Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge – can you stay indifferent to these delicious layers of peanut butter and chocolate? If you’re like me and you love anything with peanut butter and chocolate (check out this chocolate peanut butter cheesecake!) you’ll love this recipe. You will need just 10 minutes of kitchen work and after that, the enjoyment really begins!!!
Few days ago, I caught myself literally drooling on the beautiful photo with caramel fudge, so I decided to check all the fudge recipes that I had on my blog until now. Unbelievable. Only one fudge recipes in almost three years of working on a blog that has the name “Chocolate Desserts”. Really hard to understand taking into consideration that you need more time to find inspiration than you will spend preparing the fudge itself!
The mistake had to be corrected. Now! The only dilemma was for which fudge recipe to go, because there are thousands around. Well, OK, if the dilemma is big, there are two ingredients which guarantee a winning combination – chocolate and peanut butter. So, my final decision was: Layered Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.
As I said, when you know the ingredients, the rest takes up just about 10 minutes, sometimes less. Think about it! A minute or two for melting the chocolate in a microwave, a little sweetened condensed milk and peanuts. There, that’s the first layer! And after that a minute or two of melting white chocolate, a little peanut butter and you have the second layer! The only thing left is to chill two beautiful layers of Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge in the fridge and get ready to enjoy!
As for enjoyment, the only thing to take into account is… not to overdose! Pieces of Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge do look small, but have many calories, so my advice is to put a plate with just a few cubes in front of yourself. The rest is pure enjoyment.
