Not all of Grandma's recipes are time-consuming--her fast fudge proves it! She stirred up a batch for us grandkids every time we visited. Now, I'm carrying on the tasty tradition for my family whenever we want a quick chocolate treat with a peanut butter twist.

"I am a big fan of peanut butter and chocolate. These are fantastic. You are definitely going to want to quadruple the recipe. I have been making these since 1998 and they always turn out great."

"I quadrupled the recipe and used Hersheys Dark Cocoa instead of regular cocoa. I made teaspoon sized balls, then flattened them with the bottom of a crystal salt shaker dipped in powdered sugar. I brushed off the excess sugar so it was only with in the cut crystal design, so it left a sweet little snowflake-like pattern on each button. Also, just a hint, work up the dough with your hands, it blends together much more smoothly. I'll definitely make these again!"
