The flavor and foundation of this recipe are peanut butter. This recipe doesn’t work as well with natural peanut butter (the kind that separates as it sits in the pantry).

Both smooth and chunky peanut butter is acceptable. Use unsalted butter and season it with a little salt.

In this recipe, we use powdered sugar instead of regular sugar since we find that it blends in better and produces smoother fudge.

Although Mini Peanut Butter Cups work exceptionally well in this recipe, you may substitute any other peanut butter treat. Use the pieces of a larger PB cup if you don’t have small cups.

Although optional, a chocolate chip drizzle adds flavor and beauty to the fudge.
