Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Well hello!

I hope you are having a wonderful 5 days before Christmas. It’s Christmas Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve!! I got all excited yesterday when it snowed then I woke up and the sun melted it all away. 😦 It’s such a tease. I’m praying for a white Christmas this year!

Today’s Christmas dessert is Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge. This recipe takes me way back to when I was super little; I remember getting Baking Bombs from my amazing baby sitter that had the BEST peanut butter fudge in it. So now every time I eat PB fudge, I think of Christmas.

I also think of itchy dresses when I think of Christmas.

For those of you OHIO fans who love buckeye’s (I’m raising my hand) this recipe is for you!! Imagine taking a bunch of buckeyes and smashing them into a dish and then cutting them into squares. Well that’s what you are going to get if you make this recipe.

I put these in my baking bombs for the neighbors and friends this year and I highly recommend you do the same because if you keep this whole batch in your house, you will gobble it all up in one sitting. It’s the truth. I warned you. But hey! No judgement. 🙂

By the time I wrote this blog post, all the fudge was gone and I forgot to take a picture of it. So I asked my dad what I could take a picture of and he told me this was the closest thing I was going to get to fudge.

Enough of me yakking, I’m going to post the video and skidaddle off to make my one for tomorrow. Get excited, tomorrow there’s a fancy wardrobe. 🙂

Happy Baking! Remember that Jesus loves you!
