White Chocolate Peanut Butter Snickers Fudge

Creamy white chocolate peanut butter fudge topped with Snickers bars. 
Simply delicious.....and deliciously simple to make!


Way back when I was in high school, long before I was a blogger or a baker or a mother or even an adult, I worked at a group home for adults with disabilities. I was responsible for an insane amount of important stuff, from giving meds to giving baths to getting people dressed and fed and driving them, in a giant van, in their wheelchairs, wherever they needed to go. When I think back on it, it seems almost impossible that I actually spent nearly two years there. Don't get me wrong - I loved it - but I was only in high school! (Not your typical senior year job!)



I can remember exactly how it all started. Sometime during my junior year, I signed up to volunteer at a summer camp for kids with disabilities. At that point, I thought I might want to go into special ed as a career, and I felt like the camp would be a good way for me to test the waters. As I was signing up, I found out there was another camp, for adults, a week later. And they were in need of volunteers....so I decided to give it a go. I was convinced I would LOVE the kid camp....and was hopeful I could tolerate the adults....but, wouldn't you know, at the end of the two weeks, it was the opposite! So when it came time to find a placement for one of my classes senior year, I decided to seek out a placement with adults.....and my time at Lander House began. Honestly, I could write an entire book about my experiences there. But for now, let me explain what....if anything....this story has to do with fudge!!


Well....it has nothing to do with fudge, at least not directly. But it has to do with the way life takes us in a direction that is sometimes different than what we expected! Honestly, when I first started blogging, I thought Lemon Tree Dwelling would be mainly a home improvement blog. And then I realized that home improvement didn't really capture my attention as much as crafts and recipes. And when I started getting more into recipes, I thought I would mostly post dinner recipes....because that's what I thought I was good at. But then I started coming up with more and more dessert recipe, and I realized I really LOVE doing sweets! And as I made and photographed this fudge, and thought about all the sweet ideas I still have floating around in my head, I couldn't help but think back to the time when I was so SURE I wanted to work with those kids....and how wrong I turned out to be.


Anyway.....back to the fudge. I'm in love with it! It's smooth, creamy, and rich....just the way fudge should be. And it has the sweetness of white chocolate mixed with the saltiness of peanut butter, which creates a nougat-like flavor that is to die for....especially when you put the real thing on top! And best of all, it's the easiest fudge I've ever made! Which proves that I'm not always wrong about the way that things will turn out.....especially when it comes to delicious sweets.

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Snickers Fudge
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
12 oz. meltable white chocolate (I used Vanilla Candiquik)
1/3 c. peanut butter
1 c. chopped Snickers bars

1. In medium saucepan, heat sweetened condensed milk slightly.
2. Add white chocolate and peanut butter and heat at medium-low temperature, stirring constantly, until white chocolate is completely melted.
3. Pour into greased 6x9 inch or similar sized pan.
4. Top with chopped Snickers, pressing them down gently into the top of the fudge.
5. Refrigerate until firm.

Enjoy!
