Notes

Can you make the Best Peanut Butter Fudge in the Microwave?

Combine all of the ingredients into a microwave safe bowl. Heating for only 30 seconds at a time, stirring thoroughly at every break, until only a few lumps remain.
The chocolate mixture will continue to melt outside your microwave so continue to stir until the last few lumps have disappeared and the mixture is smooth and blended.
Although tempting, do not microwave for longer than 30 seconds at a time or your chocolate mixture can and will burn. The chocolate will ruin and you will end up starting over. 
Add chopped treats and pour into your prepared pan. Decorate and refrigerate!
