Happy Monday and October 1st everyone!
Hopefully you all had an amazing weekend. My husband and I were busy with yard work this weekend. Our girls even helped us with pulling the weeds in our flower beds!
Needless, to say it took a little longer than expected to get everything cleaned up. After yard work, there was so much laundry I had to get finished with to get caught up and ready for this upcoming week.
Even though we were busy with chores this weekend, I did find some time to make my husbands favorite fudge, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Fudge. He has been asking me to make this fudge for quite some time now and I used it as an excuse to take a moment away from helping with the yard work!
There is a little background to how this fudge came about and with it being a favorite of my husband. When we were first dating, I found out his favorite candy was Reese’s peanut butter cups. At the time, my favorite dessert was fudge and specifically a peanut butter fudge that I loved making.
I decided to make a variation of my peanut butter fudge by adding Reese’s into the mix. I figured this would be the best way to win him over. Spoiler alert- it worked!
So if you are looking for a way to win your significant other over, I suggest you give this recipe a try. It just may work! Either way it will be a delicious treat.
I normally put half of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in initially and then after the fudge has set a couple of hours I will press the remaining cups in the top. This recent time that I made it, I decided just pour all of the Reese cups in at once, so the majority of them sank to the bottom. It still tastes amazing but aesthetically speaking I like to have the Reeses on top visible.
I searched through my husbands Instagram pictures and found the picture of the original Reese’s Peanut Butter Fudge I had made that he took a photo of. You’ll end up with a lot of more than what is pictured so be prepared.
If you give this recipe a try, I hope you enjoy it. I look forward to sharing my next post with you! Have a great week!
