Today is National Fudge Day

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.

  1. OMGosh! Those both sound so good. I don’t have pb chips or I would try both of them today! I’ll have to settle for the second one only.

    It’s good to hear from you. You’ve been missed.
