Chocolate Peanut Butter Microwave Fudge

It's been a while since I posted a recipe here, so I bring you something sweet.  With my oven broken, I've been feeling a little stressed out.  When I get stressed out, I need (want?) sugar in a major way.  Yes, it does nothing for my huge hips, but it makes me feel better.  Anyway, since I can't bake the chocolate cupcakes I had planned to make, I set out to find something I could make with my microwave.  What I found, thanks to my awesome mom's suggestion, was this:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Microwave Fudge

12 oz. Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 TBSP Peanut Butter

Mix chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on high 4-5 minutes, or until mixture is melted smooth.  Do not over heat.  Once melted, remove from microwave and stir-in peanut butter. Spread in a 8x8 square pan and set aside to cool.  Cool completely before cutting.
I made it yesterday when I was feeling like crap, and grumpy as hell, and it really helped.  Matt and I liked it, so I thought I'd share.  I made it with milk chocolate chips, so the consistency is probably different than it would have been had I had semi-sweet chips in the cabinet.  I also used creamy peanut butter, and a bit more than the recipe called for, and Matt said he'd have liked for me to use crunchy.  Since I don't like crunchy, that wasn't happening.  All in all, I'd call this sweet success!

This is, of course, not my recipe.  I got it at GroupRecipes.

  2. This sounds really good. Two of my favorites are peanut butter and chocolate. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try it for my boys this weekend and will report on the result.
