Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

by aimee @ shugarysweets on December 20, 2012

**Before I get started on this post I need your help! I was invited to be part of a recipe contest, and I made it to the final round! If you have a quick minute, could you click over and give Shugary Sweets Chocolate Almond Fudge bites a vote? I’ll still be here. Go here: Sweetest 16 Contest. Thanks so much friends, I really appreciate all your support!

As a special thanks to all who voted, how about another FUDGE recipe? This one for the chocolate peanut butter lover in your life.

Here’s the thing about this fudge. It makes a billion bite size pieces. Seriously. One billion (or 120, whatevs).

My mom gave me this recipe years and years ago (no idea where she got it). I added the peanut butter just for fun, but if you want just a decadent chocolate fudge, you can certainly skip the peanut butter layer!

These little fudge bites will be making an appearance on my candy trays this year…along with some of my other favorite fudge flavors…

What’s your favorite flavor of fudge?

Almond Fudge Bites- not only delicious, but worthy of your VOTE (shameless plug, hehe)

Peanut Butter Fudge: for those of you who prefer more peanut butter to chocolate ratio!

Cinnabon Fudge- fudge that tastes like a cinnamon roll. You’re welcome.

Strawberry Swirl Fudge- otherwise referred to as strawberries and cream fudge. Delish.

Peppermint Fudge- gorgeous and perfect for your Christmas tray!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Yield: 120 bites

Ingredients

  • 4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 25 regular sized marshmallows
  • 12oz milk chocolate morsels
  • 12oz semi sweet chocolate morsels
  • 2 oz baking chocolate (unsweetened)
  • 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 bag (10oz) peanut butter morsels

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add marshmallows, chocolate morsels (both kinds) and baking chocolate. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, bring to a boil the sugar, milk, vanilla and butter (over medium high heat). Stirring constantly, boil for 2 minutes. Pour hot mixture over marshmallows and chocolate. Using an electric mixer (or stand mixer), beat with whisk attachment until melted and smooth (may take several minutes).
  3. Pour into a parchment paper lined 15x10x1 baking sheet.
  4. In a small saucepan on medium heat, warm condensed milk with butter. Heat until butter is melted, add in peanut butter morsels. Whisk until melted and smooth, remove from heat.
  5. Pour peanut butter over chocolate layer. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set. Cut into bites and enjoy!

A billion pieces huh? Then I am sure a package of this awesome fudge is on it’s way to my house right, because you can’t eat that many pieces of fudge :-) And just so you know…I blame you for my recent fudge addiction. I made another one this week too!

I can’t help you. I’m a little impartial to the Cinnabon variety :)

You are the fudge QUEEN! I love all the fudge recipes you post, but I have to say the chocolate/peanut butter combo is my favorite. My grandmother use to make some every year at Christmas and this reminds me of her. :-)

This looks just like my favorite fudge I buy at a sweet shoppe downtown. I’ve always thought about trying to replicate it, but I’m not very knowledgeable in the art of fudge-making! I can definitely follow your instructions though! Thank you for sharing this!!!

Can you replace the peanut butter morsels with smooth peanut butter?

Aimee, this is the 2nd fudge recipe of yours I am trying out(your PB fudge was absolutely melt in your mouth delicious!). Do you have any suggestions for a vanilla fudge? Can this recipe be altered with white chocolate morsels instead? Thank you for sharing with us all!!!!
