sweet n' salty pb fudge

I discovered this recipe for fudge off of The picture literally called to me, "Pattttttti, bake meeeee." And so I did. It just looked so SO good with the chocolate, pretzels, and Oreos layered oh-so-deliciously. The recipe did have a layer of white chocolate on top on the chocolate-pretzel layer, but I decided to replace that with a peanut butter layer. Peanut butter trumps white chocolate any day.

Also, this picture looks sooo OCD to me because the pretzels are lined up so straight. Well, kinda straight. Which reminds me of Mike and his slight OCDness...the guy really likes everything to be in its place, haha. We fondly call it "CDO", though. The letters are all in the right order that way. :)

Mmmm, chopped Oreos go into the peanut butter layer. SUCH DELICIOUS NOM-AGE.

Oreos and peanut butter. Together at last. Up close and personal.

And then smushed all together and placed into the fridge. I'm gonna give some of these to my guinea pig tomorrow....aka Mike. I'm sure he'll like these since he's a big fan of chocolate and peanut butter. No wonder we get along so well. :)

Sweet N' Salty PB Fudge
Altered from Dynamite Cookes and Pretzel Fudge

6 oz. dark chocolate
8 oz. peanut butter chips + 2 generous spoonfuls of peanut butter
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
Oreos, quartered (about 20)
Skinny pretzels

Microwave th dark chocolate with 1/2 the can of condensed milk for 2-3 minutes, or until chocolate is nearly all melted, stirring thoroughly after each minute.

Line an 8x8-inch pan with waxed paper. Spray waxed paper with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the chocolate mixture into pan. Top with pretzels sticks, pressing them slightly into the fudge.

Repeat melting the peanut butter chips + peanut butter with the remaining condensed milk.

Stir chopped Oreos into peanut butter mixture. Spread that on top of the dark chocolate and pretzels.

Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.

Devour. WARNING: These are not for the faint of heart! Super chocolatey and sweet!

I misread the title as "Sweet 'n' Salty Pub Fudge," and immediately started wondering where the magical pub is that serves fudge. To quote Liz Lemon of 30 Rock, "I want to go to there."

Ooh, I love the way it looks in the end. It's pretty artsy.
