Peanut Butter Fudge

This has become our favourite family treat. I use it to bribe the kids. If you don't want your children to fight - bribe them with this. If you want them to clean up their room to perfection, offer them some of this when they're finished. It always works!

My recipe is an adaption from Sophie Dahl's which is found here.

Peanut Butter Fudge

125 gms butter
500gms brown sugar
120 mls milk
250gms Crunchy Peanut Butter (I use Extra Crunchy)
300gms Icing Sugar (Powdered Sugar for you Americans who are reading this).

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk and bring to the boil for 2-3 minutes without stirring.
Remove fromheat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla to taste.
Place icing sugar in a large bowl and pour the hot butter and sugar mixture on top. Using a wooden spoon, mix until smooth. Pour into a square baking tray and cool. Place in fridge. Cut into squares.
It won't last long enough to put into an airtight container.
