Reese’s Fudge Recipe
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!
- 3 cups Reese's peanut butter chips (this was 2 bags for me)
- 14.5 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup milk chocolate morsels
- Line an 8x8 (or 9x9) baking dish with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.
- In a small saucepan, stir the peanut butter chips and sweetened condensed milk over low heat until melted and smooth.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Use a spatula to smooth it if needed.
- 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.
- Let cool at room temperature for 4-5 hours before cutting into 1-inch pieces.
- 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!
