Additions & Variations

Toppings: Top the chocolate fudge with chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, peanuts, or pecans instead of peanut butter chips.

Sea Salt: Add a sprinkle of sea salt over the top of the fudge to offset the sweetness.

Marbled: For a marbled look, divide the sweetened condensed milk into two bowls and melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips separately. Layer them in the baking dish then use a butter knife to swirl the layers together.

Half batch: Craving creamy peanut butter fudge but don’t want to make a whole batch? Use a 9 x 4 inch loaf pan and halve the recipe.

Vanilla extract: Try stirring 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract into the melted chocolate mixture for added flavor.
