Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips divided
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil divided (unsalted butter may be substituted)
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk divided
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts divided

Instructions 

  • Line an 8x8" square baking pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place a sauté pan with about 2 inches of water over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Place 1 cup of the chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl with 1 tablespoon of the coconut oil and 1/2 of the can of the sweetened condensed milk. Place the bowl into the pan of simmering water and reduce heat to low (this is your double boiler).
  • Stir the chocolate mixture with a rubber scraper until smooth, then add 1/4 cup of the chopped peanuts and stir until combined.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
  • Place the peanut butter and remaining coconut oil in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 30 seconds or until melted, then stir to combine.
  • Stir in the remaining sweetened condensed milk until well incorporated.
  • Pour the peanut butter fudge mixture over the chocolate mixture and spread evenly.
  • Press the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup of chopped peanuts into the top, and chill for a minimum of 2 hours or until set. Once chilled, lift the fudge out of the pan and remove the foil. Place on a cutting board and cut into squares. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Pro tip:  I highly recommend using dark chocolate because it contains less sugar.  Semi-sweet or milk chocolate will result in overly sweet fudge when combined with the sweetened condensed milk.
  • Store chocolate peanut butter fudge in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
