Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Servings 2 dozen pieces


  • 1 can, 14.5-ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 12-ounce package chocolate chip


  • Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper or wax paper allowing the edges to extend over the prepared pan.
  • Pour the condensed milk and creamy peanut butter into a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Slowly stir the peanut butter chocolate mixture for about 10 minutes until it is thin and creamy.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chocolate chips until melted. Spread the fudge in an even layer into the bottom of the pan using a silicone baking spatula or wooden spoon to spread into the corners.
  • Refrigerate the fudge for 2-3 hours before lifting the fudge out of the pan using the parchment paper. Cut the fudge into squares with a sharp knife. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.


Tend to the pot while melting since the stove top is a hotter heart source.
Gas and electric stove tops differ in heat so adjust the temperature accordingly. If medium heat is too hot reduce the heat to medium low or low.
Alternatively, melt the ingredients using the microwave uncovered on high in 1-minute increments, stirring well between each, until melted and smooth. This may take several minutes. Be careful; the bowl will get hot.

  • Chocolate and peanut butter are such a classic combination! I love how simple this fudge is! My boys love it, I will have to make them some for Christmas!

  • You have me sold! I’m gifting everyone fudge instead of cookies this year! 3 ingredients and 10 minutes is hard to beat – and this looks store bought for sure – though betcha it tastes better!

    Followed instructions exactly. Medium heat is WAY too high. milk/peanut butter mixture curdled slightly. Kept it on low. Transferred off heat to add the chocolate chips and everything crumbled and I wasn’t able to pour into a dish. The chocolate melted/cooked way too fast because of the original hot heat even after turning it on low. Mom to the rescue; she is turning them into dumb looking truffles. Not what I expected. Will try again with a very low setting.

    • Thanks Kelly for your comment. It sounds like the heat on your stove was too hot. I suppose different ovens will have different levels of medium heat, especially between gas and electric ranges. Definitely try it again at a low to medium low heat so the ingredients melt slower. Also use a heavier bottomed pot and tend to the pot since the stovetop is a hotter heat source. As soon as the ingredients are melted remove the pot from the burner and continue to the next step. Good luck on the next batch. 🙂

    • Yes, you can leave out the peanut butter. Just use about 3 cups of chips and one can of the condensed milk.
