Chocolate Peanut Fudge

Chocolate Peanut Fudge

This afternoon I came in, flicked the kettle on, opened the biscuit tin and – it was official we’d had burglars – they had stolen every last biscuit.

I desperately cast my mind back to the previous day when the realisation hit me that I, not burglars, not the dog (which is good as we don’t own a dog) had eaten the last cookie. 

 

 

I opened the fridge and stared into the abyss. It had been one of those days and I needed a treat – something big small would do but there was nothing but a couple of jars of peanut butter hidden away at the back. A jar of peanut butter. Peanut butter. ‘Aha’ I thought ‘I can do something with that!’ Something simple. Something quick. Something totally scrummy!!!

 

 

Ten minutes, 1 bowl and 7 ingredients later I placed a tray of ‘Chocolate Peanut Fudge’ (it didn't actually have a name at that point) into the freezer to set it as quickly as possible.  Half an hour and 5 checks later it was set and as I took my first bite all the stresses of the day melted away. This was definitely a keeper!!
