I make these all the time for the kids easy peanut butter fudge balls&bars:) They only require 3 ingredients and so simple to make I have made them for years. They were my late grandpas favorite. I use to make them for him he just loved them, he was a peanut butter LOVER:)I miss him so much, he has been gone almost 3 months now, and it seems to be getting easier but he is still always thought of, and I have him tucked away here in my heart. The recipe is as follows..
2 sticks of butter- I use blue bonnett,its my favorite for baking
3/4 a jar of peanut butter-jif is my next favorite
and a pound of powdered sugar(slightly more if needed)
I put the butter and peanut butter in large pan and stir until completely liquid form and o let me tell you the smell.. YUMMY:)
allow to boil when I say boil I mean it will start to pop and be careful it will pop peanut butter on you sometimes..lol..
I stir and let it slightly pop(aka slightly pop boil)
remove from heat and add the pound of powder sugar slightly over if needed it will look someone like a peanut butter cookie recipe after stir with powdered sugar
MAKE INTO BALLS OR POUR INTO SMALL PAN TO MAKE BARS
IT IS VERY GREASY LOOKING!!!THATS FROM THE BUTTER AND PEANUT BUTTER MIXING TOGETHER, HEY ITS FATTENING SO THAT GREASY LOOK GOES AWAY AS SOON AS YOU LET IT SET UP IN FRIDGE FOR AN HOUR OR LIL LONGER!!
after the are firm, the greasy look will be gone after they harden, remove from fridge. Place semi sweet mini chocolate chips in a bowl and melt in microwave untill completely melted and add chocolate drizzles on the balls and bars, I added drizzle on my balls and a chocolate layer on top my bars.
put back in fridge to harden chocolate and ta-da it is done, an easy 3 ingredient peanut butter idea, NOW I AM SURE YOU WILL SAY THIS IS A 4 INGREDIENT THAT IS IF YOU DECIDE TO ADD THE CHOCOLATE, AND THAT IS UP TO YOU:)
