Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge is an easy chocolate fudge with a peanut butter swirl. Perfect for chocolate and peanut butter lovers.
Chocolate and Peanut Butter- The Ultimate Flavor Combination
Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite combination and this fudge really hits that flavor combination out of the park. There’s plenty of each flavor in peaceful harmony.
The peanut butter part is just straight up, unadulterated peanut butter. It gets swirled in with an easy and rich chocolate fudge. It’s a basic chocolate fudge made form sugar, evaporated milk, butter, marshmallow cream, vanilla, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
This fudge is ultra, ultra rich, just like fudge should be. It’s a simple, easy to follow recipe. No candy thermometer needed.
How To Make Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge
You’ll bring the sugar, evaporated milk, and butter to a boil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. While stirring, boil for 8 minutes. Don’t stop stirring or it’s likely to burn.
Add in the marshmallow cream, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract. Remove from heat and stir until smooth. Pour half the mixture into a greased 9×13-inch pan. Drop the peanut butter by spoonfuls on top and then pour the remaining fudge mixture over it. Swirl a knife back and forth through the mixture.
Refrigerate until firm.
Tip: You’ll want to store the fudge in the refrigerator because it tends to get a little soft if it sits out at room temperature.
Makes a huge amount and is perfect for holiday gift-giving.
