Peanut Butter Fudge for Holiday Treat Gifts
Ever since I could remember, my mom would make peanut butter fudge around the holidays. My family loved it, and soon it become a tradition to make peanut butter fudge once a year and it could only be during Christmas time. I warn you–this fudge recipe is so good and addicting you might gain some weight consuming this fudgey-goodness that I can’t stop eating! So, now with my family, I like to make a big batch and include the peanut butter fudge on our neighbor holiday treat gift plates.
