Chocolate-Peanut Butter Fudge

Total Time:
1 hr 5 min
1 hr
5 min

64 pieces


Line an 8-inch-square baking pan with foil, pressing it into the corners and up the sides; leave an overhang on 2 sides. Brush the foil with butter.

Combine 3/4 cup condensed milk, the chocolate chips and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Combine the remaining condensed milk, the peanut butter chips and a pinch of salt in a separate saucepan. Put both pans over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chips are melted and smooth.

Spoon the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan, leaving spaces between the spoonfuls. Spoon the peanut butter mixture into the gaps. Brush an 8-inch square of parchment paper with butter and lay it directly on top of the fudge; press to flatten evenly and fill any gaps. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Lift the foil to remove the fudge from the pan and cut into 1-inch squares. Store up to 1 week in an airtight container.

    Very quick easy compared to most Fudge Recipes. Not as smooth as I would have liked but a little more milk next time will solve that. Taste was great . Awesome recipe in a hurry.
    alright if you like a semi solid really rich pudding.been in the fridge for 24 hr still a lot more like pudding then fudge.
    This is a great recipe!!! It was smooth and creamy and held its form. I reccomend this recipe to anyone!!!
    Clumpy, Clumpy, Clumpy! The mixture just did not melt properly. I'm not a novice baker, I followed the recipe exactly...cooked on low to ensure the chips didn't overcook, etc. The squares separated, stuck and crumbled. Like already stated, the peanut butter mixture did not come near as smooth as the chocolate mixture did and the person who said "waste of ingredients" is correct.
    Very easy and delicious recipe. I melted the peanut butter and chocolate together in one big batch and it worked great. It took only 5 minutes to prepare (plus 3 hours to harden which is less time than other recipes I have tried in the past. Other recipes I had tried either never fully hardened or the large amount of sugar made it gritty. The finished fudge in this recipe is rich, smooth and creamy. The family loved it and I will definitely make again.
    Made this tonight for desert. Very easy to make, simple ingredients, was very good. I'll make it again~! Family loved it!
    Wasted ingredients, in my opinion. The chip and condensed milk mixture never got creamy--just dry and clumpy. I think I will stick with my old fudge recipe.
    Very tastey and very easy to make. The peanut butter isn't needed to make these taste great. I actually think they taste better without it.
    This was a very easy recipe to make. Rich, yes, but I just cut mine into smaller squares. My chocolate was easier to spread than the peanut butter. Not sure if I should have used more condensed milk in the PB mixture, but I thought it came out well with the PB being a little less "smooth" than the chocolate.
    I think it is really rich it taste however the way it is assembled did not come out as nice as the picture. I felt that my mixture of the chocolate, peanut butter chips and condensed milk was too thick and hard to spread. I might try again. I am a huge fan of The Food network recipes so I won't give up just yet....
