Reese’s Fudge

I make a few sacrifices when I move to North Carolina for the summer.  A nice oven is one of them.  I didn’t know that ovens still had knobs on them to set the oven temperature to.   I tried to use it a few times but it always over cooked the food.   I would even try lowering the temperatures.  Making a yummy baked dessert or a batch of cookies….  forget about it.

I wanted to make a yummy treat for our friends before we left North Carolina.  I have been wanting to make this Reese’s Fudge for a long time.  Why you ask??  Because I am obsessed with Reese’s and also because this is the easiest recipe ever.  And no baking is required.  The Reese’s peanut butter cups are right inside the fudge!  These turned out so much better than expected and I couldn’t stop eating it.  Everyone that I gave the fudge to was obsessed with it as well.  Make this fudge.  It is the bomb!

Now we are back in Utah and I was so happy to have both of my ovens back!  I might have even kissed them I was so happy to see them.  I can’t wait to bake a batch of fresh cookies. 🙂

    What kind of chocolate chips did you use? Semi-sweet, milk, bittersweet? Looks delish!

  6. What are peanut butter cups?
    I’m in Australia so not Too sure?

  7. The recipe calls for 24 Reese’s cups, 16 lined on the bottom and 6 chopped up for the top. I suppose the remaining 2 cups are due to the fact that you cannot make this without eating at least 2 Reese’s cups during the process! 🙂

  8. Does this fudge have to be refrigerated after it is set…wondering if I could make it for a fudge sale?

  9. Has anyone made these in a 9×13 pan? How much more of each ingredient was or would be needed?

  10. 24 regular size Reese Cups?!? Whoa!! That’s A LOT!!
    Expensive for one pan…but it will be worth making…at least once!!

  11. SMOKEY MICHEL says:

    Sub. Kahlua for the Cond milk !!! OUTSTANDING !!!

  12. This looks delish and I will be making it tonight. Just a quick note, I think there’s a small mis-calculation on the PB cups as 16 plus 6 is not 24….recipe may need to be edited 🙂

  13. Want to try the Reese’s peanut butter fudge

  14. I made this using the white chocolate chips and the white chocolate Reese cups. I’m not even a fan of white chocolate (made it as a gift for a friend) but have to say this was delightful and hard not to keep eating!

  15. try breaking up twix for on top. the two together are awesome.

  16. I tried to make this but it just did not set – even after 4 days trying to ‘air’ dry it it is still googy and soft. Did I not melt it to a high enough heat or something ?

  17. Jackie Heaton says:

    Well this is great recipe, very simple, I use stove top to melt as don’t trust self
    on rem to stir freq enough so on top can stay right on it.
    They freeze great and I give out for Christmas gifts for the people who you need something special for.
    Cut befor freezing so can balance amount, not right hru but have a guide line to go by so equal size.
    Place in zip lock bag, then xmas box, with bow and off we go.
    They freeze well, All friends that receive would be happy all year round. lol Enjoy we do. T/Y for the share.
