We were invited to Christmas party this past weekend and I was able to try out a bunch of fun things I've found on Pinterest. This is one that didn't make it to the party due to my Peanut Butter Fudge didn't set up so I thought I'd show this one first!
I started with my Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge recipe I posted last December. This is a simple one to make and my MIL has actually requested that I make it and send it as her gift again this year!
|1||cup of butter|
|1||cup peanut butter|
|1||tsp vanilla extract|
|1||lb powdered sugar|
Prepare a pan by covering it in wax paper and spraying with nonstick cooking spray, leaving at least one inch overhang of wax paper around all edges. You can use an 8×11” baking sheet with a one inch rim or an 8×8” square pan if you want thicker fudge.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine butter and peanut butter. Microwave on high two minutes, stir and microwave two additional minutes. Stir in vanilla and powdered sugar. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined and smooth. Pour into prepared pan, smooth, and cover with another sheet of wax paper pressed directly against the surface of the fudge. Refrigerate at least two hours and cut into one inch squares.
NOW I made my fudge in my Cornbread Silicone pan, if you do not have one of these make in a circle and then cut like a pie to get triangles. I say invest in one of these pans if you don't already have one! I found this idea on Mom Lid Musings.
For the Reindeer:
Peanut Butter Fudge (in a triangle shape)
Red Pom Poms (or red dots)
Plastic Bags (Or ziplock and cut the top off)
Take your fudge put it in a plastic bag. I took some tape before I added the ribbon to make sure the bag would stay closed. I took my Elmer glue stick and added some googly eyes and then added a red pom pom for a nose. Tada all done! The longest part of this was waiting the 2 hours for the fudge to sit up.
Hope you all had a great weekend, I'm still fighting this cold and hope to make it by to say hi to everyone later Monday evening.
