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.

Chocolate chips/chocolate frosting (this is for the die-hard
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.
1 can cream cheese or butter cream frosting

Some state 1 cup PB and a tub of frosting. The one I saw said 1 16 oz jar PB and 1 tub BC frosting?
I have had success using Allrecipes. It recommends an 18 ounce jar of peanut butter and a container of frosting www.allrecipes.com/
Yes you will need a tub of frosting but the amount of peanut butter you add will also depend on you. The reason you see people saying 1 cup and other saying 16 ounces is because they like it to have a more peanut butter taste.
I used a 16oz jar of pb and microwaved for 30 seconds, and did the same with a can of chocolate frosting. I then combined the 2 in a bowl, mixed, and poured in a pan to cool. Delicious!
