Easy Chocolate Fudge Recipe/PB Fudge Question

Hey guys,

I recently made some really good fudge, using a quick and easy recipe, which called for:

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cups milk chocolate chips (added for smoothness, milkyness, more sugar! blah blah blah)
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

I've been thinking of this for some time. I can't see any reason it wouldn't work. It would be especially nice if you could melt the chocolate and peanut butter chips separately and swirl them together at the end. Hmmmmm?

The only thing is I can't image making fudge without nuts, but maybe not this one.

The fudge is done, cooling in the fridge. Swirled in some milk chocolate on the top. Can't wait! Nom nom nom.

Nice to see you too, and the fudge is great. It's like a peanut butter cup with the soft texture of fudge. <--- This is win.

YUM! I'm glad to know it worked out. I'll have to try my swirl idea next time I make fudge, which will probably be soon since you've made me hungry for it.
