Have you ever met someone who goes above and beyond what’s necessary or expected?
I have a very special friend who would do anything to help you in a time of need.
So much so, that she gave a beautiful table, that she loved and recently hand painted with beautiful flowers, along with some other pieces of furniture, to a woman she didn’t know who had a house fire and lost everything.
Her kindness doesn’t stop there, though.
She loves to bless her friends and others with gifts she creates.
The other day she did something special for one of the residents of the retirement center where she works who was going to be celebrating her birthday.
She created a beautiful heart ornament, scanned and enlarged and framed a photo of the resident’s dog which she missed, and made the woman’s favorite sweet treat.
Most of us don’t do so much for our best friends.
What was that favorite sweet treat?
Peanut Butter Fudge.
My sweet friend couldn’t find her mom’s wonderful peanut butter fudge recipe, so she went online and scoured the recipes until she saw two that seemed like good possibilities…..
Both recipes were easy to make. However, if you elect to make the Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge, you either need a strong arm or a Kitchen Aid. It’s just good to be prepared.
Now as the official Peanut Butter Fudge Taste Tester and photographer…
here’s my evaluation of the two recipes.
The Peanut Butter Fudge should be called creamy PB fudge. It really is the creamiest I have ever had. I liked it because it wasn’t sicky sweet like a lot of PB fudges can be. The texture was wonderful too.
The Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge seemed more like a fudge you would get at a fudge shop, both in flavor and texture. Immediately I liked that one best as did my husband who has a real sweet tooth. We also noted that the brown sugar…my friend used dark brown sugar…gave the fudge a slight hint of something reminiscent of maple sugar.
As good as these two fudges are….and they really are good or I wouldn’t be sharing them with you…my favorite way to enjoy peanut butter is on a hot toasted English muffin. Yes, I love how the peanut butter melts into those little holes in the muffin and starts running down my fingers as I attempt to sink my teeth into its warm gooey goodness.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy peanut butter?
Which do you prefer….chocolate fudge or peanut butter fudge?
