Hi Lynn.....welcome to this site.  Happy to have you!  Noone is sure what the brownie points are for...that has been a "hot topic" since this new site was revamped.  Perhaps one of these days, VVB will come up with some fantastic idea for their use.  As to P/B Fudge.....I just add P/B to any chocolate fudge that I happen to be making.  Sometimes, I should have added less.....sometimes more....but regardless, it tastes GOOD!!  P/B and Chocolate together is super!!

Welcome Lynn.
As everyone has said do not worry about the Brownie Points.  This is just a nice site and helpful people willing to share recipes.

As to your Peanut Butter Fudge.
I just put dollops of peanut butter in with the regular fudge and swirl it through.  If I come across one that sounds good I will post it for you.

If you have any great recipes they would be welcome.  I am particularly fond of peanut butter and chocolate so I am always looking for new recipes that contain those two ingredients.

Here ya go....
I remembered seeing an episode of Alton Brown's Good Eats and he did a Peanut Butter Fudge.  I did a quick look for it and here it is. It is done in the microwave.
Peanut Butter Fudge
8 oz butter
1 Cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 lb powdered sugar
Line an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper.  Allow ends to hang over on 2 sides of the pan.
In a microwave safe bowl combine butter and peanut butter.  Cover with plastic wrap.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Stir mixture, re cover and microwave on high for another 2 minutes.
Add vanilla and powdered sugar and stir until mixture looses its gloss and becomes hard to stir.
Press into prepared pan.

You can get the recipe from the Food Network.  I recall watching the show, I looked at the reviews most were favorable.
If you try this one let me know how it turns out.

Yes please tell me if it is good.  I have never made fudge in the microwave and I love peanut butter so I am curious how this turns out.
As a matter of fact I do not do a whole lot with the microwave I am sure I could put it to much better use I just have to "practice".

Hi Lynn!
Welcome aboard to VBB!
I hope you enjoy it here!
As for the brownie points, they don't have any use, all they do is rack up every day!
And for the peanut butter fudge, 
Here is a recipe: 
Though I never tried it before..

Peanut Butter Fudge:

1 cup (240 ml) smooth peanut butter

1 cup (230 grams) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 pound (4 cups) (450 grams) confectioners' (powdered or icing) sugar, sifted




Peanut Butter FudgeLine the bottom and sides of an 8 or 9 inch (20 or 23 cm) square pan with aluminum foil or wax paper. Butter, or spray with a non stick cooking spray, the foil or wax paper.

Place the peanut butter, butter, and salt in a large microwaveable bowl and cook in the microwave for one to two minutes on high. Stir and continue to microwave (if needed) until the ingredients are completely melted. (You can also melt the ingredients in a heatproof bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water.) Then, using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir in the vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Spread the fudge into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon. Cover and place in the refrigerator until firm (at least two hours).

To serve, cut into 1 inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Makes about 64 - 81 one inch (2.5 cm) pieces of fudge.
