Fun Memory:  A few years ago, I was looking for some other options to put on my Christmas cookie platter besides cookies.  I thought fudge would be the perfect item.   I had so many complements that year and several family/friends were asking for the recipe! The best part?  They are NO BAKE!  And of course, who doesn’t like the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? 

Tip #1:  Line your baking pan with parchment paper to easily remove the bars from the pan.

Tip #2:  Are you a fan of nuts within your fudge?  Add in 1/2 c. chopped nuts in the top or middle layer portions.

Tip #3:  Not a fan of Milk Chocolate?  You can swap with Semi-Sweet chocolate! 



  1. My oh my, these look amazing! …Hard to resist!
