Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

I haven’t made fudge for ages, so I thought it was about time. And what better way to get back into making it than with this Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge! This fudge is a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate, as I adore that combination, and the whole thing is stuffed with Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Again, one of my most loved chocolate treats! It’s also super quick to make and you don’t have to boil it for ages, just a bit of heating up and mixing is involved so it’s really easy to prepare.

Jump straight to the recipe!

I started by putting the condensed milk, peanut butter and milk chocolate into a pan on a low heat.

I let it melt, then stirred it together. Then I took it off the heat and beat in the icing sugar.

I’d lined a 8″ square pan with baking paper, and I put half of the fudge mixture into the bottom and dotted mini peanut butter cups all over the top.

I put the rest of the fudge mixture on top and added more mini peanut butter cups, some of them cut in half, all over the top.

It went in the fridge to set, which took 3-4 hours. Using a sharp knife, I sliced it up into bite size pieces.

Wow this Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge was so tasty! It was far too easy to eat a few pieces of this yummy fudge. The texture is softer than the kind of fudge you boil, and it melts in your mouth. The peanut butter and chocolate combination make me swoon, it’s so good! It also got some rave reviews from my family and colleagues too, so this fudge was a winner all round.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Servings 36 pieces

Ingredients

  • 397 g Can of condensed milk
  • 350 g Milk chocolate
  • 250 g Reese's Peanut Butter
  • 130 g Icing sugar
  • 200 g Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Instructions

  1. Line a 8" square tin with greaseproof paper. I grease the tin first with a little butter to help the paper stick to it

  2. Put the condensed milk, peanut butter and chocolate in a pan and melt together on a low heat, stirring together as it melts

  3. Once it's fully melted and combined, take the pan off the heat and beat in the icing sugar

  4. Put half of the mixture into the tin and press some of the Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups all over it

  5. Put the rest of the fudge mixture over the top, then add more Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups all over the top, some cut in half

  6. Put in the fridge overnight, or for 3-4 hours to set

  7. Remove from the tin and slice into pieces. Store in the fridge for a firmer texture, or in a cool place for softer texture

  8. If you store the fudge in an airtight container it can be kept for 1 - 2 weeks, and up to 3 weeks in the fridge

  1. Reese Peanut butter cups in fudge – you made the perfect treat for me. I’ll have to make this for a niece – she loves chocolate and Reese Peanut Butter Cups are her favorite candy bar too. She’s got some of my genes 🙂

  2. Oh I’m sure we don’t have mini peanut butter cups here! 🙁 This looks like a great Valentines Day recipe which I need to find time to make! Thanks so much for sharing at Fiesta Friday!

  3. Whilst not a fan of peanut butter myself I have several friends who will love me if I make this for them. So for all those peanut butter fas out there Thank you for linking to #CookBlogShare

  4. I absolutely love the sound of these Kat! I mean PB & Chocolate – total winner every time! I love making fudge and usually boil it like crazy (and often get the splash marks to proove it!), so will be fascinated to try this much easier method 🙂
