Do you believe in fate? Occasionally, I think the universe just begs for things to happen. Like, this fudge popped up in my Facebook feed right after I put little man down for a nap. And I had all the ingredients handy. It was like the whole world was just begging for this to get made. Of course, I obliged.
This was ridiculously easy. Like, I had it finished and the kitchen cleaned up before Jake’s power nap was over. That never happens! It’s not my favorite fudge ever (that’s Mom’s!), but it’s reminiscent of the fudge we get on the boardwalk and my husband has been munching it happily all week. I’m sure this will be my go-to way to use up leftover icing in the future!
Quick & Easy Reese’s Fudge
(from Real Housemoms)
Makes 1 pan
1 container vanilla icing
1 1/2 cups chocolate peanut butter spread
Mini Reese’s Pieces
Line a small loaf pan with parchment.
Scoop the icing and spread into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and whisk until thoroughly combined. (Microwave in 15-second increments if it’s not melted enough.)
Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle Reese’s Pieces over the top and press in slightly. Refrigerate for several hours before slicing and serving. Store covered in the refrigerator.
