1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1/3-1/2 cup peanut butter (depending on your preference, I did the 1/2)
Melt the chocolate chips and butter until smooth.
Add the sugar and can of evaporated milk. Boil on low for 8 minutes. Add peanut butter and stir until smooth and creamy.
Pour into 2 small canning jars. This recipe fits perfectly. I was hoping for a little extra to keep for myself but I'll have to make more!
Using scrapbook paper (or even fabric) trace around the lid and cut out the circle. Screw lid on jar, the caning rim will hold the paper down so you don't even need to glue it.
Wrap with with some ribbon, bakers twine, or crochet thread, add a little personal tag and you have the perfect hostess gift within a few minutes!
The fudge would be perfect for the hostess(s) to enjoy after everything is cleaned and they can relax. It's the smallest little things during the holiday season that mean the most. My first one goes out tonight and I'm excited!
