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


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


  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.

Don’t miss a bite!

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

    And this fudge. I’ve made similar using PB and SCMilk but never quite like this. I need to make it. Like…now! 🙂 Pinned!

  2. Bahahaa love the segue!!! This fudge looks amazinggggggggg!!!! LOVE it!

    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 😛

    I’ve also never made fudge! need to remedy this!

  3. 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 🙂

  4. 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!

    • 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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 🙂

  7. 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.

  8. I’ve flown across the world but, have never skydived. I have swam in both the Atlantic and Pacific but, have never surfed.I have driven on both sides of the road but,have never learned to drive a stick.

  9. 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.  

    • 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!

  10. 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!
