peanut butter fudgeA sweet treat for the weekend? This peanut butter fudge is super easy! Just a little melting and stirring, pour it all into a pan to chill, and you have some tasty treats to take to the movies or wherever you're going. 

And if you're a little more ambitious, you can melt some chocolate over the top and you pretty much have a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Or smooth over some jam. But plain is perfectly yummy, too.
