“Spread love as thick as you would peanut butter” <– That’s good advice, I’d say, at least if you love the stuff as much as I do. Creamy, dreamy, and topped in chocolately swirl goodness, this peanut butter fudge is rich in wholesome fats and so seriously delicious. Like my cookie dough fudge and chocolate peppermint fudge recipes, it’s super simple to make – no cooking needed!
Now, before I tell you how to make this decadent goodness, let’s talk about swirl technique. When I first started making swirl fudge, all the instructions I found basically said something like, “Pour the chocolate layer on top and use a toothpick or knife to create a swirl pattern.”
It sounded easy, but my first few attempts didn’t look like I was hoping. Fortunately, it was so yummy I kept on making it, and discovered a really easy method for creating beautiful swirls.
How To Make Pretty Swirls In Fudge
Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Pour the peanut butter fudge layer in the pan.
Step 2: Pour the chocolate layer over the peanut butter layer in a zigzag pattern. I’ve found it’s easiest to do this step if you mix the chocolate layer in a measuring cup so that it’s easy to pour.
Step 3: Pull the knife through the fudge in the direction of the arrows shown.
Step 4: Pull the knife through the fudge in the opposite direction as shown in the arrows, but instead of going in a straight line make a curving motion to create swirls.
Step 5: Chill fudge for about an hour, or until the swirls have set and the fudge is firm enough to slice. Cut into pieces and enjoy or return to the freezer for storage.
