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

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge recipe

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…

  12. 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!

  13. The fudge looks great!
