Chocolate and peanut butter - while perfect on their own - are simply heavenly combined. This is not a new revelation (my last post focussed on this same perfect duo). However it presents many opportunities that I am loathe to waste!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge
350g Whittakers Dark Cacao chocolate
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups icing sugar, sifted
1 cup of peanut butter melts and candies e.g. Reeses Pieces
Melt the butter and chocolate together in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the peanut butter (still heating) and stir until combined.
|I melted the butter on its own to start|
|350 beautiful, tasty grams...|
Remove from heat and add the icing sugar half a cup at a time, tasting each time until preferred sweetness is reached.
Stir in chopped peanut butter melts and candies if using. Pour mixture into a 9 inch by 13 inch rectangular tin, lined with baking paper. Refrigerate until set then cut into pieces and serve at room temperature.
|You can use any peanut butter candies or melts, or even other flavours if you prefer|

|Delicious 'after' shots!|
