I’m not sure why it took me so long to make this incredible confection. Maybe it was because I knew the hubby wouldn’t touch it, and I, on the other hand, would have trouble keeping my distance. This chocolate peanut butter fudge surpassed my expectations and was totally irresistible.

 Tips for Making No Fail Fudge Recipe

This recipe is basically my tried and true  no-fail fudge with a twist. I made a half batch of the traditional version with marshmallow creme and chocolate chips, then topped that with a batch using a half cup peanut butter instead of chocolate.

  • I always use a candy thermometer to ensure that the sugar melts properly, although using marshmallow creme does prevent sugar from recrystallizing. The mixture should reach a temperature of 234 degrees.
  • If you’re successful making your fudge without a thermometer, just make sure your candy is at a rolling boil for 4 full minutes and you should be fine.

 

  • I like using an offset spatula to spread each layer evenly in the pan.
  • Lining the pan with non-stick foil allows you to remove the whole batch to a cutting board once cooled. It’s much easier to slice when out of the pan.

 

  • Store your fudge in an airtight tin to keep it fresh longer.
  • Fudge also freezes well.

Tom, Katie and I all nibbled away at this two toned treat, and I sent a bunch home with Tom for his roommates to inhale, instead of me. This layered chocolate peanut butter fudge may have to replace the peanut blossoms I make each year for the holidays. Try this Tiger Bark, too, if you love this combination. It’s amazing!
