Double Decker Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

This Double Decker Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge is by far my most favorite fudge recipe. It is so easy to make and comes together in a matter of minutes. It is the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Everyone will go crazy for this amazing fudge.

When we were growing up, my mom was notorious for making Christmas “goodie plates” for friends and neighbors.

She would spend a couple of days in the kitchen baking up a storm (she always made her famous sugar cookies and her pretzel turtle bites) and it was torture as a child to smell all those yummy cookies and treats and know that they were going to be given away.

One of my favorite treats that my mom would add to her neighbor goodie plates was this Double Decker Fudge. As one who loves anything with chocolate and peanut butter combined, this fudge is a weakness of mine.

I bet that I could devour an entire pan by myself without batting an eye!

This fudge is incredibly rich – I would recommend cutting it into very small pieces.

If you prefer mint over peanut butter, you are going to want to check out our Andes Mint Fudge (it’s amazing!). Our Snickers Fudge is also out of this world!

Ingredients needed to make this fudge:

  • peanut butter chocolate chips
  • semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • sugar
  • marshmallow creme
  • evaporated milk
  • butter
  • vanilla extract

To make this recipe work, I would not recommend substituting any of the ingredients. You can’t use peanut butter in place of the chips – it won’t set up the same. Marshmallows don’t work as well as marshmallow creme; I recommend just making the recipe as is for best results.

 

what is the best way to get a clean cut of fudge?

It can be a little hard to get the perfect clean cut with fudge. However, if you let it set up the full time, it shouldn’t be difficult to cut evenly.

We recommend letting it cool completely at room temperature (or let it set up in the fridge) until the fudge hardens.

After it has hardened, place a sharp knife under hot water. Slice the fudge with the hot knife. You may need to run it under hot water every few cuts so that it cuts smoothly every time.

I also recommend wiping the knife off with a paper towel or cloth between each cut to wipe off excess fudge.

Double Decker Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

Save RecipeSave Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 (10 ounce) bag peanut butter chips
  • 1 (11.5 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 (7 ounce) jars marshmallow creme
  • 1 1/2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Instructions

  1. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with foil.
  2. Using two large mixing bowls, pour peanut butter chips in one and chocolate chips in the other.
  3. Combine the sugar, marshmallow creme, evaporated milk, and butter in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat.
  4. When the mixture comes to a boil, stir continuously for 5 minutes (let it boil the entire time you are stirring).
  5. Remove the saucepan from heat and add vanilla. Quickly stir to incorporate.
  6. Carefully pour half of the marshmallow mixture into the peanut butter chips bowl and the other half into the chocolate chip bowl.
  7. Stir the peanut butter chips until they are melted and the mixture is smooth (it will take a minute or two). Pour the peanut butter mixture into the bottom of the pan lined with foil.
  8. Now stir the chocolate chip mixture until the chips are completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Carefully pour and spread on top of the peanut butter layer in the pan (I slowly and carefully poured mine on top, then used a spatula to spread it to the edges- if you pour too quickly, it will make holes and dents in your fudge).
  9. Let the fudge cool for a couple of minutes before placing in the fridge. Allow fudge to set up for 2-4 hours, then cut and serve.

Notes

This will give you about 60 pieces of fudge. But you can cut them any size you want.

  1. My mom gave me this same recipe over 20 years ago, and I have been making it every year at Christmas time since then. It is so much more tasty than the recipes that use peanut butter. I sold this fudge at boutiques for many years and it was always a hit!
  2. Every year I get requests to make my orange creamcicle fudge and that can get rather expensive. I was wondering if you had a 2 ingredient recipe for creamcicle fudge or if you think your recipe could be adapted? I'm thinking it can and considering trying it with the frosting, orange candy melts and orange flavoring. What do you think? Deanna
