Have you seen the new Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites? They are delicious and the prefect addition to your favorite desserts… or right out of the bag. I won’t judge you no matter how you eat them! I decided to use them in a cool surprise treat for a friend!
So the common cold has been going round again. I really thought we were past that… but I was wrong! I have a friend that has kids that are the same age as my older two and both of her kiddos came down with a cold on the same day. We all know that it’s hard having one sick kid at home, but having two is a nightmare!
My good friend is running on empty and I know she could use a little cheering up! She has a sweet tooth as I do and she loves peanut butter and caramel so I had an idea to make an old favorite I’ve been making for years even more special by adding Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites to it! I’m excited to introduce you all to my No-Bake Milky Way Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Fudge! Try saving that 5 times fast!
This is one of those recipes that you can easily whip up in 5 minutes. Let it set for another 30 and BAM! You’ve got fudge in no time!
With only 3 ingredients there is not much to it… and that’s another reason I love it!
This sweet treat starts with just a can of vanilla frosting. I’ve made it using homemade frosting but it doesn’t get as solid as I like, so I just buy a regular can of frosting at Walmart and use that. It works perfectly!
Next, empty the frosting into a bowl and heat in the microwave for 60 seconds.
Next, you are going to add a cup of peanut butter. Please do not use the all natural one. I love all natural peanut butter, but it’s too oily and separates too much to use in this. Go for the regular stuff, please!
Now just mix them together till they are nice and smooth. Don’t take too long doing this because the frosting will start to turn back to a solid.
Chop up some Milky Way Simply Caramel Bites…
Spread out the fudge, drop in the bites and sprinkle with some salt…
Let sit for at least 30 minutes and your fudge is done! I hope this becomes a family favorite as it has in our house!
I’m taking these to my friend to give her a little extra energy and to let her know I’m thinking of her… who do you know that could use a little cheering up with this fudge?
