Peanut Butter Fudge with Reese’s Pieces and Marshmallow Bits

Peanut Butter Fudge with Reese’s Pieces and Marshmallow Bits

One of my family’s favorite fudge recipes isย Peanut Butter Mini Reese’s Pieces Fudge. When I pulled the bag of Reese’s Pieces out of the cupboard to make a batch, I noticed half of a container of Kraft marshmallow bits. I wondered what would happen if I froze the marshmallow bits along with the Reese’s Pieces (to stir into the fudge without melting). Guess what?! I made the BEST peanut butter fudge to date. It is creamy from the peanut butter chips, crunchy from the Reese’s Pieces, and chewy from the marshmallow bits. It was SO good in fact, I gave away about 80% of the batch before my husband and I were tempted into eating all three pounds. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. This sounds so good. I love to make fudge so I’m always looking for some good varieties. I’d love for you to link up at Whatcha Whipped Up Wednesday Hope to see you there!

  2. Yum! I love Reece’s Pieces!

  3. Oh my. This looks like my dream. I live in the UK and I’ve never heard of Marshmallow Creme – is it like Marshmallow Fluff?

  4. Marshmallow creme is very similar to marshmallow fluff. It can be used interchangeably, but I do prefer the smoothy silky texture of the creme to the fluff. Here is a link to the product for more info.: http://www.amazon.com/Jet-Puffed-Marshmallow-Creme-7-Ounce-Jars/dp/B000E1BKJU

  5. Oh right, thanks so much! I will have to give it a go.
