***Recipe by Beth***
There is this craving deep inside that calls out for Reese’s Cups; and what better way to get a one-two punch than to hide them in the bottom of your peanut butter fudge? Did I just go there? Yes… Yes, I did. Trust me, this is one that will leave you speechless. Peanut buttery and exquisitely smooth this fudge continues on with a hint of sweet chocolate and yet another burst of peanut butter flavor.
There are very few things that can satisfy that sweet tooth in one simple recipe, but this one just might take the cake! Just a few simple ingredients and you are on your way to biting in to this sugary confection! Now just to note, I use an 8 x 12 pan, but you can use other sizes. I also use Reese’s peanut butter chips, and I have not strayed from this brand to fill you on the taste of other brands.
- 3 Cups Granulated Sugar
- 1.5 Sticks real unsalted butter cut up
- 5 oz. Evaporated milk
- 2¼ cups Reese's peanut butter chips
- Reese's Cups of any size.
- Prepare your 8x12 pan by applying wax paper to the bottom and spraying the wax paper with no-stick cooking spray.
- Layer the bottom of the pan with your Reese's Cups.
- In a microwave safe mixing bowl add sugar, butter and evaporated milk.
- Put in microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir
- **Hint** Using an electric hand mixer is much easier since this mixture will be very hot.
- Put back in microwave for 4 minutes, remove and stir
- Put back in microwave for 1 minute, remove and stir.
- Add peanut butter chips and mix until all chips are melted.
- Pour smooth mixture over the Reese's Cups and place in the refrigerator until completely cooled and firm.
This is really the easiest and most delicious peanut butter fudge I have ever eaten. The addition of the Reese’s Cups to the bottom layer as a “crust…” is genius. Enjoy this with a glass of cold milk, yum!!!
