Nothing says Christmas like FUDGE!!!!  I made chocolate fudge last month as a treat for a friend's birthday, so I decided to make peanut butter fudge for Christmas.  I like this easy fudge for 2 reasons.  The fudge that you can feel the sugar in is good, but it is SO sweet and rich and this one isn't like that.  It's rich, but you don't feel the sugar granules.  The fudge that you use cups of sugar in also has to be cooked on the stove top.  This one DOES NOT!!  Oh, 3 reasons ... this one always turns out right! Enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

2 packages of peanut butter chips
4 Tb. butter or margarine
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Mix the first 3 ingredients together in a bowl and put it in the microwave for 1 minute.  Stir and microwave for 30 more seconds.  Stir in vanilla and salt.
Line an 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan with foil.  I used the no stick foil or you can spray regular foil with butter.  Pour mixture into pan and refrigerate overnight.  The next day, take the pan out of the refrigerator and remove the fudge.  Let it sit for an hour before cutting into small squares.

*Use milk chocolate chips if you'd rather have chocolate fudge.  OR make both and pour the chocolate fudge on top of the peanut butter fudge.  Let the peanut butter fudge chill for 2 hours before pouring the chocolate on top.  If you decide to make the chocolate peanut butter fudge, use a 9x13 pan.
