Tonight I made a batch of my favourite fudge. This is a recipe that I got from a family friend, Cindy, many many years ago. This is serious one of the easiest treats to make, and one of the most decadent treats. I have tried to keep it a secret for so long - but can't any longer. I made a big bunch to give as little gifts to some good friends.
4 cups of white chocolate wafers or discs (little chocolate morsels - I buy them in the bulk
1 cup of peanut butter
1/4 cup milk chocolate wafers or discs
Melt the white chocolate and the peanut butter in a large metal bowl placed on top of a pot of boiling water - make it like a double boiler. Stir continuously ensuring that it all melts together.
In a 9x12 baking pan, line the pan with waxed paper. Pour the melted chocolatey/peanut butter goodness in. Using the same process as above, melt the milk chocolate. With a spoon, place spoonfuls of the chocolate on top of the chocolate and peanut butter. With the pointy end of a skewer, swirl the chocolate all together - it makes a beautiful design. So gorgeous.
Place the pan in the fridge and let it sit. I usually like to let it chill for at least an hour. Remove it from the fridge and let it sit for a couple of minutes before cutting. I like to cut 5 strips from the wide side and then cut each strip in half.
And that's it. You have a delicious treat for yourself or for friends.
I hope that Christmas is all coming together for you all.
