A huge thank you to a wonderful thrifty member. She sent a no bake, bake sale recipe for fudge. It was one cup of peanut butter and one tub of pre made frosting. I made it this weekend.

Microwave the peanut butter (I used chunky) for one minute add triple chocolate frosting and microwave for another minute, then I added cashews. Stir and pour in a wax paper lined dish. Yes, it took two minutes, was a huge hit and will be a staple for gifts in the future. Don't pass up this excellent recipe. Thank you for sharing this with all of us!

Wonderful recipes. I just made the 12 0z semisweet chocolate chips and a tub of vanilla frosting. I am an 80 year old lady and these are perfect recipes that meet my needs for something easy with fewer ingredients, yet tastes delicious. Many thanks.

Hi Ann,

One cup of peanut butter microwave one minute

add 1 tub (any flavor) frosting and microwave one more minute

Mix and add nuts, if desired. Pour into a wax paper line pan and refrigerate.

I have never had this fail and it is eaten as soon as I serve it! Everyone asks for the recipe!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

Put one 12 ounce bag of Reese's peanut butter chips in a glass

bowl, spread them out so that they are not all in the middle of

the bowl and they will melt easier. Cook in microwave for 1 and

1/2 minutes. Take out and stir, then stir in one can vanilla

frosting (NOT WHIPPED), stir real well and put back in microwave

and cook for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Take out, add 1 teaspoon vanilla

and pinch of salt, and stir. Put in a 8x8 inch or 9x9 inch

buttered pan. Cool in refrigerator for 20 minutes, cut and eat.

This recipe is so easy that my husband made all the fudge this year with this recipe, trying many different combinations. We make homemade fudge and give to friends every year. The one that he made that is my favorite was with white chocolate chips, vanilla frosting, 1 teaspoon coconut flavoring and 1 cup of flake coconut. Remove the labels from the frosting cans, wash, dry thoroughly, and replace the label with bright Christmas wrapping paper. Fill cans with cut pieces of assorted flavors of fudge for gift giving. Perfect gift for the mailman, paperman, favorite bank teller, etc. You get the picture.

Frosting is called "icing sugar" here (UK), I've also seen US sites call it "powdered sugar".

No frosting is another word for icing. In the context of these recipes it is pre-made store bought kind.
