Only 3 Main Ingredients Required!

Is it really possible to make a delicious treat with only 3 simple ingredients? ABSOLUTELY! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Milk chocolate chips – Brings in the fudgy-chocolate part of this recipe. If you don’t want it as sweet, try it with semi-sweet chocolate chips!
  • Sweetened condensed milk – Helps make the fudge even sweeter than possible and gives it the creamy texture. Some ask if you can swap out the sweetened condensed milk for evaporated milk, and you can’t. They aren’t the same, so stick with what’s in the recipe!
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups – An obvious ingredient for this recipe! But it’s the best part!

What Size of Reese’s You Should Use

We used regular sized Reese’s in this recipe and strongly suggest you do too! They line an 8×8 pan perfectly!

How to Make Reese’s Fudge

Not only does this fudge recipe have easy ingredients, it has easy instructions too! It takes just 10 minutes to whip up, but it does need time to set up, so you’ll need to account for that.

Step 1

Line a 8×8 glass dish with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Unrap 16 whole Reese’s and line the bottom of the dish with them. Set aside.

Step 2

In a large, microwave-safe bowl, stir the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk together and microwave in 30 second increments until smooth and velvety, stirring in between each increment. Pour over the peanut butter cups and smooth the top with a silicon spatula.

Step 3

Chop up the remaining Reese’s and press into the top. Bring to room temperature (it usually takes about an hour) and then refrigerate until solid. Once the fudge is firm, remove from the pan using the foil, and cut into squares. Tada! Reese’s Fudge! ENJOY!

Storing Directions

If there’s any fudge leftover, you can store it in an airtight container for about two weeks.

In the Fridge

If you’re wanting to extend the life of the fudge beyond two weeks, store in the fridge for up to 4 weeks!

In the Freezer

And if you want to save this fudge EVEN LONGER… Wrap the fudge in foil and place in a freezer bag or an airtight container and freeze up toe 3 months.
