Chocolate-Peanut Butter Fudge

Let’s face it. Fudge can be tricky. If it’s a humid day it can go south. If you boil it too long or not long enough you’re in trouble. So this super easy fudge using Eagle Brand condensed milk is a breath of fresh air.

There’s no boiling…in fact all of it is done in the microwave. I seriously had it done in under ten minutes.

You can add peanuts to the peanut butter layer or leave it plain. I actually made two batches, one with and one without. It’s personal preference if you like a little nut or not. Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe!! It looks very doable. My husband LOVES fudge and I hardly ever make it because the recipes I’ve found are intimidating. He’ll be so excited when I surprise him with this. ๐Ÿ™‚ Whitney

  2. Fudge is so dangerous for me. I end up eating the whole tray. Once I make it out of the house it must go. It is perfect for gifts though. Love this easy peasy recipe.

  3. Love this fudge! PB and chocolate goodness. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. SO YUMMY!!!

  5. This reminds me of my Mom’s fudge recipe. It’s delicious and couldn’t be any easier ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Could milk chocolate chips be used or do they have to be semi sweet?

  7. Sherri L. Hodges says:

    Looking forward to trying this fudge recipe. My husband has been begging for peanut butter fudge and loves his chocolate too so looking forward to surprising him with a combo!!!

  8. Oh wow!! These look so good! I am definitely going to try these out for Christmas! Thanks:)

  9. Since you need to chill to ‘harden’ it up, does this mean it needs to be stored in the fridge as well?

  10. This fudge is awesome!!

  11. Hi there,

    This recipe sounded so easy I thought even I might be able to make it! But sadly, it didn’t turn out for me ๐Ÿ™ The peanut butter layer set fine, but the chocolate layer never did. Even after being refrigerated overnight, the chocolate was still very soft and messy! Obviously I messed up somehow ๐Ÿ™ Maybe I used too much sweetened condensed milk.
    I couldn’t find a 14 oz can – I was only able to find 300ml cans (appoximately 1 cup, or 8oz). So after using 4oz from one can for the peanut butter layer, I was left with 4oz. I combined that with 6oz from a second can. Maybe my math was wrong and used too much milk.

    I had the same problem Rob had last year. The chocolate layer never set. I measured out the 14oz in a measuring cup. I followed it specifically. My family doesn’t seem to care, they’re eating it anyways, but I had wanted to give it out as gifts. I’ll have to see if I can find a recipe that works.
