A perfect way to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day (aka my favorite day of the year) each slice has a perfect balance of sweet and salty.

what’s in this peanut butter fudge?

So glad you asked because holy cow you guys, these delicious little peanut butter fudge bites are so much easier to make than you think. I quickly melted together Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk , peanut butter and white chocolate and poured it over my pretzel crust. I let it chill in the freezer and then that’s it!

And this sweet peanut butter fudge compliments the pretzels and chocolate like you wouldn’t believe. It’s so good, like hands down the best fudge I’ve ever had.

So here’s what you need to make this peanut butter fudge for yourself…

  • pretzels (gluten free if necessary)
  • graduated sweetener (you can use any kind you like)
  • butter
  • Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • peanut butter, smooth (I used natural but you can also use something like Jiffy)
  • white chocolate chips (I used an all natural and healthier kind but regular white chocolate chips will work perfectly!)
  • dark chocolate chips

That’s it!
