  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup unsalted butter divided
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • cups granulated sugar
  • cup evaporated milk
  • 7 ounces marshmallow creme
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup good quality milk chocolate chips
  • 2 cups good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Using an electric mixer, whip the peanut butter, ¼ cup of the butter and the powdered sugar until smooth.
  2. Butter or line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper. Roll the peanut butter mixture into 12 balls and place them in rows in the prepared pan.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, evaporated milk, remaining ¼ cup of butter, marshmallow creme and salt. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes while stirring.

  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips (both milk and semi-sweet), along with the vanilla extract until melted and well combined.

  5. Pour the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter balls in the pan, pouring evenly to cover all the balls. Smooth the fudge with an offset spatula to cover the peanut butter balls. Let the fudge cool to set up. Cut into squares and serve. Store in an airtight container for two weeks or freeze to store longer.
