Creamy and rich, this chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe is so good & easy to make. You can't go wrong with the chocolate peanut butter combination!
Ingredients
  • 4½ cups sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 18 ounces (3 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup peanut butter (use a generous cup)
Instructions
  1. Boil sugar and milk for 6 minutes while stirring constantly. (Be sure to start timing when it's at a rolling boil - you don't want to cut this time short.)
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except peanut butter.
  4. Beat well until thoroughly combined. This will be easiest with a hand mixer or KitchenAid stand mixer. Beat for around 5-10 minutes, longer if doing it by hand. If you stop too soon the butter might separate.
  5. Spread into a 9x13 pan. (See notes)
  6. Immediately drop spoonfuls of peanut butter all over the top of the still hot fudge. Use a knife to swirl the peanut butter into the fudge.
  7. After it's firmed up by bringing to room temperature and cooling completely in the fridge, cut into 1 inch squares.
  8. Leftover fudge can be stored in the fridge or freezer.
Notes
I always pour my fudge into an unlined pan. It makes the first couple pieces of fudge a little difficult to get out, but after that there are no problems. If you want every piece perfect, line your pan, both directions, with wax or parchment paper before pouring the fudge in. After it has cooled in the fridge you can lift out the paper and put it on a cutting board to cut into pieces.
