White Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

This fudge combines the best of both worlds! Peanut butter and white chocolate! If you are not a white chocolate fan, I recommend you still try this recipe but swap out the white chocolate chips for your favorite variety. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate and even butterscotch chips would work with this recipe! I like this fudge room temperature but you can also chill it and eat it straight cold from the refrigerator. Be sure to use sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk for this recipe. They are both type of dairy but extremely different.

I have always been a fudge fan and when Reece cups came out with their white chocolate cups, I must have eaten 20 pounds of them that season. White chocolate and peanut butter is one of my very favorite combinations. I remember my Grandma Barbra ordering special white chocolate covered peanut butter creams at Good’s Candies in Kennard when I was younger. She would hide the box from me because she knew I would eat them all if I found the box. Well, here is a recipe that I have made several times, that I have eaten all of! Make this and enjoy.
