How do I store Reese’s fudge?
You can store your cooled and set peanut butter fudge inside an airtight container on the counter for up to a week. The fudge tastes best when freshest and may dry out the older it becomes, so it’s important to eat it quickly. You can also store it in the fridge or freezer for a longer storage solution if you don’t think you can eat it fast enough.
How can I add chocolate to this fudge for peanut butter and chocolate fudge?
Switch out about half of the peanut butter chips with milk chocolate chips and follow the recipe as directed. The coloration will change and the flavors should be similar to biting into Reese’s cups with every tasty bite!
