First, there is this fudge.

Man, I know the name is obnoxious, but it is crazy good. It’s sweet, peanutty, chocolatey and salty. Perfect combo for the week before Christmas.Loaded Peanut Butter Chocolate Covered Potato Chip Dulce De Leche Fudge (+ A KitchenAid Giveaway) | halfbakedharvest.com

This fudge is made of a base of dulce de leche, sweetened condensed milk, a touch of peanut butter and lots of chocolate. You guys, I made this fudge yesterday. I made two pans, gave one away and the other is completely gone. It is so good that today’s planned post got bumped.

Fudge – in for the win!

I was reading this gorgeous post yesterday and a light bulb went off in my head. I must use some dulce de leche before Christmas is over.

If you are unfamiliar with dulce de leche it is caramelized sweetened condensed milk and man, it is so good. Typically it is sold right next to the sweetened condensed milk. If for some reason you cannot not find it, swap in sweetened condensed milk or make your own dulce de leche by simmering sweetened condensed milk on the stove for four hours.

And the toppings?

Reese’s, Hershey’s Kisses and potato chips. Yep, I should have just called these fatty fudge, but my friend Naomi already made fatty bars, so I am leaving the awesome name to her!

Hey, it is the week before Christmas and these are one hundred percent acceptable! Plus, they are SO easy. No bake and done in under twenty minutes!

Ingredients

  • 20 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 (13.4 ounce) can dulce de leche divided, may sub 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk about half a can
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Hershey's chocolate kisses chopped
  • 1/2 cup mini Reeses chopped
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate melted, divided
  • 1 cup ruffled potato chips

Instructions

  • Line a 8×8 pan with wax or parchment paper.
  • Add semi-sweet chocolate, 3/4 of the can of dulch de leche (leaving 1/2 cup in the can) to a double boiler, and melt completely. Once melted, remove from heat and slowly add in sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter and vanilla extract, stirring with a large spatula until mixed. The chocolate will be thick. Mixture is going to get super thick but slowly stir and just fold the chocolate mixture over until combined. Use the spatula or a large spoon to spread the chocolate into the pan. It will be very thick, just try and spread as evenly as you can. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.
  • Melt the dark chocolate in the microwave on 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth. This takes me about 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  • Remove the pan from the fridge. Pour 3/4 of the dark chocolate over the fudge. Using the back of a spoon, spread it evenly over the top of the fudge. Immediately cover it with the chopped Reese's and chopped Hershey's kisses. Take the remaining dulce de leche and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds. Let cool for three minutes and then drizzle over the top of the candy. Add the potato chips on top of top of the candy (crushing them if you would like). Now grab the remaining melted chocolate and drizzle over the potato chips. Let set in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the fudge into 16 squares.

  1. I would love to climb into a time machine and spend Christmas with my mother and father. Both at the same time. He passed when I was 3 and mom has been gone since my youngest was 2. To hear them laugh together and to get sandwiched inside one big hug would be the best Christmas present ever, forever. I miss them so.

  2. All I want for Christmas! Is time to spend making memories with my family. I love making cookies with my kids! Merry Christmas!

  3. I can’t wait to make and bake cookies and treats!! We’re doing a “homemade” Christmas and ALL gifts MUST be homemade… it’s forcing us all to tap in to our creative voices!

    I can’t wait to make this fudge with my mom and sister!

  4. I know this is a little gaggy, but I just want my husband to be happy at work. I wish they would treat him better and be less idiotic every day.

  5. What I am looking forward to most this holiday season, is to have my daughter experience her first Christmas and to pig out on food( . .and really, who doesn’t look forward to that!)

  6. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Tieghan, thanks for all the wonderful recipes and ideas you post.
    What I’d like for Christmas is to win this KitchenAid Stand Mixer for my grandma who always wanted one growing up but could never afford one. That and to be able to take her to the restaurant in the CN tower located in Toronto.

  7. Merry Christmas and a happy new year Tieghan, thanks for all the wonderful recipes and ideas.
    What I’d like for Christmas is to either with this KitchenAid stand mixer for my grandma who loves to bake or be able to take her to a fancy restaurant in the CN tower located in Toronto.

  8. What I want for Christmas is to be able to take my grandma to a nice fancy place to eat in the CN tower in Toronto.

  9. Great question..what I want most I can’t have..in all seriousness I want/need quiet a few material things..but, need clarity in decision that need to be made, a job, and family that can get along..thanks..sorry, if that seems like a downer post..it isn’t. 🙂 Merry Christmas.

