Many fudge recipes call for a long list of ingredients, but this chocolate peanut butter fudge only requires three. So, it’s both simple and cheap to make. This is my go-to fudge for holidays, gifts and those can’t-be-ignored chocolate cravings. Just keep three ingredients in your pantry, and it’s sure to become your go-to fudge too.

Three-Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Ingredients for Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Ingredients:

  • (1) 11.5 oz. bag of chocolate chips
  • (1) 10-oz. bag of peanut butter baking chips (or 1 cup of peanut butter)
  • (1) 14-oz. can of sweetened condensed milk

Recipe Variations and Substitutions

  • I prefer to use peanut butter chips in my fudge, but a cup of peanut butter will also work. It just makes a slightly softer fudge.
  • If you don’t have any sweetened condensed milk on hand, don’t let that stop you from making fudge. It’s easy to make your own. Here’s my recipe.
  • I like to melt my ingredients on the stove, but a microwave works just as well. Do whichever works best for you.

What You Do:

Parchment Paper-Lined Pan

Line an 8″ X 8″ baking dish with parchment paper or foil.

Combine Peanut Butter Chips and Sweetened Condensed Milk

Combine the peanut butter chips with half the can of sweetened condensed milk.

Melted Peanut Butter Chips

Then, melt the two ingredients in a double boiler, or microwave. This will give you a thick, but spreadable mixture.

Peanut Butter Fudge Layer

Spread the peanut butter fudge in your prepared pan, in an even layer. Then, cover the pan, and stick it in the fridge for an hour, so the fudge hardens.

Combine Chocolate Chips and Sweetened Condensed Milk

Once the peanut butter fudge has set up, combine the chocolate chips with the other half of the can of sweetened condensed milk …

Melted Chocolate for Fudge

and melt them in a double boiler, or microwave.

Spread Chocolate Fudge Over Peanut Butter Fudge

Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter fudge, to create the second layer of your fudge. Then, cover the pan, and return it to the fridge for another hour.

Remove Fudge From Pan

When the fudge has fully set up, carefully lift it out of the pan by the parchment paper or foil …

Cut the Fudge Into Slices

and cut it into squares. I cut this batch into 16 squares, but 32 squares is probably a better serving size.

Cut Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Store the fudge at room temperature, assuming it lasts long enough to store.

  • If you don’t have sweetened condensed milk. Just whip up a quick batch. Here’s my recipe.
