Easy peasy peanut butter fudge

This recipe is so simple, fast and no need for a candy thermometer! It's always great to have a tasty quick recipe under your belt for those times you are invited somewhere last minute and you need to bake a treat or like myself, when a huge peanut butter craving hits!!

All you need:
1 cup of smooth peanut butter
1 cup of butter
4 cups of powdered sugar
1tsp. vanilla

-Line a 8x8 square pan with parchment paper and set aside
-Place your peanut butter and butter in a microwave save bowl covered with plastic wrap and heat in the microwave on high for 2 mins.
-Remove from microwave, stir till everything is all melted. re-cover and heat on high for another 2 mins.
-Remove from microwave again (be careful this time as it may be hot) add your vanilla and powdered sugar. -Stir till everything is blended well. Continue to stir until your mixture looses the shiny look and starts to get a little crumbly.
-Add mixture to your parchment lined pan. Smooth out mixture and lay another piece of parchment paper on top.
-Refrigerate till set (about 2 hours)
