Step 2: Heat Milk and Sugar

First we take our sugar and our milk and put them in a sauce-pot. Then set the burner on your stove to medium-low heat. Next slowly heat up the mixture until it starts to bubble/boil. Once it gets to that stage let it boil for 2 and a half minutes, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn. Up until the stage stir occasionally. Then remove it from the heat.

Step 3: Vanilla Extract and Peanut Butter

Now let's add in the vanilla extract and peanut butter and stir them really well until the fudge base gets nice and smooth.

Step 4: Pour, Spread, Set

Now pour the mixture into an 8x8 pan that has been lined with parchment paper, or if you don't have that, just spray the pan well with kitchen spray. I like to use parchment paper because it makes it really easy to pull it out. Spread it so it is level with a spatula. Then let it cool down so it can set up.

Step 5: Cut and Enjoy!

Now that it has set up, go ahead and cut into it. You can make the squares as big or as small as you like. :) Enjoy!
