Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Fudge

 This award winning fudge is made in mere minutes and requires only 4 ingredients!
The secret ingredient is Jif Whipped Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter. It is the perfect creaminess for fudge with the added fall flavor of pumpkin pie spice! I am a big fan of pecans (especially with pumpkin) and I like the added nuttiness and crunch they add to this fudge. You can also lightly toast them before adding. 

*If you can't find the peanut butter, add pumpkin pie spice to creamy whipped peanut butter.
My fudge won 3rd place in the local Christmas Fudge Contest!

Ingredients: 

Makes one 9X13 pan of fudge
  • 24oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (3 cups)
  • 14oz can condensed milk
  • 15oz JIF Whipped Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions:

  1.  In a large microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips and 12 oz of the condensed milk.
  2. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute. Stir, then microwave for another minute. Stir again until creamy.  Microwave for another 30 seconds if needed.
  3. Line a 9X13 pan with parchment paper (leaving an overhang on the sides) and spray with non stick spray.
  4. Pour chocolate into the pan and smooth evenly with a spatula. 
  5.  Add peanut butter to a bowl and stir in remaining 2 oz of condensed milk.
  6. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute. Stir.
  7. Smooth peanut butter on top of the chocolate layer, spreading evenly. 
  8. Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly on top of fudge.
  9. Cover and refridgerate for at least 2 hours. 
  10. Cut into squares and serve.
Only 4 ingredients for a delicious fudge.
 This Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter is my new favorite fall treat! 
The creamy, whipped texture is perfect for fudge.
Mix condensed milk with chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. 
Heat on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir then heat for another minute. Stir again until smooth.
Spread into a parchment paper lined and greased 9X13 baking dish. Or you can use a disposable aluminum pan and spray it with non stick spray. 
Now melt the peanut butter. It's already whipped so it doesn't need much. I just add the remaining condensed milk (about 1/4 cup) and the peanut butter to a bowl and heat on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir and that's it! 
Spread peanut butter evenly on top of chocolate layer. 
Top with chopped pecans.
*Optional you can lightly toast the pecans first.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before cutting. 
Easy peasy layered holiday fudge! Bet you can't eat just one {or two!}
