White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

     I love experimenting with fudge. I have made dozens of different flavors over the past several years, and my newest one includes white chocolate peanut butter cups. The base of the fudge is made out of white chocolate and the addition of the peanut butter cups gives it some nice flavor and texture.

   The trick to keeping this fudge moist is to freeze the peanut butter cups after crushing them. Stir them in JUST until they are incorporated. If you stir too much, they will melt into the base and make the fudge crumbly.

I put the unwrapped candy in a freezer bag and break it up by squeezing it with my fingers.
