A quick and easy recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Fudge
Prep Time10 minutes
Resting Time1 hour
Course: Dessert
Keyword: chocolate, fudge, peanut butter


  • 20 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 ½ cups confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 1 ¼ cups creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Line an 8x8 pan with saran wrap so that it will be easy to lift the fudge out of the pan.
  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Bring to a rolling boil, then cook for exactly 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in peanut butter and mix to combine. Then add in vanilla extract.
  • Transfer the mixture to the bowl of your mixer. Add in sifted confectioners sugar, one cup at a time, mixing between adding more. After you’ve added all of the confectioners sugar, mix well. The mixture is going to be thick.
  • Press the mixture into the prepared dish. Sprinkle chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures over the fudge and gently press them down.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour, or until firm, then use the saran wrap as handles to lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into small squares.
