Quick Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge

We love special treats around my house. I also love whipping up something fast and easy. This is a small batch quick chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe. There won’t be any leftovers. This fudge will be gobbled up just as fast as it was to make it.

I have not doubled the recipe. So I don’t know what the results will be from doubling the recipe. I recommend making two separate batches if this is for more than four people.

Everything in the Saucepan

All you need is one small saucepan, large spoon, and some wax paper. Once the butter is melted you combine everything in the warm saucepan. The warmth of the saucepan makes everything easier to combine especially the creamy peanut butter.

Wax Paper

You need wax paper. You will dump the fudge mixture onto the wax paper. The wax paper makes it easy to spread and shape the fudge into the desired size.

Spread out a sheet of wax paper and dump the fudge mixture into the middle. Fold the wax paper over the fudge and press, flatten and spread the fudge between the wax paper. Fold the remaining flaps of wax paper around the fudge. The wax paper keeps everything in place and the fudge does not stick to the wax paper.

Sprinkles for the Season

Add festive sprinkles to reflect the season. The sprinkles don’t really stick like they do with frosting so don’t add to many. They are just for sparkle and aesthetics!

Small Batch

This recipe makes a small batch that serves about 4 people. Depending on the size of the fudge it would be 2-4 pieces a person. This recipe isn’t for a crowd or intended to have leftovers. It is a fun, fast and easy special treat!
