I’m so excited to share this recipe today! One because it’s so delicious and two because I’m also hosting the Savvy Sassy Moms Holiday Blog Hop! It’s week two and it’s all about holiday sweet treats. Week one was appetizers and side dishes, did you see my easy recipe I posted yesterday? Well today it’s all about the fudge!
This week I’m hosting the Holiday Blog Hop with these lovely bloggers!
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.
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
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.
