Liz. She’s my best friend. And flatmate. And the only person I know that has a sweeter tooth than me.
Queue a present that she can really get on board with: Peanut butter and chocolate fudge squares. This is a really rather easy, no baking required recipe which I think makes a really good, simple home made gift. At least for Liz anyway. I’ve slightly adapted the recipe from one of Nigella’s. I found that when I made it the first time the fudge was too crumbly.
So go ahead, try out this recipe, skip out the gift part and eat the whole tray yourself!
7oz Smooth peanut butter
7oz Icing sugar
2oz Softened butter
50z Reese’s pieces
7oz Milk chocolate
3.5oz Plain chocolate
1 tbs Butter.
1. Line and 8×8 inch square tin.
2. Place Peanut butter, softened butter and icing sugar in a mixer and blend until the mix is evenly combined. Then Stir in the Reese’s pieces.
3. Tip the mixture into the tin and smooth it out packing it quite tightly.
4. In a bain-marie melt both chocolates and the butter. Even spread over the peanut butter base and place in the fridge until set.
5. Remove from the fridge and cut into squares.
-The fudge will be easier to cut if you turn it upside down first.
– You don’t need a blender to make the base, it will work just as well with a bowl and a spoon. (Just a little more elbow grease is required!)
