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.
More variations of Fudge
You may add 1/2 - 1 cup of chopped nuts to any of the variations
Chocolate chips/chocolate frosting (this is for the die-hard
Peanut Butter chips/chocolate frosting (tastes like Reese's
Peanut Butter Cup
Chocolate chips/vanilla frosting (not as chocolately)
Mint chocolate chips/chocolate frosting (tastes like Andes mint)
Cherry chips/chocolate frosting (tastes like a chocolate covered
Vanilla chips/any flavor frosting
Milk chocolate chips/coconut pecan frosting
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.

Mix one can of frosting either chocolate or white with one 18 oz jar of peanut butter. Line an 8x8 pan with saran wrap completely covering the inside of pan. Spread fudge mixture into pan and cover with extra wrap. Place in fridge for about half an hour. Chill completely and then cut into small squares. Keeps best in fridge.

Two Minute Fudge
(I tried this & it is good)
Take one tub of frosting mix (any flavor), microwave for one minute. Add one cup of peanut butter to the frosting and microwave an additional minute. Add nuts (if desired). Pour in waxed lined dish and refrigerate. ALWAYS a winner!
Here is a recipe I copied from the net, don't know where, so can't give credit to anyone. I have never tried it.
1 tub frosting mix
Microwave for 1 minute
add 1 cup peanut butter, and microwave for 1 minute.
Add chopped nuts.
Put in 8X8 pan lightly sprayed with non-stick spray.
1 12oz package peanut butter chips (2 cups)
1 can vanilla frosting (DO NOT USE WHIPPED)
nuts, if desired
. Line 8 or 9-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges. Place chips in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 90 seconds. stir until smooth.
2 . Add can of frosting to melted chip mixture. Mix well. Microwave 90 seconds, Mix well. Add nuts. Spread in foil-lined pan. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
3 . Remove fudge from pan by lifting foil. Remove foil; cut into squares.
Experiment a bit and have fun, use chocolate chips with chocolate frosting, butterscoth chips with vanilla frosting, peanut butter chips with chocolate frosting,
Mint chocolate chips/chocolate frosting, Peppermint Crunch chips with vanilla frosting. I have even made lemon fudge! White chips with lemon frosting..tastes like lemon drops. White chips with Strawberry frosting. Cherry cips with chocolate frosting. Coconut-Pecan frosting with dark chocolate chips. Try using Cream Cheese frosting.
Use your imagination. Any chips with any frosting!!
You may add 1/2-1 cup chopped nuts, mini marshmallows, maybe a teaspoon of vanilla, or any extract. Have fun.
What would "frosting mix" be in South Africa?
FROSTING IS USED TO PUT ON TOP OF YOUR CAKE
HERE YOU CAN BUY IT ALREADY MADE OR IN DRY FORM WHERE YOU JUST ADD WATER
Sorry, I should have added to my post showing my decorated containers that I used the Microwave Fudge recipe that Cindy Beadlady and Gaildh2 posted below.

I WONDERED ABOUT THE CONTAINERS.. THEY ARE REALLY CUTE ! I WOULD NEVER HAVE THOUGHT TO DO THAT. AND I SAVE A LOT OF MY CONTAINERS FOR OTHER USES. THANK YOU FOR THE IDEA

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