Chocolate and peanut butter. Is there really a better combination of flavours? (If you’re more of a mint lover, you need to go try my Mint Chocolate Oreo Fudge!) Today, I bring you my Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, and the flavour combination could not be more delicious.

This fudge is made in the microwave, and only requires 5 simple ingredients – it’s such a quick and easy recipe!

For this Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, you’ll need:

  • chocolate, good quality (you can use milk chocolate, dark, or semi-sweet!)
  • smooth peanut butter
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • vanilla extract
  • salted peanuts

And there’s your 5 simple ingredients! I bet you have most of them already, right? 🙂

To make this fudge, simply add your chocolate and peanut butter to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. Stir in the condensed milk, vanilla, and peanuts. The mixture will become quite thick. Spread the fudge out into an 8×8-inch square baking pan, and refrigerate for at least 2 – 4 hours. Cut into squares, and share devour!
