I’m not a huge fan of fudge, I just think I haven’t found the right recipe yet, but this recipe is a cross between fudge and a candy bar, and my family really enjoyed it!

I slightly changed the recipe which I found in an old Ohio State Grange Cookbook.
Here is what you need to make it:
1 cup of peanut butter and chocolate chips mixture
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup party peanuts
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

heat the flavored chips (except 1/4 cup of minis), and the peanut butter, for around a minute, or until everything is partially melted, and can be mixed.
