Peanut Butter Fudge


8 ounces unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound powdered sugar
1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips *optional (for decorating) 


Combine the butter and peanut butter in a 4-quart microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to the peanut butter mixture and stir to combine with a wooden spoon. The mixture will become hard to stir and lose its sheen. Spread into a buttered 8 by 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper.  (* Optional *Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments until smooth.  Drop by teasponfuls on top of the spread out fudge.  Take a knive and dip the tip of the knife into the melted chocolate on top of the fudge and pull through in zig zag fashion to make a marble effect across the top of the fudge.)  Fold the excess parchment paper so it covers the surface of the fudge and refrigerate until cool, about 2 hours. Cut into 1-inch pieces and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
