 How does starting out the week with lots of holiday goodies sound to you?  Today is going to be such a “sweet” day.

I am excited to be joining with some awesome blog friends again to bring you another round of holiday baking fun.   We all had so much fun baking with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates in the past few weeks.  Are you ready for round two?  Go ahead and get out the stretchy pants…there are some delicious looking recipes that you definitely need to try.   

Holiday-Family-Fun

Do you bake treats with your family during the holidays?  One of our family traditions is to pick one day during December and bake together.

I usually come up with a list of cookies and fudge that will be made for our cookie trays.  There are certain cookies that just have to be on that list every year, but we usually add a few new ones too.  Then each family member picks which one they want to put together.  They get to make “their” cookie from start to finish.  That also means they are the first one to taste test that cookie and first to eat any leftover candy.

It’s a rough job, but someone has to do it.

This white chocolate peanut butter fudge literally disappeared within minutes of taking it to my son’s soccer party.  It has a layer of peanut butter and a layer of white chocolate fudge with peanut butter cups swirled into it.  I’m sure you can see why it would go so quickly.

I actually only got to eat one small piece of this fudge before we headed to the party…I almost hid it in a closet for later.  There were some store bought cookies in the cupboard…soccer players wouldn’t care right?  But I resisted the urge to devour the entire batch of fudge and sent it on its way.

But you better believe I am making another pan of this fudge…maybe even two.

My kids are great at unwrapping the candies for me.  Although I do have to watch them like a hawk or else they eat them as quickly as they unwrap them.  I’m thinking I should just buy an extra bag of candy to combat this problem.

I think I should grab some more stretchy pants while I’m at the store too.  Something tells me I’m going to need it when I get my hands on this fudge again.

Of course I really won’t eat all the peanut butter fudge.  I might want too, but reality will set in, and I will wrap it up and send it to friends and family.  Sharing is caring, especially when stretchy pants are involved.

We usually buy cute tins to fill with all our goodies.  Another cute idea for fudge though is an egg carton.

For this one I cut the egg carton in half.  Then we put the fudge in small cupcake liners before filling each compartment.  A plastic bag, twine, and a holiday tag finish off this cute little gift idea.  Most people do not want an entire batch of fudge, so this is a great way to share a few pieces with more people.  (I found the pink egg cartons at Shop Sweet Lulu’s.)

Now excuse me…I hear a half empty bag of peanut butter cups calling my name.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 36 pieces of fudge

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Fudge

Peanut butter and white chocolate layered fudge with Reese's peanut butter cups swirled inside.

Ingredients

For the Peanut Butter layer
1 2/3 cups peanut butter chips
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
For the White Chocolate layer
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
16 miniature Reese's Peanut butter Cups, unwrapped and quartered
18 little mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups halved

Instructions

  1. Place a piece of parchment paper into an 8x8 baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan combine the peanut butter chips, butter, and sweetened condensed milk. Heat over low until melted and creamy. Stir in the marshmallow cream. Stir until completely mixed. Pour into the prepared dish. Let set about 30 minutes.
  3. In a clean saucepan combine the white chips and sweetened condensed milk. Heat over low heat until melted and creamy. Stir in the marshmallow cream until mixed. Let cool 3-4 minutes.
  4. Stir in the quartered peanut butter cups gently, but quickly. Do not stir too much. The peanut butter cups will start to melt, but this will give you a pretty swirl in the white chocolate. Pour over the set peanut butter layer. Let set at least 5 minutes. Place the little halved minis on top of the fudge in a 6x6 grid. Let cool until completely set. Cut into 36 squares. Store in a sealed container on the counter. Makes 36 pieces of fudge.
