I titled both this recipe and the pumpkin butterscotch fudge recipe as “easy”, however if the pumpkin fudge recipe is easy then this recipe for peanut butter nutella swirled fudge is SUPER easy! =) I’ve made nutella fudge before, but when I saw this recipe for peanut butter nutella swirled fudge I was hooked. It didn’t help anything that I was already craving fudge ;). Has anyone else tried fudge made with store-bought canned frosting? I hadn’t until this year, but it is pretty amazing. I know it’s full of crazy, processed ingredients but it does produce some very smooth and creamy fudge. I never buy canned frosting but fudge made with sweetened condensed milk is ridiculously easy too and also incredibly smooth! And I almost always have chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk on hand! #winning There are lots of variations of Nestle’s Foolproof Fudge out there and this is one of the best I’ve tried! I love the combination of the nutella and peanut butter. Sometimes peanut butter can overpower other flavors, but there’s a nice balance between the nutella and peanut butter in this recipe. The best part of all is that you can have fudge in 5 minutes and without a candy thermometer! You can even make it in the microwave if you want. That’s what I did and it worked great. The fudge was very smooth and creamy with a beautiful marbled appearance. If you’re looking for an easy, homemade holiday gift, this would be perfect. Or if you just want to enjoy some delicious fudge, either way. Enjoy!

{Easy} Peanut Butter Nutella Swirled Fudge

1 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk, divided
1 cup bittersweet (or semi-sweet) chocolate chips
1/2 cup nutella

1. Line 8×8 square pan with aluminum foil and spray lightly with nonstick spray.
2. In small microwave safe bowl combine butterscotch chips, peanut butter and half of sweetened condensed milk. In second small microwave safe bowl, combine nutella, chocolate chips, and remaining sweetened condensed milk. Place both bowls in microwave. Microwave for one minute. Stir each bowl. If chips are not fully melted, microwave in additional 30 second intervals until fully melted and smooth. (If you do not have two small bowls that will fit in your microwave at the same time or you have a small microwave, you can use two small sauce pans over medium-low heat.)
3. Working quickly, spoon mixture into prepared pan – alternating between the nutella mixture and the peanut butter mixture. Run a knife through the fudge to swirl. Refrigerate until firm (a couple hours) and cut into squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
