It’s a holiday staple, but I am a huge proponent of fudge in all the months.
It’s only fair.
Because I don’t get what makes fudge only good to gift. I mean, don’t you sit around funneling fudge into your face all year long?
Well, you should.
Because fudge rules.
Also, I didn’t know it, but peanut butter and banana kinda rules too.
I always said that the flavor combination “wasn’t my favorite”. Which are actually my code words for “yack, gross, sucks, blech.”
But I know some people really like it.
Well, I’ll tellyou…this fudge has changed my mind.
Elvis was onto something.
Peanut Butter Banana Fudge.
First grab your banana chips…
Give them a pretty good chop. You’ll need 3/4 cup…
Over a double boiler melt your peanut butter chips, 2 Tbsp butter and sweetened condensed milk.
I always use a double boiler because the microwave and I don’t agree on melting chocolate.
When that’s melted, stir in your banana chips.
Next up you’ll need your banana liquidy. It gave me the chance to use the miniature food processor that I thought I had to have.
Again, over the double boiler, melt your white chocolate, butter and liquid banana…
When that’s melted, pour it over your peanut butter layer…
Let it set up and then cut into squares…
You don’t have to eat on a tiny piece of wood, like I did.
