Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Hi!  I’m Melina, homeschooling mother of 11, Grandmelina to 2!

I’ve been making and selling fudge for years now, and chocolate peanut butter fudge is always a favourite.  I’ve decided today to share that recipe with you.  Just remember, if you see me set up somewhere with my fudge, come say thank you by buying a piece!  Let me know if you made the recipe and how it turned out.  Check out Melina’s Goodies and Gifts for all of our fudge varieties.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!  IF you have leftovers, wrap with plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag and pop it in the freezer.  Defrost as the urge to snack hits, or, if you’re in a generous mood, bring out when you are entertaining guests, and share.  Better yet, make when you are bringing somewhere to share, and eat in moderation.

Oh, yes – and it’s gluten free, as long as you make sure your individual ingredients are not contaminated with or contain gluten (check the peanut butter and the chocolate closely).

CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE

Makes a generous 9×13 pan.  You can half the recipe and use a 9×9 pan.

  • 1 lb. white chocolate wafers
  • 1 lb. milk chocolate wafers
  • 2 cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • oil spray or butter, for greasing tinfoil lined pan
  • tinfoil

1.   Line the inside of a 9×13 pan with tinfoil, allowing the tinfoil to overlap the edges of the pan.  Spray or butter the tinfoil to prevent the fudge from sticking.

2.  Melt 1 lb. white chocolate wafers in a medium sized glass mixing bowl (or large measuring cup) in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, making sure to scrape the bottom well, until completely melted.  Be careful not to scorch.  When the chocolate is melted, add 1/4 cup of peanut butter and stir until completely mixed.   Add 1 can of sweetened condensed milk and stir well (I like to use a spatula).  The fudge will thicken as you stir.  When completely mixed in, pour the peanut butter mixture into the greased 9×13 pan.  Spread evenly and allow to set in a cool (not cold) spot (about 2 hours).

3.  Melt 1 lb. milk chocolate wafers in a clean medium sized glass mixing bowl (or large measuring cup) in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, making sure to scrape the bottom well, until completely melted.  Be careful not to scorch.  When the chocolate is melted, add 1 can of sweetened condensed milk and stir well (I like to use a clean spatula). The fudge will thicken as you stir.  When completely mixed in, pour the chocolate mixture on top of the peanut butter layer in the 9×13 pan.  Spread evenly and allow to set in a cool (not cold) spot (about 2 hours).

4.  Remove the fudge from the pan and cut into small bite sized pieces to serve.  Alternately, cut into 12 bars (6 across, the cut in half).  Each bar should be wrapped in plastic wrap before being placed in a freezer bag and frozen.

5.  Enjoy!

p.s.  Don’t forget to lick the bowl and spoons.
