Fudge is an understated and timeless dessert that has been loved by everyone in the holiday season. And it can be prepared using so many different ingredients like dark and white chocolate, jam, and different kinds of butter, fruit creams, and so on.
A unique combination for making fudges is the assimilation of peanut butter and white chocolate. Peanut butter is a classic favorite (unless you’re allergic to it). The taste of white chocolate makes the dessert incredible when paired with peanut butter.
So, this great peanut butter & white chocolate fudge recipe will be easy to make and taste incredible too!
To make this fudge, you need the following ingredients-
White Chocolate Top:
- Saucepan preferably medium-sized
- 6 oz white chocolate
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3/8 cup heavy whipping cream/you can also use fresh cold cream, but in that case, you need to whisk it to get a heavier texture
- 4-5 TBS unsalted butter
- Pinch of salt; this is a great idea to include in a fudge inspired by a delicious recipe of white chocolate caramel fudge.
Peanut Butter Fudge:
- 1 large pot
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 5 cups of sugar
- 1 TBS vanilla extract
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (you can add more based on your preference, but 1 cup is quite enough)
To make this creamy fudge, you need to make both the fudge and white chocolate side by side on your stove to save time. You can also use another partner to help you with one of the items.
Add the Ingredients
To start the process of your fudge, add the sugar, evaporated milk, and water to the respective pot and stir until it boils. It will take around 2-3 minutes to bring it to a boil with continuous stirring.
Melt the White Chocolate
In the saucepan, melt the white chocolate in low flame so that it doesn’t get burnt. When the chocolate has melted, add the whipping cream, sugar, butter, and a pinch of salt and stir for around 5 minutes. Do the entire process under low flame.
Remove Fudge Mix and Chocolate from the Heat
When both the fudge mix and the white chocolate top are ready, remove them from the heat. Let them cool aside for a few minutes and then add the peanut butter and vanilla extract to the fudge mix pot.
Take a 9×9 or a 9×13 casserole dish and line them with parchment paper brushing some butter at the base. Add the peanut butter fudge mix; layer it with the melted white chocolate cream top, and use a spatula to create a ripple effect.
Shake the dish so that the batter settles down. You can also add candy toppings, sprinkles, or Reese’s pieces to decorate on top. After refrigerating for over an hour, take the dish out and slice them in your preferable sizes.
Bringing it to an end, it is evident that this peanut butter & white chocolate fudge recipe is used to make and will taste amazing in the end. This unique idea of adding white chocolate in peanut butter fudge is a great piece to try for the holidays!
