Introduction: Reindeer Nads an EZ Fudge How To

Sometimes called Buckeyes but how does that go with Christmas?  there are several variations of this ez fudge floating around the interweb, I tried several and then came up with my own variation

Step 1: What You Need

small jar of peanut butter
 1/2 package of cream cheese
 1/2 stick of butter
 1/2-3/4 box of confectioners sugar
 2 packs of  semi sweet choc bits
 hersey bar (s)
 pretzels
toothpicks

Step 2: Nuke It

in a microwave safe bowl, empty the jar of peanut butter, half a package of cream cheese and half a stick of butter, microwave at 30 second intervals stirring between intervals until melted (going longer could result in a VERY messy microwave (no pics I was to aggravated to think about it)

Step 3: Sweeten the Deal

stir the confectioner sugar into the warm mix until it forms a dough, about 3/4 of a box

Step 4: Form It

I used a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out the dough and then rolled it into balls which then were refrigerated

Step 5: Temper the Chocolate

I put approximately one and a half bags of chocolate chips in a bowl and sat that bowl in a bowl with water and microwaved until the water was boiling. I then stirred the chocolate until it was smooth and microwaved agaion for 45 seconds before stirring in 6 small hersey dark chocolate bars one at a time until they were all melted.

Step 6: Pretzel Topping

I'm sure I could have used a processor to crush the pretzels but I didn't want to dirty ALL that so I just used a cup and crushed them by hand

Step 7: Assemble

stick a toothpick in each peanut fudge ball, dip in the chocolate and then the pretzel crumbs and place them back in the refrigerator

Step 8: Share

after the chocolate has firmed up the treats can be placed together in a covered dish, they can sit out for a while but they are best cold, at least in my opinion. these are SUPER easy to make and people will be bombarding you for the recipe

    I'm definitely doing this! Did you come up with the recipe yourself?

    there are a lot of similar recipes floating around the interweb I took what I liked best and went with it. I was originally going to call these reindeer poop but my daughter made a batch of cake cookies with chocolate fudge centers and used the name first !   Here's an earlier experiment https://www.instructables.com/id/EZ-3-ingredient-Pnutbutter-fudge/  you can take any flavor icing, heat it in the microwave and stir in a half box of confectioners sugar then spread out and refrigerate. The butter and cream cheese I used in this attempt makes a very rich but slightly crumbly fudge. It really takes only minutes to make and people will be begging you for more. Just imagine for the next holiday you use a strawberry icing with a box of frozen strawberries and maybe a whole box of pwdrd sugar and dip THOSE in chocolate...........
