Buckeye Fudge


I have heard of Buckeye Candy before, but for some reason, I have never made it.  I  can't imagine why.  I first became aware of the Buckeye Fudge version from Christin over at Spicy Southern Kitchen.

As soon as I saw this fudge on her website,  I wanted to make it, and I knew it would be perfect in our  Christmas treat boxes.

I have to tell you, it is absolutely the best fudge.  I mean, it is close to becoming my favorite fudge of all time with my Mother's Millionaire Fudge being my favorite.



Buckeye Fudge is a creamy peanut butter fudge layer covered with a thick layer of chocolate ganache.  This is the best way I can describe it.  Two amazing fudge flavors stacked on top of each other.    Like Christin says peanut butter and chocolate, "What's not to love!"

Buckeye candy can be time consuming rolling and dipping each little ball.  Now the fudge, it only takes 10-15 minutes to make the layers.   That is quite a bit of a time saver.

I hope you too can enjoy making some of this wonderfully delicious fudge for your New Year celebrations.  Enjoy!




Buckeye Fudge

    Peanut Layer:
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    3 cups powdered sugar

    Chocolate Layer:
    2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condense milk
    2 tablespoons butter

In a 4 cup glass measuring cup, add peanut and butter.  Microwave on HIGH for  90 seconds, stirring with a wire whisk after each 30 seconds.  Stir in vanilla until creamy smooth.

Pour peanut butter mixture in the bowl of an electric mixer.  Slowly add powdered sugar a cup at a time using a paddle attachment of the electric mixer to combine.  Mixture will be thick but soft.

Spoon mixture in a parchment paper lined 9" square dish.  Pat mixture down evenly; set aside.

In a 4 cup measuring cup, add semi-sweet chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and butter.  Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds and stir.  Microwave an additional 30 seconds or as needed so the  chocolate and sweetened condensed milk is creamy smooth, stirring after each 30 seconds.

Pour immediately over peanut butter layer.  Smooth out with a off-set spatula.  Refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting into squares.

Store in airtight containers.
