Melting the milk chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and stirring until smooth is all part of the recipe. The last thing that you want to have in fudge is chunks of any kind of ingredients. Take your time mixing together the peanut butter mixture before pouring it onto the parchment paper to start firming up.

There’s a reason that my boys are crazy about this recipe and it’s because it’s so good and packed full of chocolate and Reese’s Pieces! Who doesn’t love those crunchy little candies?!

  7. Slightly push down the toppings into the fudge with your fingers.
  8. Pop in the fridge for at least 2 hours or until firm. Remove from pan, cut, and enjoy!
