Double Decker Peanut Butter Fudge

I have never been so happy to say TGIF in my life before! It feels like this week has been dragging on so long because all I could think about was getting away to my cottage for the long weekend. I am so excited that Friday is finally here!!

We are actually leaving in just a few short hours but I figured I could squeeze a blog post in quickly before we headed out. It wouldn't be fair of me to leave you guys hanging on a Friday, right??

I made this fudge last week and the recipe made so much fudge, yet somehow it had still completely disappeared by Monday morning...

I was surprised when I read this recipe. Most fudge recipes I've made only make a little 8x8 pan, but this one made a whopping 9x13 pan, so needless to say, there was a hefty amount of fudge! Luckily, because it made so much, I could share it around with friends and family (goodness know I definitely don't need to be eating all that...and neither does the boyfriend!)

I hope you all enjoy this recipe, and have a good Canada Day Weekend!

Double Decker Peanut Butter Fudge
Prep Time: 20mins      Yields 35-40 pieces
2 cups peanut butter chips, divided
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 (7oz) jar marshmallow creme
1 1/2 cups (12oz can) evaporated milk
1/4 cup butter

1) Line a 9x13 inch pan with foil. Set aside.
2) Place 1 cup of peanut butter chips in a medium sized bowl, set aside. In a separate bowl and blend cocoa, melted butter, and vanilla. Add remaining one cup peanut butter chips to bowl and mix. Set aside.
3) In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, marshmallow creme, evaporated milk, and 1/4 cup butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it reaches a rolling boil. Boil and stir for 5 minutes.
4) Remove from hear and immediately pour half of sugar mixture over peanut butter chips, and the other half over the chocolate coated peanut butter chips. Stir both bowls until the chips are completely melted and smooth.
5) Pour the mixture with just peanut butter chips into the bottom of your prepared pan, spreading evenly. Then pour the chocolate mixture on top of the peanut butter layer, again spreading evenly. Cool until firm. Cut into squares and refrigerate in an airtight container.
