Ingredients

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk, divided
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for brushing
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • Coarse salt
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped (2 cups)

Directions

  1. Brush a 8-by-8-inch baking dish with butter, and line with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang on long sides. Brush parchment with butter.

  2. Heat 1/2 cup condensed milk, 4 tablespoons butter, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring, until melted, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix in peanut butter and 1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar. Press peanut butter mixture into the bottom of prepared baking dish, smoothing top with an offset spatula.

  3. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring, until melted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in remaining 3/4 cup condensed milk and a pinch of salt, until melted and combined. Mix in remaining 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar. Spread chocolate mixture over peanut butter layer, smoothing top with an offset spatula. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

  4. Remove fudge from pan using parchment to lift, and transfer to a cutting board. Peel off parchment. Using a warm knife, cut crosswise into eight 1-inch-wide strips; cut each strip into 8 pieces.

    This was the worst "fudge" recipe I've ever tried. It was akin to hard, dry frosting and ended up in the trash.

    I didn't care for this recipe at all. Although she has wonderful recipes that I constantly make over and over again, this definitely isn't one of them. It's very grainy and just doesn't taste good. I love peanutbutter and chocolate but this was not good. Very disappointed.
