If you like peanut butter and chocolate – you have got to try these Peanut Butter Fudge Puddles. I am a big fan of peanut butter cookies but add some chocolate and I am in heaven. See for yourself! Try them once, and you’ll be hooked. They are the perfect blend of peanut butter and melt in your mouth fudge.  They are so cute, too! They make great little treats for parties or baby/bridal showers. Your guests will go crazy over them! Add some pizzazz by adding sprinkles or cookie crumbles to the top. They are the perfect little bite-sized treat!


This recipe for a peanut butter cookie is amazing in itself, but add the chocolate fudge center and it is over the top good.  If you want to try some variations you can try substituting the chocolate fudge center for some different fillings.  You can do frosting in the center or a chewy caramel.  We have also added chocolate candy in the center, like little peanut butter cups or Rolos.

    Could you use Nutella to fill these instead of the choc. chip/condensed milk mixture?

    • Shelley says:

      That sounds like a great idea!

  5. Susan Lambrix says:

    I have the same question as Hattie…………..the comment before mine. These look amazing!

    • Echo says:

      You could definitely fill them with Nutella. The consistency and taste of the filling will be obviously different, but they will taste great. I love Nutella!

  11. Vivie Cox says:

    Do these have to be refrigerated because of condensed milk? I’ve alsways wondered about anything that has this ingredient and whether to leave in cookie jar or refrigerate.

    • Echo says:

      I have not kept them in the fridge. I’ve always left them out, but covered in an airtight container.

  12. Sharon says:

    Can you use store bought peanut butter cookie dough for this recipe?

      Yes, using store bought cookie dough would be an easy shortcut on this recipe.

    Do these have to be refrigerated?

      No, they do not need to be refrigerated. I do keep them covered though so they don’t dry out. Thanks for asking!

  14. Sandra says:

    I really want to make this recipe.. But since i`m dutch, i have to recalculate the cups into grams. That is no problem.. but what is the amount of the condensed milk? It says 1 can, but how much is that ?

    • Echo says:

      Hi Sandra, one can of condensed milk is 14 ounces or 396 grams. Thanks for asking!
