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!

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.

In the past someone told me how to make peanut butter fudge using vanilla frosting, they do not remember the recipe and I have lost how to make it. Can anyone tell me what this recipe might be? Thanks,
Happy Holidays - Lisa

Just two items for Peanut Butter Fudge
Vanilla frosting (peel off seal). Microwave for 60 seconds.
Pour into bowl add Jiffy Smooth Peanut Butter 18oz jar.
Stir fast and pour into small pan. Refrigerate for a few minutes.
For a 13x9 you will need to double up.
Note this is just a small batch.
I make this with cream cheese frosting and a jar of any peanut butter and blend with a hand mixer. Spread into a pan and either eat instantly or refrigerate. No microwave needed.
Can you use sugar free frosting in the quick fudge recipes?
