I have been making these ever since they first came out in the Taste of Home magazine. They are so quick to throw together and the perfect little sweet treat after a nice dinner. Whenever my husband asks for them I have no problem making them for him.

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!

The recipe I've been wanting and have been wishing for for years!! (I remember eating them when my mother and a friend fixed them nearly 10 years ago.) :-)

This fudge was very good. I used 2 teaspoons of cocoa, 1/2 teaspoon of water, and 2 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter.
