Yum-Yum! Aren’t you glad there is a day devoted to fudge! I love fudge. And so with that in mind I’ll share my 2 favorite recipes for it. The first is from Hershey’s Kitchen. I know I’ve shared this one in the past but who wants to go back looking for it, lol.
Creamy Double Decker Fudge
- 1 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk, divided
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
- 1 cup Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line an 8-inch square pan with foil; set aside. In small microwave-safe bowl, place peanut butter chips and 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk. Microwave at high 1to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; spread evenly into prepared pan. In small microwave-safe bowl, place remaining sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips; repeat above microwave procedure. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; spread evenly over peanut butter layer. Cover; refrigerate until firm. Cut into 1 inch squares. Store in tightly covered container in refrigerator.
The second I got from The Happy Housewife. Supper simple and supper good.
Grandma Kathy’s Microwave “Never Fail” Fudge
