Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge adapted from Recipe Zaar 1¼ hours | 15 min prep

Peanut Butter Fudge Layer

  • 2/3 lb powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup butter
  1. Line an 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan with waxed paper. Make sure there is a bit of overlap so you can release the fudge from the pan later.

  3. Place butter and peanut butter in a 1 quart microwave safe bowl.
  4. Microwave for 2 minutes on high.
  5. Stir and microwave on high for 2 more minutes.
  6. Add pure vanilla extract and confectioners’ sugar to peanut butter mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  7. Press into the bottom of the lined pan.
  8. Place a second piece of waxed paper on the surface of the fudge and set aside.
  9. Chocolate Fudge Layer:.
  10. Sift confectioners’ sugar, cocoa and salt into a 1 quart microwave safe bowl. (I use the same bowl with the peanut butter remnants wiped out).
  11. Mix in milk and pure vanilla extract.
  12. Place butter on top of the mixture.
  13. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  14. Beat with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  15. Remove the waxed paper from the Peanut Butter Fudge layer and discard.
  16. Pour Chocolate Fudge over the Peanut Butter Fudge layer.
  17. Chill uncovered until firm (about 1 hour).
  18. Remove the fudge from the pan by pulling up on the waxed paper.
  19. Place on a flat surface and cut into 36 pieces.
  20. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
*this was rich and i loved the peanut butter layer especially. i would not make this the same way next time though. the chocolate layer never set up and was too gooey. next time i will make a glaze for the chocolate part. Glaze:
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter

if you try it this way, let me know! though i will definitely make this again soon!
