You are going to love this recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup fudge! It is a perfect Christmas treat recipe! And here are some reasons why…

Reeses' peanut butter cups layering a baking dish on aluminum foil


Do you have milk chocolate chips, a can of sweetened condensed milk, and about 24 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? If yes, then this awesome fudge can be in your near future.

(Here’s a recipe for homemade sweetened condensed milk, if you want to try that out.)

If you’re early enough, during Halloween candy sales, grab a few extra bags of Reese’s peanut butter cups just so you can make this fudge! Or I suppose you could try to save (or trade for) a bunch of the Reese’s from the kids’ Halloween candy hauls.

Or hey, if you’re feeling especially domestic, you could even make your own peanut butter cups with this recipe.

Pouring sweetened condensed milk onto chocolate chips

For the best results, it is a good idea to use high-quality chocolate chips in this recipe. I personally recommend Guittard milk chocolate chips – they are pretty much the best milk chocolate chips ever.

Regular price seems to be about $4 a bag or more. When I find them on sale for less, during fall or Christmas baking season sales, I stock up on several bags and stash them in my freezer.

Final Thoughts

A thick bottom layer of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, followed by a delicious layer of chocolate fudge, topped off with more chopped Reese’s. This treat is a huge hit any time and perfect as a Christmas treat recipe too!

  • 8x8 pan
  • Medium bowl


  • 24 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups unwrapped and divided
  • 3 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk


  • Line an 8x8 pan (or 9x9 works too) with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place 16 whole peanut butter cups in a single layer, lining the bottom of the prepared dish. Set aside.
  • In a medium or large microwave-safe bowl, mix together the chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on half power, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and melted, about 2 minutes. Pour the thick chocolate mixture over the Reese's and smooth the top.
  • Chop up the remaining 8 peanut butter cups and press the pieces into the top of the fudge. Let cool to room temperature, at least an hour, then refrigerate until set.
  • Remove the fudge from the pan by lifting the foil out, cut into squares, and serve.

Recipe Notes

Serving size will depend on how you cut the fudge. I like to cut it into 6x8, or 6x6 for larger pieces.
