It has been an entire month since our last Adventures in Chocolate recipe. Overdue in my book. After seeing this recipe on a friend’s fb timeline, it took me 3 seconds flat to know we were going in. It’s no coincidence that she posted it either. I’m pretty sure it was a subtle hint, hint, nudge, nudge, in hopes that I’d make a batch of White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Fudge and Share the Love.
A couple of years ago, for this same friend’s birthday, I made her a batch of White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. Heaven I’m telling you.
It was with that enthusiasm in mind that I cut up white peanut butter cups and folded them into this fudge. Every sweet bite is worth savoring and of course sharing.
Everyone who has tried this fudge has had the same reaction. Oh. Myyyy. Yum!! So creamy and sweet.
