Baked Fudge with Peanut Butter Cups
This Baked Fudge with Peanut Butter Cups is one of those easy recipes you can whip up when you have unexpected company.
You may remember I made Baked Fudge earlier this year. I made a second batch the same day but added some peanut butter cups for fun.
It was one of those simple things we all do. Toss a few extras in a recipe and see what happens. This was pure magic. Peanut butter and chocolate just go so well together. It's a match made in heaven.
I had seen The Pioneer Woman's Baked Fudge and fell in love with it. So, I had to try it. I'm so glad I did. It was so easy to make and absolutely delightful to nosh on.
This is one of those recipes that you obsess about. Add a little of this, add a little of that.
It becomes an obsession. Much like my obsession with The Walking Dead. Since I first started watching it a few short months and I've ripped through the series 4 times. Yes, 4 times.
This show is ruining my life. Yet I just want more. And more and more. Just like this Baked Fudge with Peanut Butter Cups.
I got carried away and started eating them before realizing I should be taking photos. Seriously man, you think I'd learn. Luckily I stopped myself in time to get a few decent shots for the blog.
This girl loves simple recipes. They free up my time for things like The Walking Dead. You know, really super de duper important stuff.

Baked Fudge with Peanut Butter Cups
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- In a mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the eggs until light in colour.
- Now add the white granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat until combined.
- Add the cocoa, flour, butter and extract. Mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
- Add the peanut butter cups and mix slightly.
- Pour the batter into ramekins or small mason jars (good quality so they don't break in the oven) and set those inside a rimmed baking dish. I used a cake pan. Then pour water inside the baking dish (but NOT in the ramekins or mason jars) until it comes up about halfway.
- Pop in the oven for about 40 to 50 minutes, they should be a crust on the top that is crisp but the inside should be firm but still just a tad gooey.
- You can serve these hot, and they will taste almost like a gooey brownie. Or you can pop them in the fridge to make them firmer and set up. Then they become almost like a soft fudgy pudding.
- Serve with a big old chocolate and peanut butter heavenly smile!
If you make these you should try topping them with ice cream. Seriously good stuff. Or some fresh whipped cream. Absolutely heavenly.
I'm off to get my hair done today. I thought it might be a good idea to be somewhat presentable for Blogher Food this weekend. I'm was going to show up in jammies and unkempt hair but I hear that's not overly appropriate.
I still haven't packed. Or planned to pack. Or made a list of things to pack. Maybe I should make a list of things I should make a list of. Might be a good place to start. But first, I need to finish ALL of the Sons of Anarchy. I better get crack-a-lacking on that.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
