Unforgettable Fudge

We obtained this recipe from family friends in Melbourne and it makes marvellous creamy fudge. I tried getting a photo of the fudge alone but those hands couldn't stop!

500g (16 oz) Milk Chocolate (*)
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
50g (2 tblsp) butter (**)
125g (1/2 cup) peanut butter

Put the lot in a saucepan and stir over low heat until it all melts and then place into lined tray. Once set in the fridge cut into small squares and stand back.
You can add in sultanas or raisins and crunchy peanut butter (as we did for the batch in the photo).

(*) Chocolate - In Australia Cadbury's works a treat. In the US you could use Hershey's (we wouldn't) but you would be better using the Sam's Club Belgian chocolate ($1 a bar at Walmart when we were there last).
(**) shortening and margarine are NOT alternatives. This works much better with real butter.
