Peanut Butter Fudge

I don't usually share this recipe with ANYBODY, and I mean anybody.  So everyone should feel extra special because I have decided that it is time for the world to know the secret of my fudge. :) Everyone that I have ever made this for LOVES it, and that is not an exaggeration.  Everyone really loves this recipe, I always have to make a double batch at both Christmas and Thanksgiving.  I don't usually use real butter when I cook, but when I bake or make any kind of sweets I use real butter.  For this recipe I suggest using real butter instead of margarine because it tastes soooo much better.  I didn't take any pics of this recipe, I know such a slacker, but when I make it at Christmas or Thanksgiving I'll take some and put them here for you all to see.  Also, I don't butter my pan I spray it down with cooking spray.  :)  After it has been chilled you can invert the pan to get the fudge out and then cut it into whatever size squares you would like.  It is extremely rich though, so small to medium squares are best.  Anyways, I hope you all enjoy this recipe and the delicious fudge that it makes. :)
