  • 16 (252g) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups , unwrapped
  • 3 cups (510g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 -14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Line a 9x9” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Chop peanut butter cups until chunky. Reserve about ¼ cup for the top of the fudge.
  • Stovetop: Place chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir until chips and milk are melted together.
  • Microwave: Place chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk in a large microwave safe bowl. Heat 1 minute on high, then stir, then heat in additional 30 second increments, stirring after, until melted and smooth.
  • Once everything is melted together, remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Stir in chopped peanut butter cups and press into prepared pan. Immediately sprinkle with reserved peanut butter cups, pressing lightly to adhere them.
  • Cool until firm. I like to cool the fudge on the counter until it’s close to room temperature, then cover with plastic and place in the refrigerator to harden completely. Cut into squares and serve.



  • Use parchment paper or foil to line your pan when making fudge. This will make the removal of the fudge easier after it has cooled. 
  • It's important to assemble all your ingredients before starting because making Reese's fudge goes fast - you want everything ready for you.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