  10. I was TOTALLY done with all my Christmas baking until I saw this post!! Just add it to my many things to do tonight!
    Merry Christmas!!
    Oh, I asked for some Salt Soap from Origins! Love it!

  11. This recipe has inspired me to actually brave the grocery store two days before Christmas in order to buy the ingredients to make this!

  12. I am really hoping for a new mixer and new pots and pans. But I will happy just getting extra time with my kids and first grandbaby.

  13. What I want the most for Christmas is for my mom to get better! She has fallen terribly ill. This recipe is fantastic! Will be making.

  14. What I want most for Christmas is my family to have health and happiness for the new year. And, peace for the world, would be nice!

  15. first of all, these look amazing. seriously drool-worthy. sweet and salty is the best ever.
    secondly, I want safe travels and fun memories this season for Christmas!

  16. I would love to be able to have a great big christmas morning with all my family like how it was when i was younger.

  17. What do I want most for Christmas… For my Quincy (Dachshund) not to have to have a C-section on Christmas Day :@

  18. What do I want for Christmas? My bills to be paid off and my daughter to find a job when she graduates from college in May!

  19. I would like an embroidery sewing machine. I’m looking at the fudge recipe and trying to figure out how to adjust since I’m allergic to chocolate but use carob and to potatoes but I’m eating ranch dip from coconut milk on sweet potato chips so it just might work!

  20. MmMM. Hits all the major food groups! Dulche de leche, potato chips and chocolate. Will have to make this for a work pot luck. Thanks.

  21. As a SAHM, I want one full uninterrupted day to myself. I know it’s completely selfish but a girl can dream. 😉

  22. The home we put an offer on… Hoping Santa will ask the Seller to accept our final offer on our dream home!! Oh please Santa!!!

  23. For material things, number one on my list is a Kitchenaid Mixer. Other than that, just to have my family happy and healthy 🙂

  24. OMG!!! these sound so good and I love that you used pretzel crisps instead regular pretzels. Oh, I would also love to have a KitchenAid Mixer 😉

    1. OOPS!!! Picture me blushing, been looking at so many recipes of yours this morning I got them mixed up lol. The Potato Chip Fudge looks yummy too and reminds me of some my Aunt used to make. Still would like a KitchenAid mixer 😉

  25. This Christmas, I just want to see everyone open and love the presents that I got for them. It makes me so much happier to give than to receive presents (although I wouldn’t mind getting this mixer for Christmas!).

  26. I would love a pair of Carson flats by Frye, but I honestly just want everyone to have a good Christmas. I want the homeless to have a home to go to, the sick to be healthy, the poor to be able to pay their bills, the hungry to be fed, every child to wake up to a toy under the tree, all the shelter pets to be adopted, grudges to be forgotten, families to come together, and most importantly, for us all to remember what Christmas is truly about. 🙂

  27. i want WARM WEATHER. oh my goodness living in new england is such a drag. i’ve lived here my whole life and i’m still not used to it! i would love some sunshine!

  28. I don’t mean to sound redundant – but I so dream of a KitchenAid Mixer Christmas this year to enhance my baking love!

  29. a ring. more specifically, a big blingy ring on the ring finger of my left hand. too bad my BF doesn’t read this blog 🙂

  30. What would I like form Christmas?? This year in particularly that is an extremely loaded question. I would love to carry on the tradition of my dad surprising me at my door step in California from his home in New Hampshire but that one is out of the question this year for the fact that he has adopted three little boys who’s mother decided that its no longer her responsibility to raise them. I know they need him over there more than I do. I would also love an opportunity to follow my dream and go to culinary school and start my journey of opening my own bakery but for financial reasons that wont be possible just yet. Though it is bitter sweet I must ad since ill be enrolling in community college to obtain my social workers degree and start a career in child protective services. That is my plan of action to save the money from that work until I have enough to start my bakery. An amazing Christmas gift this year would be all of these plans falling into place so I can get a start on helping kids in need of love and eventually tummies in need of pastries. 🙂

  47. My main Christmas wish is less stress for the folks I love, and after I hook them up with some of this bark, I’m pretty sure they’ll be a little bit more chill. Then I hope I get some comfy sweats so that I can eat all the sweet things and not have to think about the end-of-day button unsnap. lol

    thanks for all the amazing recipes, i really enjoy your writing style as well.

