My Fudgy challenge this month comes from a wonderful blog that I happened on while looking for Rocky Road Fudge. Homemade by Holman sports some of the most delicious looking recipes.
I did not change this recipe at all. It was SO good just like it was made.
Rocky Road Fudge
The other night I was craving a Reese Peanut Butter cup SO bad (it’s like my favorite candy of all time!). Anyway–I did not want to have to drive to the store because I was being lazy and I knew I probably had the stuff in the cabinet to make them myself, so I got on Food Network to see what I could come up with.
I found a recipe by Nigella Lawson that uses regular ingredients and these guys taste just like the real deal!
They are really easy to make–no cooking involved so the kids could even make this!
Peanut Butter Bars
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 1 1/3 cups confectioners’ sugar
- ¼ cup butter
- ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
For the topping:
- 7 ounces milk chocolate
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate
- 1 tablespoon butter
Stir all the ingredients for the base together until smooth. Press the sandy mixture into a 9×9 pan and make the surface as even as possible.
To make the topping, melt the chocolates and butter together (in a microwave for ease, for a minute or two on medium) and spread on the base. Put the pan in the refrigerator to set. When the chocolate has hardened, cut into small squares
