Peanut Butter and Jelly Swirled Fudge

Click HERE if you are looking for Showcase Your Talent Thursday



This month the theme for the Improve Challenge hosted by Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker, is Peanut Butter and Jelly.  I really like peanut butter and jelly, with strawberry jam, and still eat it for lunch a lot.  I knew I wanted to make some sort of dessert with peanut butter and jelly and I had so many ideas swirling through my mind.  I finally settled on Peanut Butter and Jelly Fudge.

This fudge was so good.  When I make fudge we usually give a good bit of it away to friends and family.  This time though we hoarded most of this for ourselves.  The swirls of strawberry jelly really added to the peanut butter flavor.  This fudge was AWESOME!!!

I can’t wait to see what everyone else has made!

Other Fudge Recipes:
Peanut Butter and Jelly Swirled Fudge

1 bag peanut butter chips 
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 (7 ounce) jar of marshmallow cream
1 cup evaporated milk 
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/4 cup strawberry jam

1.  Line an 8 x 8 pan with foil.


2.  Place the peanut butter chips in a large-sized heat safe bowl and set aside.

3.  In a heavy 3-quart saucepan, combine the sugar, marshmallow cream, evaporated milk, and butter.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils.  Boil and stir for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and quickly stir in the vanilla.

4.  Working quickly, stir the mixture into the peanut butter chips chips. Once the chips are melted, quickly pour into the 8 x 8 pan.  Then add the strawberry jam in small dollops across the fudge.  Swirl the jelly with a knife throughout the fudge.  Make sure you swirl it so there are not any big spots of jelly.  The jelly will probably sink to the middle as you swirl.  


5.  Refrigerate until completely cool.  To cut flip the fudge over and unpeel the foil.
