I have only made a couple of recipes for making candy and that has been awhile. I wanted to make some fudge for the NNL Dinner Club Saturday night. 

I searched through a number of cookbooks and found several that sounded interesting. Then I picked up my from Amish and Mennonite Kitchens cookbook and turned to the Candies section. The word that immediately caught my attention was "uncooked". I knew I had to try it. 

I think most recipes for "uncooked" fudge would just say "easy".  After reading the ingredients, I still wonder why peanut butter was omitted from the title. It is a pleasant surprise when you take a bite. If you have anyone with a peanut allergy, you could always use almond butter or soy butter.


1       lb confectioner's sugar (4 cups)
1       cup butter, melted (2 sticks)
1/2   cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2   cup cocoa
1       teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt

Combine the  powdered sugar and cocoa. 
Add the rest of the ingredients. 

Mix well.

Butter a 8 or 9 - inch square pan. Spread the mixture evenly in the pan.

Place in the refrigerator for several hours.

Cut into squares.

Makes about 1-3/4 lbs of fudge.
