Easy meal ideas that will bring your family to the table fast!

So, in October and November, I was all like, “I’m going to make more Real Food recipes — recipes that everyone needs in their day to day lives. Easy weeknight dinners, healthier comfort food, that sort of thing.”

But December rolls around and all I want to do is bake. I go to bed and have visions of chocolate and peanut butter and mint and white chocolate and cranberry and caramel and nuts, Mint Chocolate No Bake Cookies and Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Blondies and Cranberry Cake and pies (okay, not pies) and fudge and candies and Grandma’s Candy Popcorn….

And so, forgive me while I act completely irresponsibly this month. ‘Tis the season!

But I figure I’ve got a good number of those easy, healthier dinners in the archives for you so this is okay? I trust you’ll forgive me.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Pinwheels came from an old Taste of Home magazine (yes, I’ve been getting a lot of my inspiration there lately!), but when I read the recipe it just didn’t make sense to me. The measurements just didn’t seem right. So I improvised, as one does, and am totally happy with the results!

My favorite part about this recipe is the flexibility! You can use any kind of chips — dark chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, etc., and mix and match flavors or add extracts like mint or orange to make something totally unique. Plus, they’re easy! And perfect for those holiday baking trays πŸ™‚

  • 1 1/4 cups peanut butter chips
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk


  • Line a 15×10″ baking sheet with tin foil and spray with non stick spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium, microwave safe bowl, combine peanut butter chips and half the can of sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir. If not completely smooth, microwave again for 15 seconds, and stir until smooth. Mixture will be thick like fudge.
  • Spread into prepared pan, using your hands to smooth it out if you have to (it’s not sticky, so it will spread easily!).
  • In another medium, microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and the rest of the sweetened condensed milk. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir. If not completely smooth, microwave again for 15 seconds, and stir until smooth. Mixture will be thick like fudge.
  • Spread on top of the peanut butter mixture carefully.
  • Let stand at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. Starting at the long side, roll up carefully and tightly, making sure to leave the foil behind. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours before slicing.
  • Store in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks.

    My aunt used to make a Christmas fudge just like this 40years ago. After she passed away, no one seemed to have the recipe. My mother said, all she knew was that she thought she used chocolate chips and pb chips. I am going to try this. Praying it’s what I’ve been searching for the last 20 years. Lol. Thank you.

  2. Jolynn says

    Thank you for the recipe. I have tried these twice and got different results because of the type of chocolate chips that I used. Peanut Butter were fine no matter the brand but, the chocolate definitely did NOT turn out when used Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Chips. Too greasy and soft.

    I also thought that it was a fail but, rolled the fudge, anyway. It cracked and broke and was so soft and mushy. I put the log in the fridge overnight and sliced then the next morning To my surprise, they turned out just fine.

    I choose to put the chocolate layer on the outside and score the edges with a fork after I sliced them so that they look like little slices of a tree trunk. The theme of the Baby’s shower is Woodland Creatires so I am planning to throw a few little animals around the fudge to help with the presentation. PERFECT! Thank you!

    My husband found this recipe and wanted me to try it. It is so easy. I messed up and didn’t wait the 15 to 20 min to roll it. I was working on it as I read and didn’t read that far down. It rolled but may be flat by the time 2 hrs are up. Taste great though. I do know that. Note to self. Read all before starting.

  4. Leigh says

    This was such a sticky mess. What did I do wrong? I had trouble getting it to flatten and it completely fell apart instantly when I tried to roll it. Any ideas?

  5. Courtney says

    I was so excited to try these and it was a hugeeeeee fail for me. The oeanut butter was not thick like the fudge at all but the chocolate was. So when I tried to roll it the peanut butter layer was too thin and just fell apart. Maybe too much condensed milk? I’m not sure what happened. I’ll give them one more try!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Hi Courtney! I’m sorry to hear that! The consistency should be exactly the same, since the ingredients in both are exactly the same, just with a different flavor chips. I would just make sure you use exactly half of the condensed milk with each.

  6. A says

    I was so excited to make these pinwheels! Then it was a complete Pinterest fail for me! πŸ™ I have no idea how you got these to work. They just wouldn’t roll for me they kept sliding lol. Maybe I should try them in the winter and not in the summer.

  7. Kelly says

    I feel the same way, the holidays are all about baking πŸ™‚ Love all the fun treats there are around this time of year – just like these pinwheels! They look incredible! Yay for only 3 ingredients too!

  8. Michelle | A Latte Food says

    That pretty much sums up my life. Every time I intend to do something healthy, somehow (I don’t know how), I end up with a batch of brownies, lol. Speaking of chocolate, this is brilliant! I can’t believe it’s 3-ingredients!

  9. Meghan | Fox and Briar says

    Yes, I am totally the same with the holiday baking bonanza. I just want to make cookies and more cookies. And these pinwheels, amazing! Chocolate and PB are my favorite thing EVAR (yeah, me and everyone else, right?). These are so pretty, and I love that they are so easy to make! Pinned!

  10. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! Many years ago I used to make pinwheel cookies that looked like these, but they were much more complicated – I love the simplicity of these! And you can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate! Thank you once again!

  11. Julie @ Julie's Eats & Treats says

    Mmmm yes. Christmas season all bets go out the window for any posts but TREATS! I was just looking at my posts for the rest of the month and there’s no “real food”. Guess I’ll fix that in January. I’m all about pinwheels and these look delicious!
