Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Fudge RecipeThis four-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe comes courtesy my friend Aimée.  She gave it to me when we were very young kids.  Kinda cute, I think.

My mom has been making this recipe practically weekly ever since.  No exaggeration!

She recalls that Aimée said it was a recipe from the Sesame Street show.  Aimée doesn’t remember that part. 😉Chocolate Peanut Butter FudgeSimply by using a baking dish instead of a cookie sheet, I’ve turned this incredible peanut butter cookie recipe into a crazy, yummy fudge recipe.  And oh my — watch out — is it good!

Peanut butter is packed with protein, you know.  It’s good to keep that healthy thought in mind if you become addicted to these!

I love that these don’t contain any flour . . . because they have become my gluten-free, 7-year-old son’s favorite dessert!

I hope I’ve inspired a weekend cooking project for you!

And this is all you need . . .

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: about 24
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups crunchy, salted peanut butter
  • 3-1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a square 8 x 8-inch baking pan, use a large fork to combine the egg whites with the sugar. Then blend in the peanut butter and 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Use a small, flat-bottomed spatula to smooth out the top. Then evenly pour the remaining 2-1/4 cups of chocolate chips on the top.
  3. Place the pan in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and immediately smooth the melted chocolate chips with the same small spatula. Let this set up at room temperature for at least 2 hours -- ideally overnight -- before cutting. To speed it up, you can put it in the refrigerator for an hour. It's still delicious if you cut it before, just soft and a bit messy!

      It’s crunchy, salted peanut butter. I use Trader Joe’s brand, but you can use your favorite! 🙂
