You may be asking yourself if you are a frequent visitor to this site “what is healthy about fudge” the answer; absolutely nothing. But life is all about balance. If you have adopted a healthier lifestyle (hopefully with some of my recipes and exercise) an occasional indulgence is good for the soul and this recipe is too good not to share. I also am assuming you will make a batch for your family and friends and not eat the whole pan yourself! This recipe came to me from a friend of a disgruntled worker at a famous candy company who was let go after 16 years of service without a pension. She had only this one recipe but she promptly shared it with all her friends. A sad story indeed but her loss is our gain.

Mix eggs and powdered sugar till fluffy. When chocolate is melted stir in peanut butter and vanilla. Add chocolate mixture to egg mixture and mix till combined add nuts if desired. Pour into a baking pan and chill. Cut into squares and serve.
