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!

How to make Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Ingredients 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!

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

I really want to make these! Q: can I use heavy cream instead of sweetened condensed milk?

Hi Chaya! I'm afraid not, sorry. If needed, there are plenty of homemade sweetened condensed milk recipes on Google :)
