"Flying back from Hawaii this Thanksgiving - and sat by the nicest couple that shared their snacks and a recipe for fudge to die for! He asked me to call it Fat Pete's Fudge if I got it published in honor of him! Thanks to Fat Pete!"

  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Set aside.
  2. Bring butter, sugar, and evaporated milk to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Boil for 5 to 7 minutes, then remove from heat and quickly stir in the marshmallow cream, chocolate candy, and chocolate chips, until the chocolate has melted and is fully incorporated. Pour chocolate mixture into the prepared baking pan. Dot the top of the fudge with peanut butter. Swirl a knife through the fudge and peanut butter to create a marble effect. Cover and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into squares for serving.

My husband, who is our resident kitchen disaster made this fudge himself and it turned out great!

This stuff is awesome! It is so easy to make compared to other candy recipes I've tried, it feels almost like cheating - I just made a half-batch in about 10 minutes yesterday while entertainin...

If you like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, then this super easy fudge is for you! So smooth and delicious! I would rate this 10 if I could!!!

So easy! I halved this recipe and put it in an 11 x 7 pan---worked great. The peanut butter is a must! (even though it is hard to swirl) I will definitely make this again.
