Ingredients

  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – Be sure you don’t accidently grab the evaporated milk as that will not work!
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips – I like semi-sweet but you could also use milk chocolate chips.
  • Creamy Peanut Butter – Be sure to use regular peanut butter and not the super-runny “natural” peanut butter as it won’t set up quite right
  • White Chocolate Bar – Ghirardelli makes a great white chocolate bar that I’d recommend! If you don’t have a white chocolate bar, almond bark will work.
  • Peanut Butter Cups – Use chopped up peanut butter cups, peanut butter M&M’s or Reeses Pieces!! Any of those will work great!!

How to Store Fudge

You can keep this fudge out on the counter at room-temperature, but keep it tightly covered. You can also freeze the fudge. Place the fudge in a resealable freezer bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze for up to three months.

    I am not a huge fudge fan but decided to make this recipe of fudge that Kelsey posted because every recipe I’ve tried of hers has been so good. This is by far the best fudge ever! So easy to make. I am now a fudge fan thanks to Kelsey. My family loves it too.
