Step 1: Start with the peanut butter fudge layer

In a microwave safe bowl, melt together the butter and peanut butter. Then stir in the vanilla. You’ll then add the powdered sugar one cup at a time. The mixture will be very thick. Press into the bottom of a lined 9×9″ square pan.

Pan I’m using: OXO Good Grips Non-Stick Pro Cake Pan Square 9 x 9 Inch (Amazon Affiliate Link): A 9×9″ square pan is the perfect size for this fudge recipe! A must-have tool for any kitchen.

Pro tip: To secure the parchment paper, I like to use binder clips on the sides of the pan. This helps keep the paper in place and not slide around when you’re trying to add the fudge layers.

Step 2: Melt together the chocolate fudge layer

In another microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter. Melt in increments, stirring frequently. Don’t over cook – your chocolate will become dry and lumpy.

The microwave-safe bowls I use: 3-Piece Pyrex Glass Mixing Bowl Set (Amazon Affiliate Link): I use these glass mixing bowls any time I need to melt something in the microwave. It’s also my go-to tool for mixing any type of batter, like pancakes or cakes!

Prevent overcooking by stirring the fudge well and microwaving in short increments. When the fudge looks smooth and glossy, and the chocolate chips have nearly melted completely, you’ll know its ready to spread.

Step 3: Spread the chocolate fudge over the top of the peanut butter layer

Using a frosting spatula (see the one I use below) or a rubber scraper, spread the chocolate fudge evenly over the top of the peanut butter fudge layer. Make sure to go all the way to the parchment paper.

The icing knife I’m using: OXO Good Grips Small Offset Icing Knife (Amazon Affiliate Link): This is a really handy tool for way more than just frosting. I often time use it anytime I need to spread cream cheese, dips and spreads. It’s also perfect for this fudge recipe!

Step 4: Refrigerate or Freeze to get the fudge to set

Once both chocolate and peanut butter fudge layers are in place, the fudge is ready to be refrigerated. You’ll want to chill the fudge for at least 2 hours. You can also freeze for about 1 hour. This will help the fudge harden to cut into squares. Don’t skip this step. The fudge will need to be adequately set in order to cut into squares.

Once your fudge is set, it’s ready to cut into squares. The fudge will easily come out of the pan – simply lift out by the edges of the parchment paper. Remove the paper, and place on a cutting board. Slice with a large, sharp knife. This peanut butter fudge recipe makes quite a large quantity. You’ll get at least 48 – 1″ squares, if not more.
