Peanut Butter Fudge Treats

Also from Joy the Baker.

So, I tweaked this recipe a bit and instead of using a layer of peanut butter fudge and a layer of chocolate fudge I combined them together and used my mom's recipe for 2 minute fudge with peanut butter. Either way it turned out tasty and delicious. So delicious that I had to send the dish of treats to Michael's office or I would have been tempted to eat half a pan.

Make one batch of Rice Krispy treats according to pkg directions. Spread into an even layer in a 9x13 pan. Set aside and make fudge.

2 Minute Fudge
1 lb 10X sugar
1 C cocoa (I used Hershey's)
1 stick butter
1 t vanilla
1/2 C milk
1 C peanut butter

Sift sugar and cocoa into a microwave safe bowl. Add all remaining ingredients except milk and peanut butter. Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until butter is melted (our current microwave requires 2.5 min). Pour in milk and stir vigorously. When all igredients are combined and smooth add peanut butter and stir to incorporate. You may find that you need to reheat a bit and/or add an extra splash of milk. It kind of depends on your microwave and the kind of peanut butter you use. Spread fudge over treats and refrigerate. We ate some when they were still a bit warm which was quite yummy. Let's face it, it's hard to wait.
