Those that know me know that procrastinate is my middle name.  I’ve honed this skill over many years and I can even procrastinate procrastinating.  Yes, it can be done, come over for an afternoon and watch as I procrastinate procrastinating the laundry.  Yet just thinking about chocolate and peanut butter makes we want to sprint to the kitchen and whip up a super yummy dessert.  Maybe if my husband covered the laundry in chocolate peanut butter fudge I would be more inclined to actually do it - maybe not, probably not, yeah, ain’t gonna happen.  This recipe actually took form because my kids (I include my husband in that term cause if you knew him you would agree) kept asking for more of the ‘yummy pretzel balls” aka Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites.  Unfortunately we were out of pretzels but I did have all the other ingredients.  I make a few tweaks to the recipe and voila - peanut butter fudge was born!  Now, I warn you, right now, that if you make this recipe and you take a bite it is REALLY REALLY REALLY hard to not eat the whole pan.  And if you can resist eating the whole pan, the leftovers will call to you at night, pleading with you to have just one more square.  And, in the morning when you open the fridge to have breakfast, they will tempt you into eating them - I speak from personal experience on this topic.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you….

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. In a small sauce pan on low heat, melt the chocolate chips.
  2. Add in the milk, vanilla, salt and honey.  Stir to combine.
  3. Remove the chocolate from the heat and stir in the peanut butter.
  4. Transfer the fudge to a 3 quart glass baking dish.  You’ll want to press the fudge into the pan with a spatula or the back of a spoon.
  5. Place the baking dish in the refrigerate for 2 hours.
  6. Remove from the fridge and cut the fudge into 28 small pieces.
  7. Serve immediately and ENJOY!

    I have been looking forward to trying this recipe ever since I saw your post. I made them earlier today for the first time and just had my first piece…yummy! I can definitely understand your comment about the fudge being very dangerous…I think I hear the fridge calling my name already (LOL)! Thank you so much for posting this wonderful recipe. I previously tried your recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups…they are yummy as well. I prefer the fudge recipe since it is easier to make and less time consuming. It is not that the chocolate peanut butter cups are difficult. They just take several steps and time to make. The fudge is simple to whip together and then it is just the 2 hour wait while the fudge sets up in the fridge! I will definitely be making this one of my regular recipes to make! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

      Hi Robin,

      This fudge is probably one of my favorite desserts - probably tied with the peanut butter cups. I love how easy the fudge is to make too! Definitely requires less effort than the peanut butter cups. Luckily my husband and kids helped with portion control since they ate almost all of it and I had only a few pieces! LOL!

    I just finished making this (it’s cooling in the fridge)… I couldn’t help but leave just a bit in the saucepan to “clean out”, lol! It is SO good! It’s just what I needed… that little chocolate fix, that isn’t going to undo any of my clean eating efforts! Thanks for sharing it!

      Hi Jaedyn,

      Totally addicting recipe isn’t it?! This and the Chocolate Covered Cherry Truffles are my favorite clean eating dessert. Whenever I need a chocolate fix these are my go to recipes.
