Edible Gifts: Speedy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge

What a brilliant recipe and it seems easy enough to make.

The Burlesque Chef

Everyone loves a bit of Fudge, and it’s one of those sweets that can have endless flavours added.

I have a bit of an obsession with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, you know those tasty wee cups of goodness in the bright orange wrappers? As far as I know they are made by Hershey’s, the American candy company.

Lately I got my hands on the dark chocolate peanut butter cups, and they were beyond delicious!
This fudge is almost like a recreation of these bad boys, except in a smoother texture with a hint of Vanilla.

For this recipe I used Aldi smooth peanut butter which when made into the fudge, tastes very similar to the soft peanut butter in the Reese’s cup.

You can use milk or white chocolate if you wish.

    Ohhhh….yes….yes…yes…Reese’s peanut butter cups! You’re right and I agree, Val. Beyond delicious! 🙂 They still remain my all-time favourite chocolate treat. I’ve always been a peanut butter addict to begin with, with chocolate being next in line as far as favourite sweets go, so it’s a match made in sweet treat heaven.

    I’ve never tried Aldi’s peanut butter (it’s got to be better than Lidl’s, though – which is up there with the worst tasting peanut butter I’ve ever tasted), but will pick some up the next time I’m in the area in Sligo. My favourite peanut butter has always been Skippy’s (hard to get in Ireland, but I’m pretty sure Kate’s Kitchen in Sligo did stock it for a while) or, here in Ireland, Panda brand is pretty decent – do you believe me now when I say I’m a peanut butter fiend? 🙂

    The recipe does look pretty easy to follow, and it would definitely make a lovely foodie gift (Christmas time or any other time), Thanks for sharing this, Val. Yum! 🙂
