Easy Peanut Butter Reese’s Cup Fudge

Easy Peanut Butter Reese's Cup Fudge

I love easy fudge. Seriously. It’s one of my favorite all-around, go-to recipes for gifting, special occasions, family get-togethers, and even just to have around the house for my own family. It’s so versatile, which makes it a lot of fun too.

My standard “easy” fudge recipe is simply 1 can of sweetened condensed milk + 3 cups of chocolate. I’ve used that formula to make Pralines & Cream Fudge, Chocolate Covered Cherry Fudge, Caramel Potato Chip Fudge, and lots of others.

Today’s fudge follows a similar ingredient pattern, but it’s slightly tweaked. Last month I discovered I could use peanut butter in place of the sweetened condensed milk in my beloved fudge recipe.  I was super excited over this for a couple of reasons– A) I get a lot of reader complaints about the SCM in my fudge recipe, and now I have a great alternative to offer! and B) I think I actually like the consistency I get from the peanut butter better than the SCM! So it’s a win-win!

This peanut butter is so easy to make and incredibly creamy. And just think of all the fun things you can do with peanut butter fudge! Adding M&Ms, Oreos, caramel…. omg, just so much potential!

I went with a fairly predictable add-in: Reese’s cups. You can’t go wrong with Reese’s, right?!

    That is so cool, that the PB is a good sub. And people complain about SCM? SERIOUSLY? Get a life. :)

    I had some older white coating wafers that weren’t going to melt well for coating so this was a perfect way to use them up. I didn’t have mini peanut butter cups, but I did have peanut butter & milk chocolate chips so that’s what I used on top! Delicious. The peanut butter was the ingredient needed for those older wafers! I’ll be doing the same with the chocolate wafers next. I had to stash the container away in the cupboard to keep me out of it today! I think I ate half of the batch yesterday.
