Follow the easy steps below or watch the short video tutorial or do both. :)

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

You may print this recipe here if you like.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of half and half or whole milk (125mL)
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar (450g)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (5mL)
  • 3/4 cup of peanut butter (195)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (milk chocolate, semi-sweet) (150g)

Tools:

  • 7x11 pan or for thicker fudge use 8x8
  • parchment paper
  • saucepot
  • wooden spoon
  • spatula

Step 2: Sugar and Half and Half

In a saucepot add the sugar and half and half or milk if you are using milk instead. Then place it on a stovetop and bring the mixture to a boil over medium-low heat. This will dissolve the sugar and make sure our fudge isn't grainy in texture. Once it comes to a boil allow it to cook for two minutes while stirring. Then you can remove it from the heat.

Step 3: Vanilla and Peanut Butter Oh Yeah

Now add in the vanilla extract and peanut butter and stir until the peanut butter melts and the fudge becomes smooth.

Step 4: Love Me Some Chocolate

Now add parchment paper to a 7x11 inch pan or 8x8 inch pan if you want the fudge to be thicker. Then spread the peanut butter mixture into the pan and spread it out. Next, while it is still hot sprinkle on the chocolate chips. You can press the chocolate chips down a little bit with the spatula. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.

Step 5: Spread It and Chill

Now come back and spread the chocolate with a spatula or knife or something until it covers the top evenly. Then let it sit and cool completely. Once the pan has cooled you can put it in the fridge until it sets. It will take an hour or two to properly set.

Step 6: Cut and Serve!

Now just lift that parchment paper and pull the fudge out of the pan and cut it up into squares. Enjoy! :)

When we were first married, my wife used to make this for the relatives (along with pecan brittle and other candies) which we would put in decorative tins. She used confectioners sugar and hershey bars or milk chocolate morsels. Funny thing, when we could afford to just buy presents, I think everyone was a little let down.

Matt-- loved the comment about recipe giving us two servings LOL. Looks like a simple recipe...one way to melt the choc faster is just to put a sheet pan over the top to hold in the heat--it will melt in about 60 secs...

hahaha thanks! Yeah, that is a nice trick. :) I don't mind letting it sit for 5 minutes, I am not usually in a hurry when making it, haha.
