Easy Microwave Peanut Butter Fudge

- 1 cup all natural peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- Line 8 x 8 inch pan with aluminum foil sprayed lightly with nonstick baking spray. Leave an overhang on opposite sides. You will use this overhang to help remove the fudge from the pan.

- Spoon into pan and using a small offset spatula smooth the top of the fudge. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours. Using the overhang lift fudge out of pan and place on cutting board or plate. Peel off aluminum foil.
You can use any kind of peanut butter I just think the all natural tastes the best in the fudge.
Use a thin sharp knife heated under hot running water to aid in the cutting of the fudge.
