How to make chocolate peanut butter fudge:

Process of making fudge from mixing in bowl, cooking in microwave and pouring into pan.

  • Once the fudge has set, remove from the pan and cut into small bite size pieces.

How to store fudge:

Place inside an airtight container in the fridge. I also like to use parchment paper in between the fudge to prevent it from sticking.

It will keep up to a week in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve this, allow the fudge to come to room temperature before eating.

Can you freeze fudge?

Fudge can easily be frozen if you need to make this in advance. I love doing this for holidays, parties and more.

Just put the fudge inside an airtight container and put in the freezer. I also like to use the wax paper in between the layers when freezing.

You can freeze fudge up to 3 months in the freezer. It is best to let this thaw overnight in the fridge when ready to serve.

I often make extra to have some for the freezer. It is perfect when you need a last minute gift.

It is also really nice when you want a little something sweet. You can grab a few squares from the freezer.

Variation ideas:

  • Peanut butter can be substituted with another type of nut butter. You can also use natural peanut butter in this recipe.
  • Use crunch peanut butter instead of creamy for a different texture in the fudge. It will not be as smooth but gives it a new flavor in the peanut butter layer.
  • Substitute vanilla frosting for the chocolate frosting to make Peanut Butter fudge. This tastes so amazing.
  • Add nuts to the fudge mixture either on top or mixed in. Walnuts or pecans would be delicious in this recipe.

    If your family is divided, just sprinkle them on top and only do half. Everyone will be happy and you easily have two different types of fudge to choose form.
  • Mix in ½ cups candy or add-ins to change the flavor. Mini M&M’s, reece’s pieces, mini marshmallows and peanut butter chips would all be delicious.
  • You can add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract to the fudge if you prefer.
  • Sprinkle the top of the fudge with sprinkles, nuts or candy. This is another option if you would rather have this on top instead of mixed in. Try different color sprinkles for holidays, birthday parties and special occasions during the year.
  • Use cookie cutters to cut the fudge into shapes instead of slicing into bars. You can do hearts, stars, Christmas trees or anything you like.

    This is really fun for holidays or birthday parties. The kids will love it in different shapes.

Fudge is a nice gift.

Package this for gift giving for a treat everyone will enjoy. I like to put the slices of fudge in mini cupcake liners.

Then place inside a box or tin or bag for a gift. Everyone loves fudge. It is the perfect gift for someone that has it all.

You can’t go wrong with this decadent fudge. It is also a great party favor idea.

Instead of buying filler items no one will use, make fudge instead. Everyone will love it.

More tips:

  • If you prefer fudge to be harder, put in the freezer for 30 minutes. This should help it to harden.
  • Fudge is best enjoyed at room temperature. I would suggest taking it out of the fridge a few minutes before serving.
  • Don’t try to cut the fudge into squares too early. It needs time to set or it will be hard to cut and messy.
  • Try using a plastic knife to cut the fudge into squares. It will give you nice clean lines. Make sure to wipe the knife with a napkin if any residue remains so all the slices will be clean.
  • You can cut fudge into any size you prefer. It is so sweet and rich so a little goes a long way. I like to cut the fudge into very small pieces.

  1. Thanks for the recipe, Carrie. I just have one question. If the peanut butter is combined with the chocolate, why doesn’t it make the fudge look lighter in color. It’s not that important, just wondering. Thanks.

    1. It is just the peanut butter/ chocolate ratio. If there was more peanut butter, it would lightening it up more.