  50. Well to be truthful I do not celebrate Christmas but that doesn’t mean I don’t like getting free stuff!!! 🙂 Your recipes are always to die for. Today I am drooling over your classic Lasagna.

  51. I want a job, haha. I graduated with my PhD but am now3 unemployed until I secure one. That would be the best present I could get.

  52. That fudge looks killer! I need to make a batch of some variation before Christmas. Hmmm….this Christmas I am hoping for a dresscoat! The michelin-man parka needs a few days off.
    Thanks Tieghan for the great post and giveaway!

  53. For Christmas, I want to have a blast with friends I rarely see! Also a pan of that fudge. That would be pretty awesome.

  54. We’re scaling back on Christmas gifts this year so I really don’t have much on my wish list. I do hope I get a new MP3 player–and would love to win this gorgeous mixer! Thank you so much for the chance.

  55. We are having a very simple Christmas, and I really only want there to be peace in the world, especially for all the children in the world.

  56. This Christmas I am asking the rents for a new windshield for my car… but honestly, I am dying for just a little time off from school and some quality time with family!

  57. I know it sounds weird, but the one thing I want for Christmas is an eagle onesie. Like pajamas. Now I’m embarrased.

  58. These look AMAZING. I love chocolate and potato chips!

    As for Christmas, I’m hoping Santa brings me a Foodsaver so I can keep my fresh veggies from my CSA fresh longer, or frozen and not freezer burnt to be used in the colder months.

  59. All I want for Christmas this year is for my family to be happy an healthy. We’ve had a few serious heath issues this year.

  61. While I did give a Christmas list of various I truly do get more joy in giving! This fudge looks amazing, i love the salty/sweet combo!

  62. I just want couple days off when it’s just me and my husband making cookies, playing games and watching TV without leaving the house 🙂

  63. For Christmas, I’d like most to spend time relaxing and hanging out with my family. Of course this mixer would also be a great gift!

  64. After all the cookies I have eaten over the course of this week, I can hardly look at these, LOL! But it looks sooooo good Tieghan! Seriously beautiful work!

  65. I would love a laptop, our computer died on us last summer & pulling the internet up on my smartphone isn’t cutting it anymore.

  66. New to your blog and I can tell I’m going to get lost here for a few hours : ) What I’d like most for Christmas is a date night with my hubby!

  67. I love all the cooks which was attended by yourself, but I have a simple question, how do you maintain your weight?!!

  68. This Christmas I’m visiting my boyfriend in the US! So I’ll be getting what I really want, to be with him and his family that I love. 🙂 I’m from France and I’ve been reading your blog since October, and I have to say I’m always eager to see the recipe you post everyday. It must be tremendous work to come up with such amazing ideas, and I really look up to you. Hope you go a long way!

  69. holy jeebus this fudge looks amazing. i’ve got a batch to make, and i might just have to give this recipe a whirl. at the very least, i might just end up putting potato chips on the plain batch, because i’m a sucker for the salty/sweet thing. (who am i kidding, i’m gonna end up with five different batches of fudge before the holiday’s over…)

    for christmas? man, all i want are practical things, including a steady source of income. living on friends’ charity and scattered commission work and pure dumb luck is getting kind of old. but for now, i’ve got good friends and a kitchen in which to make candy, so i guess the holiday’s gonna turn out pretty okay.

  70. I want a bigger kitchen! The other thing I wanted was a day off, but I finally got it, so I’m still hoping for the bigger kitchen 😉

  71. My biggest holiday wish is for better health- 2013 was tough for me…but boy, that mixer is a close 2nd!!

  72. Oh my goodness. I want this fudge for Christmas. It looks incredible. And, of course, crossing my fingers for the KtchenAid! Dream come true. 🙂 But in all actuality, I’m honestly just looking forward to being with my family as the best gift this Christmas. I just did a 6 month internship in Arizona and I haven’t seen my family (until I got home today!!!) since my college graduation 6 months ago. So it will be sweet time. But we need to know what you’re most wanting/looking forward to for Christmas!

  73. For Christmas this year I wish someone would make an anonymous purchase of a little bakery in my name. I just want to own my own bakery! Is that too much to ask?

