Okay on to the recipe! I love chocolate and I love peanut butter, so a chocolate peanut butter fudge? Count me in! I used to be very intimidated at the thought of making fudge, but I promise this recipe is super simple! The trick is to NEVER stop stirring. I mean seriously, do not stop stirring the entire time.

Ingredients:
3 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of butter or margarine
2/3 cup of evaporated milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla
6 ounces of semi sweet chocolate pieces
7 ounce jar of marshmallow creme
1/2 cup of peanut butter

Directions:
I think for this recipe it makes everything easier if you measure everything out first and have it ready to use as you need it. Since you have to stir the entire time, you won’t have a chance to measure out chocolate or peanut butter in the middle of baking.

Start by combining the butter, sugar, and evaporated milk in a medium pot. Bring it to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.

Reduce the heat to medium and continue to boil for 4 minutes, still stirring constantly so it doesn’t burn on the bottom.

After those 4 minutes, turn off the heat and stir in the chocolate pieces and peanut butter.

Then add in the jar of marshmallow creme and teaspoon of vanilla. Keep stirring to blend everything together and make sure it doesn’t get grainy.

Once blended pour the fudge into a greased pan. I generally use a 8 x 11 glass pan because I like my fudge a bit thicker. You could also use a 9 x 13 pan and it would be a bit thinner.

Once the fudge is cooled you can cut into squares or large blocks. I like to cut smaller squares and then place them in cupcake liners if I’m going to a party or cookie exchange.

I took a large white platter and cut some window cling on my Cricut to decorate the plate and I think it turned out so cute! I can’t wait to cut some snowflakes and decorate Jude’s bathroom mirror.

    Ooh I love fudge and love peanut butter! Sounds delicious and I love how you put them on cupcake liners!

    • I mean it’s pretty much the best combination ever! And I’ll tell you a secret, the recipe originally was supposed to be a layered fudge, but my mom read the directions wrong and just combined everything at once. But it was so good so that’s how we always make it now! Oops!

  • Elizabeth

    This sounds amazing! I love fudge and my husband loves peanut butter so I’m definitely going to have to try this!

  • Laura Keenan

    Fudge is my weakness! Give me all the fudge!!!

  • Sharon Garofalow

    This recipe sounds delicious! We have a peanut allergy in the house and he sometimes asks me if I like peanut butter. For the most part I don’t, but when it’s mixed with chocolate…heck yes!

    • I bet you could make this without peanut butter (just like double the chocolate?) and then it would be nut free!

  • This would be a great gift for the holidays! I don’t like chocolate (I know gasp) but I think you just sold me on the Cricut!

    • You don’t like chocolate!?!?! No seriously, that’s insane! But YES I’m in love with my Cricut, if you have any questions about it let me know, I sell them through my other business!

  • Im the only one in the family who makes fudge, this is the perfect addition to my recipe collection- chocolate and PB are a match made in heaven!

  • Julia Goolia

    Yesssss, seriously could not make a more perfect dessert in my opinion. RICH and peanut butter and chocolate. Yes, please.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    This looks scrumptious! And, it sounds like it’s fairly easy to make if all the ingredients are ready to go!
