Monday's Bread Bowl: Peanutbutter Date Fudge

The Mixed Stew is going on hiatus from Nov 19 thru Nov.  23rd. We hope everyone enjoys a week of sweet repeats until then and Happy Thanksgiving. The Mixed Stew will be back on November 26 with even more yummy posts.

Ooey, gooey, deliciously chewy

We can’t keep our hands off this sweet peanut butter fudge. Preparation and cooking are very simple since all it takes is a bit of time in a microwave. The addition of dates gives our peanut butter fudge more oomph and at least the premise of a healthy element. Here is our recipe:

What you will need:
1 metal fork
1 medium-sized bowl that’s microwave safe
1 (8 x 8 inch) baking pan or 1 (9 x 5 inch) loaf pan
1 cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup dates, chopped
1 lb powdered sugar
1 cup butter, plus a bit more for greasing pan
wax paper

Cooking and Directions: Prepare the pan for use later by buttering surfaces. Place 1 cup butter in bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes until melted. Next, add peanut butter and microwave for another 2 minutes. Add powdered sugar, date pieces, and blend well with fork. Pour into buttered pan lined with wax paper. Some recommend buttering the waxed paper once it is placed in the buttered pan. Once fudge is poured into pan, place a second piece of wax paper on top of fudge and refrigerate until cool. Cut into pieces, and it will keep for one week.
