I've been invited to an early New Years Eve gathering for our neighbors on Saturday, and everyone was asked to bring something simple. Finger foods, both savory or sweet.
"Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate Fudge"
Now that sounds good to me!
The recipe is very simple to make. I used little paper cups, rather than a pan for the Fudge.
A bag of Dark Unsweetened Chocolate Chips, a cup of Peanut Butter, a stick of Unsalted Butter, a large teaspoon of Vanilla, a half cup of Powered Sugar and just a few tablespoons of half and half. Place sauce pan into a double boiler. I used a larger pot with about 5" of water. Bring all to a roaring boil. Remove from the heat and in about 5 minutes stir in as many nuts as you like, I used about a half cup of chopped walnuts.
I also put a few mini marshmallows in the cups before spooning in the Chocolate Fudge.
These little single serving portions make it so much easier when giving as a gift. No fuss and no mess, especially at a party.
I'm a lover of Peanut Butter cups and this recipe is really wonderful.
I've been thinking how fast this past year has flown by. It's going to be a New Year soon. I for one am so pleased 2012 is coming. After three years, in middle of the So. Pacific, my daughter and her family will be coming back to the states to live and this makes grandma so happy! A 3 or 4 hour flight to visit them is so much better than 22 hrs on 3 planes.
(and that does not count lay-overs)
