Ingredients

  • 1 12 ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  • Prepare an 8x8 inch pan with aluminum foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • In a microwave safe container, combine the peanut butter and half of the sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on half power for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a second microwave safe container, combine the chocolate chips and the remaining sweetened condensed milk. Stir until smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan. Pour or scoop out the peanut butter mixture on top. Spread evenly. Take a knife, spray it with cooking spray, and then run it through the two layers to combine, creating swirls.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Cut the fudge into small squares to serve. Store in the refrigerator until ready to enjoy.

Notes

  • Fudge slices best with a sharp chef's knife.
  • Warm your knife first by running it under hot water. Dry the knife with a clean cloth and use it to slice through.
  • Cold fudge slices more easily. Do not let the it come to room temperature before cutting.
  • This recipe is ideal for the holidays! It's perfect to add to your dessert table at home or even nicer to make as gifts for teachers, friends, and family.
  • It should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To ensure the fudge doesn't stick to each other, use a piece of wax or parchment paper to separate each piece. Fudge that is stored in the refrigerator will last between 2 to 3 weeks when its kept in an air-tight container.
  • I used smooth peanut butter, but you could also use a chunky version to add texture.
  • Dark chocolate would be wonderful, too! Use any type of chocolate chips that you’d like.
