Buckeye Fudge

Buckeye Fudge is a creamy peanut butter fudge layer covered with a thick layer of chocolate fudge. Two amazing fudge flavors stacked on top of each other. Peanut butter and chocolate, “What’s not to love!” 

On Monday, I posted Peanut Butter Balls. I know they can be a bit time consuming rolling and dipping each little ball.  Now the fudge, it only takes 10-15 minutes to make the layers.   That is quite a bit of a time saver.

This is such a quick and simple recipe that’s oh so delicious. I hope you enjoy it. 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup 2 sticks plus 2T butter, divided
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 11 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk

Instructions

  1. Line a 11 x 7 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave safe bowl, add the peanut butter, 2 sticks of butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Microwave on HIGH in 35 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted and smooth. Remove from microwave.
  3. Pour the melted peanut butter mixture into the parchment lined pan. Spread out evenly with a spatula.
  4. Add the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and 2 tablespoons of butter to a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH in 35 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted and smooth. Remove from microwave.
  5. Pour the melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter layer and spread out evenly with a spatula.
  6. Chill for 4 hours to allow the fudge to set.

Recipe Notes

To keep your buckeye fudge the freshest, cover with wax paper, foil or plastic wrap and store in a cool, dry place. I prefer to store mine in the refrigerator, but you can keep it at room temperature, also. In addition, this fudge freezes really well (for up to 3 months).
