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. 🙂

  1. I only had 2 cups of milk chocolate chips so I added 1 cup of semi sweet. I’m sure they’ll be great.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 ?

  4. 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!

  5. 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 🙂

  6. 24 regular size Reese Cups?!? Whoa!! That’s A LOT!!
    Expensive for one pan…but it will be worth making…at least once!!

      1. Question- are we talking about the “mini” Reese’s pb cups or the regular size Reese’s cups? I mean the 2 to a packet cups that you buy in the check out lane ?

  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! 🙂

    1. Reeses peanut butter cups are a candy. They come in the small paper cups like you use for muffins. Hastily they are hard chocolate with a peanut butter center. You can order them on Amazon.

  8. Went in search for my favorite food (Sesame Chicken)
    Your web site come up.
    Found what I wanted, along with 3 other recipes I knew I would use.
    I.m yours for keeps.
