No Bake Reese’s Fudge Bars Recipe

This No Bake Reese’s Fudge Bars recipe is the perfect combination of my two favorite things- Reese’s peanut butter cups and fudge! Warning: you might not want to share it, they are just that fantastic.

I don’t know about you, but I am ALWAYS down for dessert recipes using Reese’s peanut butter cups. Especially if it is an easy Reese’s dessert. 

If you have any holiday parties coming up, this Reese’s fudge is a perfect recipe to bring along!

Peanut butter fudge is always a crowd favorite, add in some Reese’s and this chocolate peanut butter fudge will be a hit!The no bake Reese’s fudge bars are what dreams are made of AND super quick and easy. What more could you ask from a dessert?! 

No bake desserts are a must this time of year! We have SO many delicious recipes there are too many to share, but a few of my favorites are our no bake crunchy peanut butter clusters, or our healthier no bake chocolate peanut butter cookies to balance out all the sugar we are undoubtedly going to consume this holiday season, and of course you can’t miss the no bake sugar cookie truffles

Did I mention that this is 3 ingredient Reese’s fudge? Yes, you read that right! This recipe only has 3 ingredients! It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

What do you need to make this amazing chocolate peanut butter fudge?

Reese’s fudge ingredients:

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (THESE regular sized ones)
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • Sweetened condensed milk

Pro tips: 

  • Be sure to only use sweetened condensed milk or you will have problems with your bars setting up properly.
  • While we love using milk chocolate chips, feel free to use what you have or your favorite kind! Let us know what you used on Instagram with #sixsistersstuff.
  • The regular size peanut butter cups is what we used, but you are welcome to use the miniature-sized ones too. Just remember to at least double the amount of Reese’s cups, maybe have 3 times the amount on hand just to be safe. 

If you don’t happen to have any sweetened condensed milk, or like to challenge yourself to make everything from scratch, take a look at this homemade sweetened condensed milk recipe from

Key tools to make 3 ingredient reese’s fudge:

  • 9 x 9 inch baking pan
  • Aluminum foil
  • Non-stick cooking spray

Begin by lining a 9 x 9 inch pan like THIS one with foil and then spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. 

Then line the unwrapped peanut butter cups on the bottom of the 9 x 9 pan in an even layer. You should use about 16 of the regular sized cups for the first layer. 

Then, crumble up the remainder of the Reese’s cups. You can use your hand or a knife, whichever you prefer! 

Next, place the milk chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan and cook it over a low heat for a few minutes. Stir the chocolate chips and milk until they are completely melted together.  

After everything is melted together pour the chocolate and milk mixture over the Reese’s cups that are lined on the bottom of the pan. 

Immediately after pouring the chocolate mix, sprinkle the chopped up Reese’s over the top and then using the back of a spoon, press them lightly into the fudge. 

Now, just let the Reese’s fudge cool down until it is firmed up. For best results, let the fudge cool on the counter until it has reached room temperature. 

Once the fudge has cooled down, cover it with foil or plastic cover and then pop it in the fridge to let it completely harden. Then, cut the chocolate peanut butter fudge into squares and serve it up!

  1. I made these today to bring to a dinner at a friends house and they were a huge hit! I used semi sweet chips since it wasn't mentioned but I did see the comment where you mentioned milk chocolate! They were delicious and the recipe was so easy! I seriously try your recipes all the time and am NEVER disappointed!

    My kids ADORE these. I saw the recipe this morning and scraped together the items from my pantry and they rocked. I didn't have an 8 x 8 so I used a 9 x 9 silicone pan, and since it was bigger, I needed more chocolate for the fudgey part. I didn't have condensed milk so I used 1/2 a cup of 2% and 2T of sugar. I also only had one bag of chocolate chips so I used three 2 oz squares of baker's chocolate and added an extra T of sugar. There still wasn't enough delicious-ness to cover the cups, so I melted a cup of peanut butter in the microwave and marbled it into the melted chocolate around the cups. It turned out SOOOOOO amazing. And it only took a few minutes! I was also thinking this could be done with kit-kats, M&M's, malted milk balls... pretty much anything (or even a mix of a few... M&M's and pretzels, perhaps???). Thanks so much for the great idea!

    Cannot wait to try these. Having our grown children and an 8 month old grandson to our cabin in the California Sequoia mountians this weekend and this will be dessert Saturday evening. That is if it lasts until after dinner. Thanks Six Sisters for all the great recipes. You 6 remind me of my own 3 sisters in that you all clearly love each other. Thanks again!!!!

    I know why you say 22 PB cups.... Because you buy them in packages of 8, which means you need three packs, and there are two left over for you to enjoy while you're waiting for the fudge to set! Ha ha ha. Love the recipe!!!

    Wow! I decided to make these to include with a meal I was making for a friend who loves chocolate and reeses cups. I quickly decided I must make a batch to keep at home too. I got a text 30 minutes after I dropped the food off about how delicious the fudge was. Then I came home and tried it myself. It is amazing! What an easy but very delicious dessert! I used semi sweet chocolate chips. Also didn't have a 9x9 pan so I used my 8x8. It worked well. Had to cut a few reeses in half and fill in a few holes and I used a few extra reeses cups for the topping. I will definitely make this again and again.
  8. made these over the weekend, OMG - absolutely delicious! Added chopped pecans over the reese cups and also in the melted chocolate spread. Did put them in the freezer for a couple of hours so they cut much easier. Warning - cut in small size as these are so delicious & rich. Also chopped up the 2nd night and crumbled over ice cream....Thank you for a great recipe I'll be using for family gatherings.

    I just made these for my nephew and his fiance. My nephew returned from a semester in Spain not that long ago and apparently they don't have Reese's in Spain and he has missed them! He will flip when he gets these (and so will his fiance). He is 6' 8" so I'd like to see the flip :) Thanks for the recipe. I did sample them, like any good baker does, and they are delicious!
  10. Has anyone tried making these with the minature Reese's Peanut Butter cups? Not the mini's but the 2-bite ones. I have a pantry full of them but no regular size and I really don't feel like running to the store. I would suspect it would work out fine if I have enough, but I was wondering if anyone has tried?
  11. I had no problem with the bars hardening. I use semi sweet and dark chocolate because that is what I had on hand. The bars taste wonderful but next time I will use 24 Reese's on the bottom instead of 16 to fully cover the 8x8 pan. All the young people that had a chance to eat it at a potluck rated it 4 out of 5 stars.
  12. I just made these, really simple to make. About how long does it take for the fudge bars to hardened? Mine are still soft, of course they've only been in the fridge for an hour, hopefully after a few hours, the fudge will harden up like other fudges.. thanks for sharing!
    • Some people really have a hard time with this recipe, and then we get comments from other viewers saying how easy the Reese's fudge bars were and they make them all the time now. Crossing my fingers for you!!!! :) (We love these reese's bars!)
  13. Hate to be a Debbie Downer here, because these do sound amazing. I just question the need for "No-Bake" in the title of this recipe. I have been making fudge for 30 years and I have yet to bake a batch of fudge. Fudge is a candy and it is made on the stovetop. Change the name and I'll be one of the ones sharing this all around facebook and pinterest.

    Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!!! I made it for the 1st time today and it turned out just perfect!! It sure looks like it was a lot more work then it was and love the no bake especially on a hot day like 2day. I found the snack size 10 packs of Reeses at the dollar store here in Canada for $2.00 that helped make it me save on the cost as well. Thanks!!! I will be making this again for sure!!! Huge hit!!!!
