Do you ever have a craving for fudge, but don’t want to pay the exorbitant prices per pound and don’t have the time to make a batch yourself (or don’t think it’s a good idea to have a 9-inch by 13-inch sheet of fudge lying around the house)? Here’s the solution — fudgy buttons! I think they came from a Taste of Home magazine. This size batch will make an even dozen, but you could halve it if you like.
1 tablespoon baking cocoa
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Melt butter in a small saucepan and remove from heat. Add cocoa and mix well. Stir in sugar. Add milk and stir until smooth, add peanut butter and mix well. Divide into 12 parts, form into patties, and place on wax paper. Refrigerate until firm.
