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.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter


  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter; remove from the heat. Add cocoa and mix well. Stir in sugar. Add milk and stir until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper; flatten tops and shape into 1-in. patties. Refrigerate until serving.
