Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! It is pretty simple & produces perfectly wonderful fudge every time! It is sweet (but not too sweet), perfect texture, and wonderfully melts-in-your-mouth! Here is what you need:
- – Put milk chocolate & bittersweet chips and cocoa in bowl ready to dump into pan
- – Put marshmallow crème & vanilla opened with spoon for scooping next to stove
- – Grease (I use non-stick spray) an 8” by 8” square pan (I use glass)
- – Get a large pot on the stove, with a spoon and candy thermometer (I LOVE the one below)
In large pot over medium heat bring the sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and cream cheese to a boil. Cook over medium until it reaches 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
Quickly add Marshmallow crème & vanilla.
Pour 2 cups of hot mixture over peanut butter (or vanilla or mint) chips. Mix.
Dump in the milk chocolate chips, bittersweet chips, and cocoa into remaining hot mixture in pan. Mix. [Sorry no picture of this party – it happens too quickly]
Pour 1/2 of chocolate mixture in prepared pan & spread, pour 1/2 of peanut butter mixture, pour remaining chocolate mixture, top with remaining peanut butter mixture. Using a buttered knife zig zag through fudge to create swirl. Allow to cool & it is ready to eat within 30 minutes!
