You will simply love these chocolate peanut butter fudge recipes if you enjoy the sweetness of chocolate and the richness of peanut butter. It is definitely a match made in heaven. :)
Preparing a chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe is a treat that I try to only indulge in at the holidays or on special occasions.
The only reason I have this unusual restriction is because when I get in the same house with this scrumptious treat, I lose all sense of self control.
You may be more disciplined than I am, but I thought it was only fair that I should warn you. This stuff is pretty great.
That's not to say that I don't BUY chocolate peanut butter fudge from time to time. In fact, I do. You do have to have the odd exception to the rules, don't you? :)
Here are a few of my favorite chocolate and peanut butter fudge recipes. I hope you like them!
