Reese’s Fudge combines two amazing things: chocolate fudge and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It’s a chocolate fudge…with a Reese’s crust!
Today is a special day. It’s not just “eat my weight in Reese’s” day, nope. Today is…
…Ashton’s Housewarming party! You know Ashton, right? My BFF from Something Swanky? Of course you know her. She’s awesome.
Way back a few years ago, I kept getting comments from this chick named Ashton. She invited me to her linky party, and kept leaving sweet notes on all my sugar. Most days, she was the only comment! After awhile I realized I was supposed to return the favor and visit her (yeah, I’m slow sometimes) and we began our blogging friendship.
For a long time we’ve called ourselves the dessert twins: so many times I’ve posted something and she’s written to say “OMG! I just made that!”
And then there was Online BlogCon. That experience turned us from blogging friends into real-life ones. You get to know someone pretty well when you’re on FB chat with them all day and you’re drunk on exhaustion and too much sugar from all the work you’re doing.
Ashton’s moved a few times since I’ve known her, so why is today a big deal? Because she’s finally moving into a house, with a lawn, where there’s space and her daughter can play outside. And you know what? Her blogging allowed her to do it.
She loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (who doesn’t?) and so I decided to take fudge to her virtual housewarming. I don’t know about you, but after a stressful move and waiting for the service people and OMG TURN ON THE INTERNET drama, I need chocolate and peanut butter. I figured she could use some too.
This fudge is super simple to whip up. And it sort of has a crust…a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup crust. You start out this fudge by lining the bottom of a pan with unwrapped peanut butter cups. The fudge itself is a simple fudge recipe using sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. You layer this over the peanut butter cups and top it off with peanuts.
It’s like eating a Reese’s…only better. Because it has more candy on it.
It’s peanut butter and chocolate explosion to the extreme. And you know…
Chocolate + Peanut Butter = The Perfect Medicine for Stressful Moving
Congratulations on your new house Ashton! I heart you, so much. Excuse me while I go eat all your virtual fudge…
