Let me know how the swirl goes. When I melted the peanutbutter chips, the peanut butter and the condensed milk together, it all kind of came together like a dough would. I put the chocolate on top and tried some swirling with a toothpick, but it just mangled the peanut butter underneath and brought small pieces to the top, more messy than swirly. I ended up just making the chocolate a thin top layer.

Hmmm. The original idea I had was to melt the chocolate chips and the peanut butter chips separately and combine them in the dish, but now I'm not so sure.

One gal brought a Reese's flavored dish to work one Christmas. She told me the recipe and that it contained a jar of peanut butter, mixed with an equal amount of confectioner's sugar, spread that mix in a pan and topped with melted chocolate, but it's been a long time and I've never made it myself, so I'll have to look around the recipe sites to see if I can find something like it. I just know that it was very simple, and tasted exactly like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

I have used a recipe that calls for icing sugar on my baking thread.

1 can condensed milk
Filler (i used marshmallows and cinnamon)

I was also wondering if by using the same concept I could make peanut butter fudge. In place of the semi-sweet chocolate chips, I would use peanut butter chips. I was hoping to replace the milk chocolate chips with peanut butter, but would the oil in the PB cause this to be a problem? Still using the 1 can of condensed milk.

Any advice, or in the case of the PB being a problem, alternate recipes that might ask for condensed milk - would be helpful.

Thanks

Re Can of condensed milk - forgive a Dumb Question: what size can? They make a little one as well as a big one.

Another DQ: What's meant by "filler"? Just add-in's, or do you layer the fudge & filler?

I'd like to try using this recipe as a top layer for a p.b. bottom layer using a recipe I already have.

And thank you.

The cans are 300 mL.
Yes I meant add-in's. I finished some layered fudge (peanut butter/butterscotch fudge between 2 layers of chocolate fudge) with no add-ins.

Thank you for the reply, Go. Your layers sound heavenly together.

Ooooooooooooh I want some. That was a great way to get the flavors together without mixing. I'll have to try that. Adding to my list for Thursday shopping. I still have walnut pieces, but I don't think it would be necessary, nor especially good. You've already got the flavors going on.

Can you give me the recipe? I wondered that you had said condensed milk in your first post. I thought you used sweetened condensed milk in fudge. Please clarify.

I'm shopping tomorrow and want to get the right stuff.
