How To Make This Reese’s Pieces Fudge Recipe
STEP ONE: In a medium bowl, combine the chocolate cake mix and the powdered sugar. Set aside.

STEP THREE: Once well mixed, add in the ¾ cup of Reese’s Pieces.
STEP FOUR: Pour the fudge mixture into an 8×8 square pan, gently pressing it down with your hands.
Line your square baking pan with parchment paper or foil to make it easy to pop out of the container once your fudge has set.
STEP FIVE: Sprinkle the extra Reese’s Pieces on top.
To make it easier to cut later, you can lightly score the top of the fudge with a sharp knife before chilling.
STEP SIX: Place the fudge in the fridge to set for 3-4 hours. Remove and cut into squares.
