This recipe for chocolate and peanut butter fudge is so easy to make, and it taste amazing.
I found this recipe in a magazine years ago. It is originally called Ribbon Fantasy Fudge, and I just noticed that it is dated 1981! I have tried many recipes for fudge, but this one seems to be every one’s favorite which is good because it is so dang easy.
This recipe has very few ingredients, and it does not take long at all to throw it together. It seems to be a lot easier if you measure out your ingredients first when making candy.
Spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with cooking spray. In a medium size saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons of butter, 1/3 cup of evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed milk), and 1 1/2 cups of sugar. I let the butter melt before I add the milk and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for 5 more minutes, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. You want to make sure the sugar dissolves completely.
Remove from heat. Stir in 6 ounces of chocolate chips, 1/2 jar of marshmallow creme, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Stir until it is blended well. You have to work fast here because it will start getting hard when it starts cooling.
Pour in a baking dish. I find that sometimes it is a little hard to spread so I pour it in the pan and press down on the fudge with a wooden spoon or spatula until it is spreads evenly.
Repeat the same thing except use peanut butter in place of the chocolate chips.
Pour the peanut butter fudge over the chocolate fudge.
If you lick the spoon while it is still warm, it will be a little grainy, but don’t panic because it will be fine after it cools. This recipe for chocolate peanut butter fudge is one of my favorite treats to serve at a party.
