Peanut Butter Fudge
You might have seen on Instagram, but I was demanding that people remove this fudge from me. Demanding as in “Please take this fudge away from me! I can’t stop eating it!”.
I told Matthew “Get it out of here”, so he tried and I held the fudge pan so tight with tears in my eyes moaning “Don’t take the fudge from me”. So he didn’t, and I ate more. And then I said “Please take this fudge away from me!”. This cycle happens every single night.
Last night after a delicious Stuffed Pepper Casserole dinner, it was dessert time. So we got out the fudge pan. Matthew passed me a piece of fudge when innocent little me proclaimed “That’s way too big, please cut it in half”. Oh look at me, I’m so dainty.
2 minutes later, I was exclaiming “Where’s that other half! Add the crumbs too! I see crumbs on the bottom of the pan! Put them on top! Shovel it in my mouth!”. From proper to monstrous in 2 minutes, that’s what this fudge will do for you.
So now that I have told you that you will have a fudge addiction and turn into a after dinner monster, I ask that you please try this fuge, because I believe everyone in life deserves a piece of this fudge. I am pretty sure after having one piece your life will be changed forever and all good things will happen to you, you will have perfect good luck.
Until the fudge runs out, then you have to make a new batch, then everything will be good again. Until the fudge runs out, then you have to make a new batch, then everything will be good again. Trust me though, it’s totally worth it.

Ok enough, please make this fudge.
Now chill…. overnight preferably.
Here comes the crazy party.
Usually I take a picture as soon as something is done, but with this fudge I had to eat it before I could take a picture. I just couldn’t resist. And it went an entire day like this. And then the next day. And then finally I was like “Pamela, stop the madness! Take a picture of the final fudge, because if you don’t you will have to make it again”. Which is actually a great idea to be honest, but also kinda horrifying because this cycle would just come continue. This is how much was left before I could get to final pictures. Guys, it’s really good. I can’t even tell you.
