Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to prep your pan first! You do not want your hot fudge sitting starting to form while you prep your pan. 
  • This can easily be adapted to any holiday by swapping the color of the M&Ms. 
  • Want to make this throughout the entire year? Use the variety M&Ms. 
  • You can omit the M&Ms if you prefer. 
  • You do not want to use natural peanut butter. Be sure you use a well-known brand like JIF. 
  • Be sure to use butter. Margarine and butter are not the same. Swapping the butter out will change the texture completely.
