Recipes for Microwave - Week 3 February 2013

I have some recipes for using the microwave that we believe are good, so thought we could share recipes for the microwave this week.

Here is a candy recipe that I have been making for years - although I don't make it too often since we could eat it all in one day.


2 sticks butter (real butter)
2 cups chocolate chips
16-oz jar crunchy or extra crunchy peanut butter (I use JIF)
1 lb. box powdered sugar

Put butter and chocolate chips in a large glass bowl and place in microwave. Microwave on high for 1 minute; then stir mixture well. If chips are not totally melted return to microwave and run on high for another 30 seconds. Remove and stir well. Put the peanut butter in the chocolate mix and stir well. Add box of powdered sugar and mix thoroughly. It gets tougher to stir once you have added powdered sugar so need some muscle. When thoroughly mixed, spray a 9 x 13 pan with Pam (or equivalent) or you can butter the pan well. Put fudge in the pan and spread out evenly. Place in refrigerator overnight. When ready to cut fudge into squares, remove from refrigerator for 30 minutes or so before cutting.

This is so easy and so very good. It is quick and easy for the busy holidays.
