Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

 So...basically this is just the recipe for simple 3-ingredient fudge made with a layer of milk chocolate fudge and then a layer of peanut butter fudge with miniature Reece's Peanut Butter cups pressed into the fudge.

Simple, rich, and delicious.
Reece's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

1 12 oz bag milk chocolate chips
1 10 oz bag peanut butter chips
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
6 Tablespoons butter(divided)
Reece's Peanut Butter Cups(I think I used 20-30...can't remember now)

1st layer:  Combine milk chocolate chips, 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 4 T butter in a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water, stir until melted and smooth. Line a greased 8 x 11.5 inch baking dish with plastic wrap.  Pour fudge into baking dish.  Cool until room temp, place in the refrigerator while you make make the peanut butter fudge. 

2nd layer:  Combine peanut butter chips, 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 2 T butter in a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water, stir until melted and smooth.  Pour onto the milk chocolate fudge layer and press Reece's Peanut Butter Cups into the fudge.  I left a small space between them for a 'cutting line'.  Let cool until room temperature.  Refrigerate overnight or until set.  Remove from refrigerator and cut into squares(1 peanut butter cup per square) and serve.  Keep refrigerated or they will get too soft.  The milk chocolate doesn't set up as solid as semi-sweet chocolate.

**to remove from baking dish, lift the plastic wrap from the sides and it should come right out.
Pin It!


  1. sounds great ..trying this real soon!

  2. What size should the cans of sweetened condensed milk be?

  3. Easy to make. Waiting for fudge to set. Looks very good.

  4. I made the fudge. It wasn't really firm. Kind of soft.

    Didn't have much of a Peanut Butter taste. Really rich, but good. I thought I didn't melt it long enough.

  5. I followed this recipe without any changes. The fudge was to soft to even cut.

  6. This fudge looks and taste great! I used half semi-sweet/milk chocolate chips to help with the softness and put it in the freezer for 30 min. before cutting. Also, run your knife under hot water, really helps cut through smoothly. I added 1 tb of peanut butter to give the fudge a more peanut buttery taste. Rave reviews from all tasters!
