Teacher gifts almost overwhelm me. There’s so many of them to do. Every year I say that this is going to be the year that I am organized. They’ll be thought out, made or bought, and wrapped well in advance. Ha! Last year, I was on top of it. And it was so nice.
This year, I had lofty plans. On a trip to the city last month, I picked up cute little Christmas loaf pans. I was going to bake a loaf of some sort in them, wrap them in cello, tie with a ribbon, and ta da! Cute little gift. Except it didn’t happen that way. First of all I lost the pans. Then I found them, but didn’t have enough time to do anything in them. What to do? Cause an empty pan just doesn’t say Merry Christams, no matter how cute it is!
Finally I remembered the pan of peanut butter fudge in the fridge that I had made the day before. So I put some fudge in a little bag, placed it in the pan, tied some festive ribbon around it, added a cute little tag, and…done! Quick and easy.
Here’s my fudge recipe. This is such an easy recipe to make. And very yummy, too.
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup peanut butter
3 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tsp vanilla
Melt butter and peanut butter together on stove.
Add icing sugar, flour and vanilla. Stir well. Put in 8×8 pan, and chill in fridge.
That’s it. Enjoy! Let me know if you try it.
