Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

I love fudge, who doesn't?  Usually it seems like it's a huge pain to make and I don't make it very often.  Until the other day when I found this recipe.  It was all done and in the pan in under 5 minutes.  And the best part - it was really good!  Bonus points to this recipe for being a double whammy of easiness and tasty.  This was the first thing I made in a long day of baking, so I was happily surprised that it was so easy and tasty.  I know that I will be making this again and again. 

Take a saucepan, melt some butter and peanut butter together until smooth, take it off the heat, add chocolate chips, vanilla extract and confectioners sugar and stir until smooth.  Put in a foil lined 8" pan and stick it in the fridge - done.  I'm pretty sure even those who can't bake at all will master this one.  This will make a great gift to someone for the holidays or to bring to a party.  And if you want to make it festive, add whatever sprinkles or sugars to the top of the fudge before you put it in the fridge to set.
