Reese’s Fudge

This Reese’s Fudge tastes just like the inside of Reese’s Pieces! It’s so easy to make and uses only 3 simple ingredients!

Have you ever played the “I’ve Never…” game?

I tried playing it with the fans on my Facebook page a week or two ago and  didn’t really get much of a response. But I think it’s a really fun game, so I thought we could try playing it here on the blog instead :)

All you do is finish the sentence, “I’ve never ___________.” And of course, the point is to try and think of something sort of outlandish that you’ve never done, something that people wouldn’t guess about you.

For example, on Facebook I told my fans that I’ve never had a serious boyfriend. You might not guess that about me since I’m married and have a child, but it’s the truth! My husband and I basically went from kinda-sorta-maybe-dating to engaged in a pretty wam-bam way. And he’s the only serious relationship I’ve ever been in (happily married for 7+ years by the way, although I still can’t believe our folks let us do it!).

Anyway. That’s my shocker one. But I’ll give you a few more to keep the ball rolling, and then you can leave your answers in the comments! Sound good? Ok, here we go:

I’ve never… been outside of the U.S. Not even Canada.

I’ve never… gone to a high school dance.

I’ve never… let my husband make my birthday cake.

I’ve never… quit a job. I’ve had to leave jobs due to moving or, you know, having a baby, but I’ve never really quit a job.

I’ve never… taken less than an hour to write a post. Even a silly one like this one.

I’ve never… made fudge that requires more than like… two ingredients.

Like that smooth segue into recipe talk? ;)

Seriously though. I love two-ingredient fudge. Call me lazy or cowardly or closed-minded– I wouldn’t mind a bit. This fudge is good, and I don’t see the point in messing with a system that works just fine! It’s simple, quick, and it works every time. You can mix up the chocolate you use and add different mix-ins or toppings to create a million different flavors, so you really never have to make the same fudge twice!

Although you might want to. Especially if you’re a peanut butter lover! Did you know Reese’s brand makes peanut butter chips? You can find them in the baking aisle, next to all the other chocolate chips. And if you can’t find the Reese’s brand, you’re okay to use any other kind of peanut butter chips. But I think the Reese’s chips make this fudge taste like the inside of Reese’s Pieces!!

Which reminds me– think Reese’s Pieces when you eat this fudge. Not Reese’s Cups. You Reese’s connoisseurs know what I’m talking about: there’s a big difference in peanut butter flavor. So if you’re expecting it to taste like a Reese’s Cup, you’d be in for a surprise. Although…

I’ve never… been disappointed in a Reese’s surprise!

 

Your turn! Tell me something you’ve NEVER done!

 

Reese’s Fudge

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Reese's peanut butter chips (this was 2 bags for me)
  • 14.5 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup milk chocolate morsels

Instructions

  1. Line an 8x8 (or 9x9) baking dish with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, stir the peanut butter chips and sweetened condensed milk over low heat until melted and smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Use a spatula to smooth it if needed.
  4. Microwave the chocolate morsels in a small bowl for 1 minute. Stir until melted and smooth (heat for an additional 30 seconds if needed). Pour melted chocolate over the fudge, and use a spatula to gently spread it.
  5. Let cool at room temperature for 4-5 hours before cutting into 1-inch pieces.
  6. Speed set the fudge in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes, but expect condensation if you try to serve it at room temperature.

    Besides never eating mustard (or a plethora of other things), I’ve never lived alone! :)

    I’ve never had this fudge, which needs to be remedied. SOON.

    What an amazing bunch of factoids! Wow…girl. That’s amazing about you and your hubs but if it works, it works!

    Ok, this is a big one (and I haven’t said anything on my actual blog because boyfriend doesn’t like me to advertise it) buuut…

    I’ve never had sex. Yepp. I’m a girl who lives with her boyfriend and I’m all virginal and stuff. WHA-BAM. Sorry probably made this game much more serious lol. It’s all good though, hopefully I’ll be married soon enough and then I can remedy my never :P

    Definitely adding this to my Christmas baking list!

    I’ve never….smoked. Anything. That’s probably not too exciting, but I feel like the majority of people I know have at least tried a cigarette or drugs. I thank my Asthma and incredible sense of smell for making it unappealing :)

    I love love love Reese’s Pieces. They get me into trouble. I’ve never been West of Colorado. I’ve never broken a bone or been injured beyond a sore tailbone when I fell on it playing soccer in middle school. I’ve never gotten tired of your posts or photos!

