White chocolate chips in a glass bowl

Start by adding the white chocolate chips to a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl.

Next, add the peanut butter to the bowl. Melt the chips in the microwave for about one minute. 

When you take the chips out of the microwave, they may look like they didn’t melt much, but give it a good stir anyway. Most of the time, the chocolate will melt completely once you start stirring. 

If it needs some more melting after you stir, put it back in the microwave and add ten seconds at a time, stirring in between.

I sprayed the tinfoil with non-stick spray before I poured it in so it would be easier to take out.

The recipe turns out to be a bar that is very similar to the taste and texture of delicious fudge.

Take a regular butter knife and place it down in the fudge and gently work it around until you see swirls developing. Keep doing it until you get the desired swirl pattern.
