Reese’s Peanut Butter Fudge

I have been making it over and over again to give for gifts, and you better believe this is on my holiday gift giving list! Fudge for everyone.

Everyone I know loves peanut butter and chocolate, and I am pretty sure that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are America’s favorite candy.

That said, I have never met anyone that loves peanut butter and chocolate like my mother-in-law Gigi. She loves our peanut butter fluff decadent cream cheese dessert.

Gigi and Pop Pop are a huge part of our lives, and we spend a lot of time together. They are the only family we have here in Arizona, and I like to share homemade gifts to show my appreciation once in a while.

Well, last week Munchkin’s cousin came to visit from Denver, and she got to go hang out with her at Gigi and Pop Pop’s house for the entire day (can you say hallelujah!).

Naturally, I had to make a thank you treat, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were on the top of my mind. I thought that topping this simple peanut butter fudge with a truckload of peanut butter cups and milk chocolate would really put them over the top and believe you me; I was right!

They were absolutely incredible, and everyone went nuts over them. I have made these 4 times in the last week, and I have to say everyone has raved about them, and I know you will too.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Method Microwave
Servings 32


  • 16 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating, Almond Bark or white chocolate chips*
  • 2 cups super crunchy peanut butter, about 18 ounces
  • 8 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips, melted


  • Line an 8″x8″ baking pan with aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Melt candy coating in a heat safe bowl. Microwave at half power for 30 seconds at a time until melted and smooth.
  • Add peanut butter. Stir until completely combined and smooth.
  • Pour into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Gently press Reese’s into peanut butter fudge, so they are about 1/2 submerged in the fudge. This will help keep them from falling off when you cut the fudge.
  • Drizzle melted milk chocolate over top.
  • Freeze 30 minutes (or refrigerate 1 hour) or until fudge is firm. Lift the fudge out of the pan using the aluminum foil edges. Unwrap the foil. Check to make sure all the foil is off. Cut into bite size pieces.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!

  1. My family are chocolate peanut butter fiends. I made this recipe tonight -thank you!!! Its absolutely luscious! Delicious

  2. I made this using white chocolate chips and after 1.5 hours in the fridge the fudge is still very soft. I couldn't serve it like this. Will it harden eventually or did I do something wrong?

  3. 5 stars
    I love reese’s and I love fudge. How perfect is that combination! Everyone I took them to at work loved them! I’ll have to add this to my arsenal of recipes.

  4. Hi,
    I love both Reeses and peanut butter fudge, but I’m not a fan of crunchy peanut butter. Is it okay to use creamy?
    Many thanks!
