My short story, A Jaguar for Christmas, is not about getting a new exotic pet, as the name might have lead you to believe. Instead its about a man that doesn't really like Christmas or understand why everyone is so excited about it, finding a little holiday magic in the form of one sexy, and very naked, shifter.
Whatever this time of year means to you, I hope you find some joy in it. Not everyone can be happy right now and that's okay. We all grieve and we all heal in our own ways and that's just how its got to be.
I wanted to share my favorite holiday recipe with you all. Its not healthy and I won't pretend that I just make this in December. I have a love of sweets and only peanut butter goes over that as far as I'm concerned. Plus this thing comes together in just a few minutes in the microwave. Can't beat that. So here it is-
My Super Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
Told you it wasn't going to be healthy :)
Here's what you need;
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup peanut butter
1 stick of butter
1lb bag of powdered sugar
Everything but the powdered sugar will stay the same but sometimes I find myself needing less than that to get the right texture. You can also add in chocolate chips or butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips into this thing. It'll make it more liquid but if you've got the powdered sugar to bind it you'll be fine. And the fantastic thing is that you can remelt it if you find it didn't set right.
So here's how you make it;
put the vanilla, the butter and the peanut butter into a microwave safe dish. microwave it for 30 seconds, stir it, microwave it again for 30 seconds, stir it again, keep doing that until everything is liquid. Now bring it over and slowly start working in the powdered sugar with a spoon. Little powdered sugar, stir it in, little more, stir it in. If it gets too clumpy and you can't get the powdered sugar in it to mix then microwave it. When you've got enough in it should be pliable and sort of like a soft cookie dough texture. It really isn't exact so you might have to play with it. You can always add in more peanut butter if you need to.
Once you've got it to where it can be pushed around a bit and isn't liquid anymore then cover it with plastic wrap and put it into the fridge for about half an hour. More will get it to set and be more fudgy. I like the softer fudge and 30 minutes is usually all I can stay away from it anyway. It is super rich and a little goes a long way so watch out. This isn't the kind of sweet that you can sit in front of the TV and eat for a few hours without probably feeling sick. Its just that rich and sweet but when I need something sweet and peanut buttery this is it for me.
And it must be powdered sugar. The other kind stays gritty and makes for a really weird fudge. I tried it once, not good. You can make a half batch of this too and if you keep it more liquidy with a bit less powdered sugar it makes a great drizzle topping for a chocolate cake, brownies, or ice cream.
