Peanut Butter Rocky Road Fudge!

 

Peanut Butter Rocky Road Fudge

Being a food blogger and a new Mum doesn’t exactly go hand in hand. There are literally not enough hours in the day to achieve everything I want to achieve. On the plus side, I’m discovering loads of great recipes that take next to no time to prepare but still taste great! Allowing me to enjoy being both a Mum and a blogger. This recipe is no exception. It takes about 10 minutes to make & about 2 hours to set. So the fridge actually does most of the hard work for you. That’s the kind of cooking I like to do!

Here is what you will need to make approx 36 pieces.

(Recipe adapted from Shugary Sweets.)

  • 300g Milk Chocolate *
  • 300g Dark Chocolate *
  • 125g Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 125g Mini Marshmallows
  • 180g Peanuts **

Essential Equipment

  • 8 x 8″ Square Tin or Silicone Baking Pan

* Yes this is a lot of chocolate. No it doesn’t have to be expensive! The 30p supermarket own brand 100g bars of chocolate are just as good as the expensive brands for recipes like this.

** If you can’t find unflavoured peanuts, just buy salted & rinse them well in a sieve with cold water. Then toast them in a hot, dry frying pan to get rid of any liquid. Allow to cool before using.

Right, let’s get cracking!

If using a baking tin, lightly grease and line the base & sides with baking paper. If using a silicone pan, there’s no need to do either.

Break the milk & dark chocolate into a large glass bowl. Add in the peanut butter and heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Stir well in-between.

Store in the fridge in an airtight container.

This is honestly WAY nicer than I was expecting. Even the Mr (who doesn’t even like fudge) said he really liked it too! I don’t know about you but I consider that a success. It’s crunchy, chewy & seriously chocolatey. Can’t really ask for much more from a rocky road fudge can you?!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
