I would like to add the following caveat, lifted straight from the small print of a pub menu in Essex: "All desserts contain calories". Oh yes, and it's not suitable for nut allergy sufferers. Just in case you were wondering.

Salted peanut butter fudge
Makes enough to fill a 23 x 31cm baking tray
475g soft brown sugar
200g peanut butter (the no added salt kind)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
425g icing sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt flakes
Melt the butter over a medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and the milk and bring to the boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring. Remove from heat and stir in the peanut butter and vanilla. Pour over the icing sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Turn into the tray and sprinkle with salt. Chill until firm.
If you're feeling generous, put some in cellophane bags and tie with a pretty ribbon for a gift; or serve to guests with coffee after dinner.
