Fabulous Five Minute Chocolate Fudge with Peanut and White Chocolate Swirl

This is the best little recipe to have on hand for a literally five minute throw together dessert candy! It's similar to the little black dress we all have have on hand for that classic romantic night out! I'll be taking this tomorrow night to our 20-30's potluck gathering with our church group.

I've been using this recipe for years and love giving it out at the holidays too (see original recipe below for how to make it into a wreath shape). You can change it up pretty easily - cranberries and walnuts, peanuts and raisins, dates and almonds, or just plain chocolate.

The point is not only is it so easy to make, it also tastes so good! Spend five minutes trying out for yourself!

  • One 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6-ounces butterscotch chips
  • One 14-ounce can fat free sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8-ounces peanuts
  • 6-ounces white chocolate chips

1. Grease a 9x9 square dish with cooking spray.

2. Pour the chocolate and butterscotch chips, condensed milk and vanilla into a medium saucepan. Put the pan on the stove and turn the heat to low.

3. Stir the chips and milk until they melt together, about 3 minutes. Move the pan off the stove and place on a pot holder. Stir in the nuts and white chocolate chips. Pour the fudge into the cake pan.

4. Put the fudge in the fridge and chill until firm. Loosen the sides and bottom of the fudge with a spatula. Cut the fudge into triangles or squares to serve.
