Peanut butter and Chocolate Fudge

I'm going to need to up my workout routine.



This fudge is crazy good.  I want to eat the entire pan.


I've had the recipe for this fudge in my pile for at least a year, I don't know why it took so long to make!  In comparison to all the other fudge recipes I've made (orange creamsicleChocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge) this one is super easy.


The sweetened condensed milk brings the fudge together very quickly and gives it a creamy texture.  Plus, it's peanut butter and chocolate.  The most amazing flavor combination ever, in my opinion.

Easy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge
Adapted from Cooking Light Magazine (maybe?)

1 (14-oz) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3/4 cup peanut butter chips (I used Reese's brand)
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/4 cup dry-roasted peanuts, chopped

Line an 8-inch pan with wax paper.

Combine 9 tablespoons (7 ounces) sweetened condensed milk with chocolate chips and cocoa powder.  Microwave on high for 1 minute.  Stir until the chocolate chips are melted and the mixture is smooth.  Pour into the prepared pan and smooth out.  Place in the fridge while you prepare the peanut butter layer.

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 smooth out.  Sprinkle with peanuts and gently press in.  Place in the fridge for 2 hours to harden.
