Double Reese’s Cup Fudge is the best and easiest dessert on planet earth.

You’ll be especially happy with this fudge if you dream of chocolate rivers and reese’s peanut butter cup trees.

I mean, how can you not like those things? .. I have a hard time understanding those people who don’t like chocolate.

I mean, sometimes breakfast consists of chocolate muffins or chocolate donuts. Lunch is followed by a sweet chocolate snack, and after dinner comes chocolate peanut butter pie or a square of double reese’s cup fudge.

Or two.

But let’s be real, I would suggest cutting the fudge into small squares, you can see in the pictures that even 1 square packs a lot of fudge.
