Easy Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

So Easy, You’ll Be Tempted To Make Fudge Too Often



While you can read the history of fudge—it wasn’t so easy to make in the beginning—today’s “secret” technique is to use sweetened, condensed milk. This is a chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe. For extra peanutty fudge and a crunchy texture, stir in chopped peanuts. For an all-peanut butter fudge, use peanut butter chips.


  • 1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips*
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup roasted or honey roasted peanuts, roughly chopped (optional)

*If you prefer a less sweet fudge, chop up bittersweet chocolate bars, 70% cacao or more.



  1. Lightly buttered an 8 x 8-inch pan (or sprayed with vegetable spray).
  2. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water. (You also can melt it in a microwave.)
  3. Immediately add the peanut butter and the sweetened condensed milk, stirring well until completely mixed. Stir in the chopped peanuts.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pan. Refrigerate to chill.
  5. When firm, cut into 1-inch pieces. Makes 64 pieces, or 1-1/4 pounds of fudge.
