The big day is fast approaching. Do you have your cookie trays ready to go? I’ve had so many requests for peanut butter toffees that I decided to prepare and display them. I mean, why not. It’s such an easy recipe that it didn’t take me long to make it. The peanut butter fudge recipe can be made in about five minutes and is ready in about two hours, covered, in the refrigerator. Caramel is not much easier to prepare than that.
You love caramel, but you don’t want to have to find your candy thermometer and stir until you need an ice pack for your arm. Plus, if you don’t cook the caramel to the right temperature for the right amount of time, you won’t get the creamy result you’re looking for. Instead, you’ll end up with grainy pieces that you’ll have to throw away or pawn off on the neighbors!
1 pound box of confectioner’s sugar
2 T of butter
1/3 C milk
1 C peanut butter
Place the sugar, butter and milk in a large mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove, beat the ingredients with a hand mixer until well blended. Microwave for another 30 seconds, then add peanut butter and blend by hand or with a hand mixer until combined. Spread in a foil-lined 8×8 pan. Let cool, then cut and rejoice! Everyone will love it! !!!!!!
