Very easy to do. One of those ones where you realize you had to make more fudge for a holiday or gift but you wanted one that would not take much time and would be easy to do plus taste good. If love tootsie rolls with just a hint of peanut butter, you will like this. Your kids can help.

  • Servings: 12 +
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 15


1 tsp Plus 2 Tablespoons Butter, divided
2 cups Tootsie Roll Midgees
2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
3¾ cups Confectioners' Sugar
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Teaspoon
Vanilla Extract
1 cup Chopped Pecans
⅓ cup Green & Red M &m's


Line a 9-in. square pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, melt the Tootsie Rolls, peanut butter and remaining butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla (mixture will be very thick). Fold in pecans.

Spread into prepared pan. Using a sharp knife, score the surface into 1-in. squares. Press a M&M's candy into the center of each square. Cool. Using foil, remove fudge from pan; cut into squares. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2 pounds.
