I thought I’d share a great recipe that my awesome wife makes for the family around the holidays: Chocolate-Peanut Butter Fudge! Total prep time is around an hour and it’s a SUPER easy recipe that anyone can make! Trust me…you’ll thank me when it’s all said and done (and your family will, too!!).
To start off, here are the ingredients you’ll need:
- Unsalted butter, softened, for brushing
- 1 14 -ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
- 2 pinches salt
- 2 cups peanut butter chips
Alright…here are the directions!
Simply line an 8-inch-square baking pan with foil (make sure you press it into the corners and up the sides). Leave an overhang on 2 sides, though. Then brush the foil with butter.
Combine 3/4 cup condensed milk, the chocolate chips, and a pinch of salt into a medium saucepan.
Combine the remaining condensed milk, the peanut butter chips, and a pinch of salt in a separate saucepan.
Now put both pans over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally until the chips are all melted and smooth.
Spoon the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan, leaving spaces between the spoonfuls. Spoon the peanut butter mixture into the gaps. Brush an 8-inch square of parchment paper with butter and lay it directly on top of the fudge. You should press to flatten evenly and fill any gaps.
Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Lift the foil to remove the fudge from the pan and cut into 1-inch squares.
SIT BACK AND ENJOY!!
