By popular demand I had to whip up another batch of Peanut Butter Fudge. I topped with a layer of milk chocolate. Pretty tasty.

This looks SO good! And not difficult to make, either. Score!
Yay! No candy thermometer. Thanks, Donna John .I have a bunch of friends who are peanut butter hounds...you know...the kind that eat it right out of the jar, of which I may, or may not be guilty myself 😬?
Hmm...wonder what it would be like, with the (relatively) new dark roast peanut butter?
Donna John
Could it be bad, really?? I'm with you on the candy thermometer. :)
