Welcome to The Daily Dish 2nd Annual Holiday Bake-Off!
This year’s first prize-winning recipe comes from Tracie W., a Floridian with a passion for FUDGE. Having won the 2008 Bake-Off with her Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge recipe, she’s back to wow us with another. Tracie writes: If you really love old fashioned fudge, but find it hard to make, this recipe is for you. It couldnâ€™t be simpler, and the candy tastes like chocolate peanut butter fudge without all the work. Hereâ€™s how you can make a batch in less than 10 minutes.
Whether given as gifts or offered to guests, these scrumptious salt free fudgies will leave you & yours clamoring for more. Easy to make and even easier to eat, each candy has a dry, flaky texture – akin to the Cadbury Flake for those familiar with it. My family and I loved the recipe just as is, but for a truly decadent treat, try enrobing each piece of fudge in white, dark or milk chocolate. Oh my.
Yields 3 dozen candies.
SODIUM CONTENT: 4 mg per candy
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 c. baking cocoa
1/2 c. milk
2/3 c. unsalted peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
Mix sugar, butter, cocoa and milk in saucepan. Bring to a boil quickly on the stove top, on high heat, stirring constantly.
Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and boil 6 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and beat in peanut butter.
Let sit for five minutes; meanwhile put parchment paper or aluminum foil sheets on counter.
Drop spoonfuls of the mixture in dollops on the parchment or aluminum. (For this step I used a tiny ice cream scoop & it worked wonders!)
Let harden and cool. Store in airtight container.
