Peanut Butter Rocky Road Fudge

Candy making season is upon us! I love candy-making season, don't you? There's just something about the smell of warm caramel, melting chocolate, and marshmallows that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Perhaps it's because my mother used to make candy every year for the church bazaar when I was a little girl. If you like to make candy as much as I do, you are going to love this recipe. No baking is involved, just melting, stirring, pouring, waiting, and then digging in. When I made this last month for my dad he gobbled it up and asked for more, so give this simple and delicious recipe a try, nothing is easier.

Peanut Butter Rocky Road Fudge

1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1½ cups peanut butter chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk, divided
2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
2 tbsp butter, divided
2 cups miniature marshmallows, divided
2 cups dry roasted peanuts

Line a 9” x 9” pan with foil, leaving a 1-1/2” overhang on each end. Spray foil with Pam; set aside.

Divide sweetened condensed milk between two microwave-safe bowls. (Just eyeball it.) In one bowl add chocolate chips and 1 Tablespoon of butter; in the other bowl add peanut butter chips and 1 Tablespoon of butter. 

First microwave the chocolate and condensed milk combination, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Next microwave condensed milk and peanut butter chips, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.  Stir 1 teaspoon of vanilla into each bowl.

Pour mixtures into the pan, one at a time, swirling together if you like (I didn't). 

Sprinkle peanuts on top, and then follow with the marshmallows, pressing down lightly. Chill until firm.

Carefully lift out of the pan with the ends of the foil; cut into squares.