  74. For Christmas I want to have a safe flight home to see my family. And have some healthy and/or delicious food! Ideally both 🙂

  75. I don’t really want anything except to have a nice Christmas Day with my family. That fudge looks awesome, I just want to face plant right into that!!

  76. I don’t have a real holiday list this year, but I would love a Kitchen Aid mixer for Christmas or an iPad. Also I would happily receive some of this fudge as a gift!

  77. I can’t wait to go home and finally spend some time with my family!

    Also chocolate and potato chips. What a delicious combo.

  78. As far as presents go, this mixer would be amazing. In general, I just really want to grow in Christ, along with my friends and family:)

  79. I would LOVE a new windbreaker and some cook books! I really can’t even wait to make this recipe. I’ve had chocolate covered potato chips from Malley’s Chocolate and they are to die for

  80. This Christmas, all I want is to be able to have a day full of happiness, laughter, and love with my family. I don’t get to go home very often, so when I do, I cherish each and every moment. I also wish for a fabulous new year, full of life’s adventures and blessings!

  81. You just gave me a great idea for a cookie swap I’m doing. Salty Snack Studded Fudge…now I just need to pick my toppings….chips, honey roasted peanuts, sunflower seeds, mini pb ritz, pretzels? Thanks!!!

  82. This potato chip and choc combo sounds incredible. If this fudge doesn’t qualify as rich, I don’t know what does! I bet the dulce de leche and SCM and chocolate make the best fudge. Thumbs up Tieghan!

  83. Gosh, for Christmas this year, I wish for a peaceful Christmas dinner with all of my lunatic family! Happy Holidays one and all.

  84. I want to be home for Christmas with my family (although I know that it won’t happen)! But a nice Skype session with them on Christmas morning will suffice 🙂 Also, I’d really love a KitchenAid mixer 🙂

  85. Besides my family spending time together, I would love a kitchen aid mixer to make food prep for of them easier!

  86. This Christmas, the top thing on my list is a dehydrator! I can’t wait to make homemade kale chips :).

  87. I really want a unicorn with rainbow hair for Christmas (a real unicorn), otherwise, a Kitchenaid Mixer will do (so sick of mixing by hand)!!!

  88. I would love for this speed of light stressed out society to slow down, meditate on goodness and kindness and peace and let us have a true time of spirituality and counting our blessings as we have been given by our Creator to share with all.

  89. I am really hoping for a plane ticket to Colorado so I can go skiing again with my amazing friends and fiancé!

  90. I’m hoping for a gift certificate to a rock climbing gym so I can work off all of the calories I plan on ingesting this season! And cuz rock climbing is awesome.

  91. I want everyone to: be deeply loved and deeply loving, not worry about anything about themselves or others, have food and a home and a family living where all are safe. be able to have what they need – and a few wants.

    Merry Christmas to you all.

  92. Well I just got a new job so truthfully, I got what I wanted. Now, a nice, relaxing holiday spent with those I love would be the best ending to 2013!!

  93. Girl these are amazing! First, potato chips + chocolate is an amazing salty/sweet combo that I love. I’ve done it in cookies and I’ve done bars made with Combos cheese filled pretzels but never chips in bars/brownies. This fudge looks epic. Want it! Pinned! And nice giveaway!!

  94. I just may be getting what I want for Christmas… A little early so I don’t want to jinx it.. but the entire family including a new great grandson all coming here on the same day. I so want to make this fudge and some lady in the comments mentioned mock toffee bars so I need to find that recipe.. My favorite thing to hear on Christmas, “I can’t eat another bite!!”

  95. For Christmas, I want to be able to create new and fun holiday memories with my husband as it is our first married Christmas. 🙂

  96. I have a cookie cutter obsession, so of course they are number one on my list! And I wish I had creativity like yours. That fudge looks amazing!

  97. This looks insane, in a good way! Looking forward to a quiet Christmas with family, and spending some quality time with daughter who will be home for the holidays!

  98. I want peace, happiness and health for everyone this Christmas. I would like for my husband’s family to have peace and happiness since we are celebrating their first Christmas since his brother’s untimely/unexpected passing.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe & good luck to all that entered. May everyone have a blessed Christmas & New Year.

    Thanks for sharing this fudge recipe, I’m going to try it asap. I am really excited that it doesn’t contain marshmallows!

  107. Oh my goodness. This is one serious crazy fudge. Love the idea of potato chips for that salty sweet goodness. Yummy
