My sister has a sweet tooth (like me) and she has just about everything a woman could desire (unlike me) so I always like to make her homemade sweets for birthdays and Christmas. She loves fudge and I've made quite a few varieties for her before but I wanted to use what I had on hand and that was peanuts. Adding rock salt or salt flakes to chocolate, caramel etc has become very popular so I wanted to add just a bit of salt to some caramel fudge with peanuts added until I came across this recipe by Stephanie from The Joy of Baking.
I'm warning you. This recipe is way too easy and just way too delicious and rich to be enjoyed too much. It is very similar to the centre of Reece's Peanut Butter Cup which also lends itself to another danger. One of my favourite ever combinations; chocolate and peanut butter. See what you think and see how it compares to traditional fudge or a Peanut Butter Cup.
