Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups (16 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanuts, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 5 Tbsp Peanut Oil plus more for pan
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp coarse salt

Directions:

  1. With a pastry brush lightly coat a 9-inch square baking pan with Peanut Oil. Line pan with two pieces of parchment paper in both directions, leaving 2 inches of overhang on all sides. Brush parchment with peanut oil as well. Set aside.
  2. Place chocolate in a bowl. In a medium saucepan, combine cream, marshmallows, peanut oil, sugar, and salt over medium-high. Whisk until smooth. It should take about 5 minutes.
  3. Pour mixture into the bowl with the chocolate. Let stand for 1 minute to allow chocolate to melt, then stir until smooth. Fold in the chopped peanuts. Pour into baking pan and refrigerate until set for a minimum of 3 hours. Cut fudge into 1 1/2-inch squares or rectangles. If you’d like, press a peanut into each square before serving or packing.
  4. Keeps for one week in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
