For today’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Saturday I am sharing an easy recipe for fudge. Oddly enough I was not a big fan of fudge until I discovered the kind with peanut butter. Just proves how much I am NOT a true chocolate lover. I like it as a contributing flavor instead of the star.
In other news, we may be playing Iowa but I am attending to more important things today – being a proud bridesmaid in my friend Amber’s wedding! I am actually wearing a red/maroon dress which was completely unintentional (I actually was originally hoping to find an olive colored dress).

EASY PEANUT BUTTER AND DARK CHOCOLATE FUDGE
Makes 25 squares
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
2 Tbsp dark cocoa powder
3/4 cup peanut butter chips
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
- Line an 8×8-inch pan with wax paper.
- In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, combine 9 tablespoons (7 ounces) sweetened condensed milk with dark chocolate chips and cocoa powder. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Place in the fridge while you prepare the peanut butter layer.
- Whip out the safe bowl, and combine remaining sweetened condensed milk with peanut butter chips and peanut butter. Microwave for 1 minute, stir until mostly melted. Add vanilla and stir until smooth. Pour over chocolate layer and spread evenly. Sprinkle with peanuts and gently press in. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to harden. Cut and enjoy!