    I’ve never seen a recipe/photo of yours that hasn’t made me drool!

    I’ve never tried Sushi ;)

    it sounds yummy! maybe it’s just me, but it looks like you have 3 ingredients…

    • Ashton posted on November 19, 2013 at 1:39 pm (#)

      Yes, the chocolate is a topping on the 2-ingredient fudge :) The idea is that the fudge part is only 2 ingredients, but you can add whatever toppings or mix ins you want to create all sorts of variations!

  13. Renee @ Tortillas and Honey posted on November 19, 2013 at 2:18 pm (#)

    These look amazing and so simple! These look like a definite crowd pleaser. I plan on making these for my holiday dessert platters that I give out! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

    I need this fudge! I’ve never quit a job either!

  15. Renee @ Awesome on $20 posted on November 22, 2013 at 1:53 am (#)

    I’ve never played an organized sport, and I’ve never made two ingredient fudge. I can’t wait to try this.

  16. Jeannie posted on November 27, 2013 at 4:31 pm (#)

    I’ve…never made fudge before. I tried this one and unfortunately it never got melted and smooth, just turned into a big clump of peanut butter goo with grease puddles. Any idea what I did wrong? I followed the recipe to the letter. Thanks for any insight!

    • Ashton posted on December 17, 2013 at 11:09 pm (#)

      What brand of peanut butter chips did you use?

  17. Amy @ Chew Out Loud posted on December 11, 2013 at 4:04 pm (#)

    Ummm…YUM! Reeses Chips, I can eat you by the bagful! Sweetened condensed milk? I could go all in with a spoon. This peanutty chocolatey fudge has GOT to be great. :)

    I’ve never roller skated………..The fudge looks delish

    These Look To Die For Will Be Making This ASAP!!Thanks For Sharing!!

    I’ve never commented on your blog before! :) JK! Um…I’ve never….eaten sushi. I’m sure later something much less lame will come to me :)

    These look yummmmy! If you want a Reese’s cup flavor, mix peanut butter, butter, and powdered sugar to a thick paste. Top with melted chocolate. Eat with a spoon right out of the bowl. The butter definitely gives it a Reese’s cup flavor, but it’s not really fudge :)

    I’ve never been able to successfully make any candy that uses a candy thermometer. It never turns out like it’s supposed to… this includes peanut brittle, caramel, etc.

    • Ashton posted on December 17, 2013 at 9:31 pm (#)

      Neither have I! That’s why I always use this sort of recipe for fudge :)

    I’ve never played this game without alcohol.
    I’ve never played this game and ended up sober :)

    LOVE the recipe. Can’t wait to try it!

    How long would the fudge last? I want to make it for a fundraiser and would need to make it ahead of time.

  25. Kristin posted on November 25, 2014 at 10:49 pm (#)

    Tried this last night.  Fudge still hasn’t set.  I only used a 12 oz can of condensed milk along with 2 bags of pb chips (which was more than 3 cups) I felt it looked too liquidity but wasn’t sure what to do at that point.  Also had a difficult time spreading the chocolate on top.  Next time,  I would reverse it and put the chocolate in first then the pb mixture.  Putting in fridge overnight and hoping some magic happens bc the flavors are yummy.  

    • Ashton posted on November 26, 2014 at 11:24 am (#)

      To be completely honest… I have no idea what went wrong for you! By your account, your fudge should actually be the total opposite– too hard and dry! So…. this is a bit of a mystery! I’ve made this fudge a bunch with no trouble. Please let me know if you figure anything out, so I can let other readers know if they have this problem!

  26. Kristin posted on November 28, 2014 at 10:12 pm (#)

    Rookie mistake… I used evaporated milk instead of condensed!  Once I realized,  I tried again and it was a success! Delicious.  Thank you for sharing! 

    • Ashton posted on December 2, 2014 at 9:49 pm (#)

      Whew!!! I’m glad to hear it (not that the first batch was messed up, but that you had a success with the second)! I’m glad you liked it :)

    How would you store this?

    • Ashton posted on December 10, 2014 at 11:50 pm (#)

      Airtight container at room temp :) I usually just use a run-of-the-mill gladware container.

  29. Alicia posted on December 13, 2014 at 7:39 pm (#)

    about how many 1″ pieces of fudge will this recipe make? 

    • Ashton posted on December 18, 2014 at 10:05 pm (#)

      It’s somewhere between 24-36, depending on how big you’re cutting :)
