This fudge is a big deal around here.
Well, maybe I'm exaggerating in the back flips and raves.
But when Hubby reported even HE took a few pieces, and added, "Oh man that stuff is GOOD", I knew this fudge was the real deal.
Hubby only gives credit where credit is due.
I have no idea how I came up with this recipe. I remember slaving over the stove and wasting bags of chips trying to perfect it.
I hate wasting chocolate chips. Love those little guys.
I haven't made this fudge in four years. I was peeking through my recipe book for something fast and easy last night.
Sign me up for fast and easy anything. I live for fast and easy. Add in delicious and we are in business.
Homemade Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge
1 can sweetened condensed milk, separated
1 11 oz. bag milk chocolate chips
3/4 of 11 oz. bag white chocolate chips
1/4 generous cup peanut butter (very generous)
1 tsp vanilla, separated
Line 9x13 baking dish with wax paper.
Over low heat, in heavy saucepan, heat milk chocolate chips and 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk.
Pour into lined baking dish. You may not fill entire dish end to end, just spread evenly.
While milk chocolate fudge is setting, heat other 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter over low heat.
FYI, Mommyhood's version of a "generous" 1/4 cup peanut butter:
Grab dish with chocolate fudge from fridge. Pour white chocolate peanut butter mixture over top and spread evenly.
Refrigerate another 30-60 minutes until firm.
Store in refrigerator.
You will need to give some away to family, friends or neighbors to ensure you don't inhale all of the fudge in a few days time.
Your family, friends and acquaintances will thank you, and your butt will thank me for making "sharing" a requirement of the recipe.
A little bit of fudge is good. A lot of fudge is not good. And all of the fudge will make your butt gigantic.
Happy Hump Day! (That phrase is wrong on so many levels. I'm giggling like a school girl.)
