Everyone loves peanut butter and chocolate, so this layered fudge is always a hit with family and friends. I found the recipe about 15 years ago and have been making it for the holidays ever since.

- To the remaining hot mixture, add cocoa, vanilla, and remaining chips and butter; stir until chips and butter are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour evenly over peanut butter layer in pan. Cool. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Cut into 1-in. squares. Refrigerate in airtight containers. Yield: 3-1/2 pounds.
