Packaged fudge;
Make sure to separate between sheets of waxed paper.
     It’s been a while since I posted a fudge recipe, so I figured this one would be good with Easter coming up. If you are anything like me, then perhaps you bought a bag of the Easter Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. There isn’t anything different about the cups themselves, but they are wrapped in some pretty spring colors. In case you have some leftover after the holiday, here is a yummy recipe for you to try.

Total time
 
Serves: 48
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup butter (1 & ½ sticks)
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 5 oz. can evaporated milk
  • 1&1/3 cups peanut butter chips
  • ⅔ cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 7 oz. jar Marshmallow Creme
  • 1 cup small Reese's peanut butter cups, crushed & frozen
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, stir together butter, sugar, and evaporated milk. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a ROLLING boil. Boil and continue stirring constantly for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and immediately stir in peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, and vanilla extract until mixture is smooth.
  3. Quickly stir in marshmallow creme until no lumps remain.
  4. Stir in crushed Reese's cups until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Let cool four hours on shelf or almost 2 hours in refrigerator before cutting.
Notes
*To crush Reese's cups, you can use a food processor, or even easier, a quart freezer bag. I put the cups in the bag, squeeze out any extra air, and step on them with my feet until they are in tiny pieces. (This is a great job for the kids. My daughter, who is a year and a half old, likes to help me out by stomping on the bag)!
