Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Oreo Fudge

Last month with everything going on at home I was unable to join in on March’s peanut butter bash. Determined not to miss out again, I set about coming up with something for April’s bash way back in the beginning of March. Which is super organised for me. But considering all the stress of March it was a really good thing I did and what I came up with was this super duper easy peasy Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Oreo Fudge. Unfortunately everyone else has had a terrible month as well. So it’s just Gina and me this month but be sure to check out her amazing blondies at the end of the post 😀

No Candy Thermometer!

The really great thing about this homemade peanut butter chocolate swirl Oreo fudge is there is no need for any special equipment and there is no need for a candy thermometer 😅 I know a lot of people stay away from candy making because they dread using a thermometer. The only equipment you will need is a bowl, a wooden spoon and a microwave. Thats it, I promise and after just a few minutes work you will have a tray of fabulous homemade fudge. Ok you will have to wait a while for it to set in the fridge but at least you can relax with you feet up and a glass of a little something 😉

So what have we got in here then? Firstly and most importantly we have some smooth creamy peanut butter, a little unsalted butter a drop or 2 of vanilla extract a sprinkle of sea salt (I just love that salty sweet combination) some icing  (powdered) sugar and some Reeses peanut butter minis and to complete this months challenge some peanut butter Oreo’s.

Chocolate Swirl.

To achieve the chocolate swirl and to up the peanut butter content even more I added some Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Minis to this fudge. I guess they don’t need to be the mini ones, regular ones will work just as well as they are chopped up anyway. I just happened to have a bag of the mini ones in the cupboard. Anyway, because the fudge is still really warm when you come to add them in they essentially melt into it. Creating a lovely chocolaty swirl throughout the fudge instead of just chocolate chunks. Pretty and delicious, a real win win if you ask me 😁

Smooth and creamy like traditional fudge this is a really great cheaters fudge to make and so much easier. For those of you that are a little more adventurous I do have a more traditional Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge Recipe if you wish to give it a go. But this is a wonderful no thermometer alternative and who can resist all these wonderful flavours and textures? Smooth and Creamy, sweet and salty and smooth and crunchy. Yummy 😍

Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Oreo Fudge is an easy one bowl no candy thermometer fudge. A few simple ingredients and a microwave create this creamy sweet homemade fudge.
Recipe type: Candy / Sweets
Cuisine: American
Serves: 64 squares
  • 200 grams smooth peanut butter (3/4 cup)
  • 113 grams unsalted butter - cut into chunks (1 stick)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 450 grams icing / powdered sugar (3 cups)
  • 85 grams Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Minis - chopped up (1/2 cup)
  • 10 Peanut Butter Oreo's - broken up into small bits
  1. Line an 8x8 inch square tine with foil or baking parchment. Making sure there is an overhang for easy extraction.
  2. Prepare all your ingredients, weigh or measure them out. Chop up your butter, peanut butter cups and break your Oreo's up into bits. You will need to work relatively fast and having everything at hand makes it so much easier.
  3. In a medium sized microwave safe bowl melt your peanut butter and unsalted butter together in 30 second blasts on high. To fully melt mine took 90 seconds, stir them together.
  4. Stir in the vanilla and sea salt.
  5. Add in the icing sugar, stir quickly to bring it all together to a soft pliable dough. It will still be warm and this is what you want.
  6. Quickly throw in your chopped up peanut butter cups and stir them through the fudge mixture, because it is still pretty warm they should start to melt and become all swirled into the fudge.
  7. Mix in half of the broken peanut butter Oreo's.
  8. Spoon the mixture into your prepared tin and flatten it down either using your hand or the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the remains broken Oreo pieces over the top and very gently press them into your fudge.
  9. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to chill and fully set.
  10. Kept in the fridge in an airtight container this fudge will keep for 2 weeks.
Once measured out I always sieve my icing sugar as I find it easier to mix in but this is not a necessary step just a handy one if you own a sieve.

  3. I, too, shy away from using a thermometer (partially because I don’t want to buy one!) so I love that this recipe doesn’t require it. And are there two better ingredients in this world than Oreos and peanut butter?! Yum!
