Decadent Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Fudge made easily in the microwave. Great for holidays, gift giving or anytime you need a rich peanut butter treat.
Peanut butter lovers rejoice! This fudge only has a few basic ingredients you probably have in your pantry and it microwaves in just 4 minutes…. and then you have to wait FOREVER for it to set like the Easy Chocolate Fudge Recipe
With all of the butter in this recipe, it was so rich that I am glad I added the dark chocolate swirl to balance it out a bit. I had dark chocolate melting wafers on hand, but you could easily use chocolate chips or baking chocolate with a little butter or coconut oil to help it mix smoothly.
Since the mixtures are rather thick and the pieces would eventually be cut rather small, I didn’t really swirl the chocolate and peanut butter like I would for a marble cake. Instead I left the peanut butter layers a bit uneven and then added the chocolate to even it out.
