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.
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.
