This Delicious chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe is a very special treat that you will really want to serve only on quite rare occasions, and after a big dinner so that you and your family will only eat small pieces of this very decadent treat. Chocolate peanut butter fudge can have some small nutritious aspects to it, but generally speaking, this dish is loaded with sugar and fat, and so should be perceived as one of those singularly special things that you eat and serve only on rare times and with great caution as well as good portion control. This chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe includes several types of chocolate, so you can expect big chocolate flavor out of this dish when you make it. As well, the fudge recipe includes marshmallows and other rich and sugary ingredients. So invite the kids to help you make up this treat, and pack extra marshmallows (for you know they will steal some, at the very least!). This particular fudge recipe is an especially good choice of food to make with the kids since it does not require the traditional high heat that classic fudge requires. That is because the chocolate chips and other ingredients that are used to make up this snack have already been tempered to solidify at room temperature. So you do not need to do that step again in order that this chocolate peanut butter fudge comes in to a great consistency.
Fudge is an old food that was supposedly invented when a young cook or baker burned the caramel that he was preparing (and it would almost certainly have been a he making the caramel, since most cooks were male). The result instead was rich fudge, and the popularity of this snack food has grown ever since then (or so the story goes). The range and variety of flavors that you can find in fudge have grown as well. Originally, fudge was pretty exclusively maple or vanilla flavored, but has since grown to include chocolate, and much later, nuts and dried fruit. Today, you can buy fruit or even veggie flavored fudge, and fudge that incorporates other complete ingredients such as chopped up chocolate bars, malt balls, and M&Ms (to name only a few; the entire list would be incredibly long).
This chocolate peanut butter fudge recipe is relatively simple in that it is a pure blend of chocolate ingredients to shape the base of the fudge recipe and uses peanut butter chips to create the top of the fudge recipe. Together, the flavors of peanut butter and chocolate are perfect complements that combine their deep flavors and rich tastes to produce one terrific fudge. Enjoy this snack with caution!
