A Southern Grace: Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge


Makes about 16 pieces

  • 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows*
Line an 8-inch square pan** with wax paper.
Combine the chocolate and peanut butter together in a large microwave safe bowl.
Heat at 30-second intervals, stirring well between each, until the mixture is smooth and combined.
Alternatively, you can heat the chocolate and peanut butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until smooth.
Stir in the vanilla extract and salt, then fold in marshmallows using a spatula.
Scoop into prepared pan, press evenly, and cover with wax paper.
Chill until firm, about 1 hour, then cut into squares.

*Add more if you want to cut the richness of these--I often add 6 cups!
**If you want a thinner bar, use a bigger dish, and if you like a thick slab of fudge, try a loaf pan!
