Fudge is summer to me. I grew up just across the bridge from the Seaside Heights boardwalk and I can’t even count the amount of fudge and taffy I’ve enjoyed on that boardwalk. Well, I haven’t made it to the boardwalk yet this summer, so I decided to bring the boardwalk to me. My husband’s favorite food combination in the whole world is chocolate and peanut butter, so it had to be chocolate peanut butter fudge that I made. He was pleasantly surprised by the treat when he got home!
After that, I just chilled it for 2 hours to let it really set and become easy to cut. Then I just cut it into 30 little squares so that it was bite sized. Oh my goodness, I was instantly transported back to summers on the boardwalk when I tried a square. It was thick and decadent and so fun. I hope you all enjoy it too for a great, no bake summer treat too! xoxo
This is such simple, 3 ingredient chocolate peanut butter fudge that comes together quickly! It's the perfect, no bake summer treat.
- 35 whole mini Reese's peanut butter cups unwrapped
- 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips 12 ounces
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounces
Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with foil and spray it well with unflavored cooking spray. Place 25 of the mini peanut butter cups in the bottom of the baking dish in rows of 5. Take the 10 remaining peanut butter cups and roughly chop them into little pieces. Set the roughly chopped cups aside. Then combine the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan and heat it up over medium heat. Let them both melt together while you stir with a heat proof spatula often until the mixture is shiny and smooth.
Work quickly to pour that chocolate mixture over the peanut butter cups in the baking dish and even it out with the spatula. Sprinkle the chopped peanut butter cups evenly on top and press them into the chocolate so that they stick. Set the dish in the refrigerator to chill and set for at least 2 hours. Then cut it into 30 squares by making 4 even cuts down one side and 5 cuts going the other way. Serve and enjoy! Keep any leftovers stored in a container in the refrigerator, it will keep for a couple of days.
