Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge
This could be the easiest peanut butter fudge recipe that you will find today. And unlike so many fudge recipes, this one at least includes some redeeming ingredients. Well, perhaps only one redeeming ingredient (perhaps two). Peanut butter is a great food, especially for growing kids, who need dense and nutritious food that they will also eat, a sometimes difficult combination to get together. Kids can be so fussy and getting them to eat enough of the right foods can be a big challenge (some parents might say it is an impossibility). But peanut butter is a food that most kids, unless they are unfortunately allergic to it, will gobble up every time, in any configuration that you can get it in to them. So peanut butter is a great food to keep around and to let the kids gobble up, and perhaps this peanut butter fudge recipe is not the worst way to get some nutrition in to them.
Peanut butter is a great food and full of nutrients, as long as you buy a variety that does not add in more sugar or more salt. For example, peanuts are a great source of monounsaturated fats, the good fat that is also found in the so called Mediterranean way of eating that is good for the heart. And peanuts are good for your heart, too. Peanuts have been shown, when consumed as part of a good food plan, to lower your risk of cardiovascular disease by more than 20 percent when compared to the average American food plan that does not include peanuts. Peanuts are action packed with loads of other important nutrients, too, including vitamin E, niacin, protein, manganese, and folate. All of these are important nutrients that support our good health. Peanuts are also a source or resveratrol, the phenolic antioxidant that you have heard about from red wine and red grapes.
So the peanut butter found in this fudge recipe could go a long way to providing your kids with plenty of good nutrition, too. And, the peanuts will also slow the absorption of the sugar that is loaded in this fudge recipe, and may possibly help to slow down any sugar rush or sugar spike. So even if peanut butter fudge is still a rich treat loaded with butter and sugar, at least there is some goodness to be found in the snack. This particular recipe comes together quite easily and well since it does not require you to bring the butter, sugar and milk together to the soft ball stage. The peanut butter fudge recipe does not require the traditional long time of stirring (usually by hand) to help the mixture thicken and solidify. Enjoy it soon!
