There are really two reasons why making fudge over cookies is the best way to go.

With fudge you make it, let it set and cut it apart. It really is that easy. Secondly, forget the oven there is no baking required!

Looking for some tips on making fudge? Check out a few of my favorite tips.

  • How should I store fudge?
    • Fudge keeps just fine at room temperature, you really don’t need to refrigerate it.
    • If you decide to store in the refrigerator or a cold room, be sure to seal in an airtight container otherwise your fudge will dry out and you don’t want crumbly fudge friends.
  • How long will fudge last unrefrigerated?
    • Fudge will last up to two week when stored at room temperature. If you would like to extending its shelf than store in an airtight container in the refrigerator; see note above.
  • How do you freeze fudge?
    • To freeze fudge there are two ways to best do this.
      • If your fudge is already sliced or cut, then individually wrap each piece in the batch and place in an airtight container.
      • If the fudge is still in a block, wrap the entire block up and place in an airtight container.
    • You may cut the fudge once you have removed it from the freezer and allowed it to thaw.
    • It is best to double wrap all fudge in plastic wrap when freezing and always place in an airtight container.

Author Sandra


  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 11 ounce bag white chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter


  • Line an 8 or 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. First spraying the pan with cooking oil, then lining with parchment paper, extending paper over edges of pan. The cooking oil helps the parchment paper to stick to the pan.
  • In a medium saucepan, add sweetened condensed milk and 1/2 cup peanut butter over medium heat. Cook stirring constantly until just bubbly, about 7-9 minutes. It is ready once the milk and peanut butter start to bubble and thin a bit.
  • Turn of the heat and stir in white chocolate chips and vanilla until smooth. Spread into prepared pan.
  • Heat the 2 Tablespoons peanut butter in the microwave to soften it a bit more. Then add dollops randomly in the pan. Using a butter knife quickly swirl the peanut butter into the fudge.
  • Tap the bottom of the pan against the counter to smooth it out a bit. Cover and refrigerate.
  • Chill for 2 hours, then remove from pan by lifting the parchment paper. Cut into 20 squares and serve!
