Peanut Butter Mini Reese’s Pieces Fudge

Peanut Butter Mini Reese’s Pieces Fudge

Over the years I have made several different kinds of peanut butter fudge. I have used peanut butter chips, creamy peanut butter, Reese’s cups, white chocolate Reese’s cups, peanut butter M&M’s…the list goes on. This time I used Reese’s peanut butter chips and added a WHOLE bag of miniature Reese’s Pieces baking candies.
The trick to making this fudge is freezing the Reese’s Pieces before adding it to the hot fudge mixture. This leaves you with a fudge that is creamy yet crunchy, chock-full of little Reese’s Pieces deliciousness.
