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?!
If you’re a peanut butter fan in the slightest, this recipe is totally for you! I was an addict after the first bite…
