National Fudge Day

As promised in the podcast, here's the specific recipe for chocolate peanut butter fudge!  I hope you enjoy it.  Well, no, I know you'll enjoy it.  Try not to eat it all in one sitting, but rest assured -- zero judgment if you do.


yes, chocolate peanut butter fudge, just 3 ingredients!  semi sweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and sweetened condensed milk.  literally, that's it.  my mom used to make these for me for last minute bake sale or birthday treats.  it'll probably take you longer to read the recipe than to actually make the fudge.


step 1: line a pan with foil.  i believe mine was 8 by 8 but size really depends on how thick you want it.  bigger pan = thinner fudge.

step 2: measure out half of a 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk (so 7 oz.) into a microwave safe glass.  add 1 and 1/2 cups of peanut butter chips.  melt in the microwave and stir together.  i stir after 1 minute and usually do another 30 seconds.

step 3: spoon into the foil lined pan and smooth out so it reaches the corners and just generally makes a nice flat shape.  it's not going to spread, so the edges you make will look exactly the same when it's done.

step 4: repeat with the rest of the sweetened condensed milk and 1 and 1/2 half cups of chocolate chips.  i like semi-sweet but it works with any sort of chips (including white chocolate or mint chips.)

step 5: spread the melted chocolate layer on top of the peanut butter layer.  try to nicely smooth out the top or make a design because, again, it does not settle or spread - how you place it is how it's going to stay.


place the pan in the fridge to cool and set.  this happens pretty quick, but i left it about 2 hours.  you can leave it shorter or longer, doesn't matter as long as it's solid and not warm when you remove it.

lift the fudge and foil out of the pan.  flip it upside on a cutting board and peel away the foil (should come away easily.  to ensure that it does, carefully measure that 7 oz when you do the peanut butter layer.  too much sweetened condensed milk makes the peanut butter layer sticky, so be exact!)

flip it right side up and starting chopping!  you could use cookie cutters for shapes too, but i just did little squares.


easy and adorable.  and delicious.  enjoy!
