Peanut butter fudge with condensed milk is perfect for those who want to make a tasty dessert without the fuss. With only four ingredients and no baking required, this gluten-free fudge can be made in just five minutes.
⭐️Heat. Microwave the chocolate for 60 seconds then stir. Continue heating in 30-second increments until smooth. Do not overheat. Pour the chocolate mixture into the wax paper-lined 9x9-inch pan.
Combine the peanut butter with some condensed milk. Add the peanut butter to the sweetened condensed milk in the mixing bowl. Combine until smooth. Add on top of the chocolate fudge and gently spread. Don't let the peanut butter mixture sit, it will start to harden. Spread it right away.
1/3 cup peanut butter, 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk, divided
Chill. Place the peanut butter fudge into the refrigerator and let chill for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Serve. Lift wax paper from the pan or turn the pan upside down to remove the fudge onto a cutting board. Use a chef's knife or pizza cutter to slice.
Get started by lining a 9x9 inch pan with wax paper. You don't have to do this step, but it makes it really easy to remove and cut the fudge once it hardens.
It can be tricky to get the wax paper to stay in the pan. Crease around the bottom edges, folding the paper to help, then place 2 cans into the dish to weigh it down while you make the recipe.
This fudge is much easier to make and you have a lesser chance of it not working. Check out this post for tips on how to fix fudge that hasn't set, but by using sweetened condensed milk, you should not have this problem.
I use Jiffy or Skippy, but you could use natural peanut butter, allergy-free butter, or even Nutella for a different version.
Swap the vanilla extract with almond or simply leave it out if you don't have it on hand.
Do not overcook or the chocolate will seize up.
You can use chocolate chips for an even faster version or buy brick chocolate to save a little money. Carefully use the tip of a knife to break apart the brick.
