Nutterbutter Fudge {Microwave}



OH.MY.SOUL!!!!!!!!!

This easy fudge is fantastic! Maybe even Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious!

Only 4 simple ingredients - a microwave - an 8" X 8" pan and you are all set!

Honestly, it took less than 2 minutes to make this irresistible treat. 

This would make a special gift for the holidays or if you need to make something quick for a bake sale or potluck. 

I used the little (round,tall) tub of mini Nutterbutter cookies (at the Dollar store) - worked perfectly. I'm a gal who loves crunch, and having that extra YUM to bite into made this perfect for me. 

I found the recipe at Kristin's Knook and know I will be making it for the holidays. I've already stocked up when I found peanut butter chips on sale. 

Not long ago, we had an out-of-town friend spend the night (Hi Kristal!). She's always been WILD about peanut butter fudge.  After tasting mine, she went & bought the ingredients so I could make it so she could take it with her.  
*-*

(And six months later when I was in touch with her, she told me she's made this awesome fudge 50 times!...hmm...she does have a tendency to exaggerate a little bit=) 

MMMM good stuff!


NUTTERBUTTER FUDGE

1/2 c. peanut butter
1 - 11 ozs. bag Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
(I suggest using name brand for fullest flavor)
1 - 14 ozs. can sweetened condensed milk
1 container mini-Nutterbutter cookies (or about 10 large, crushed coarsely

Line an 8" X 8" pan with foil & spray with cooking spray.
(I used nonstick foil)

In a microwavable bowl, melt the peanut butter, chips and sweetened condensed milk together.  After 45 seconds on high, I stirred and stirred until it was all nearly melted, then zapped it for another 15 seconds. (Be careful not to overcook..
you just want everything melted together.) Fold in cookie crumbs. Spread evenly in pan and refrigerate to harden. 

(Don't let a drop go to waste (waist!) Grab a spatula and be sure to lick up every tasty bite left in the bowl!=)
