Equipment

  • 9-inch square pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Wooden spoon
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Knife + cutting board

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid Mission Dried Figs , stems removed + finely diced
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup no-stir creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 12 ounces Guittard white Choc-au-Lait chips
  • Flaky sea salt , optional

Instructions

  • Line a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. Coat with cooking spray. Scatter half of the diced figs onto the parchment, evenly distributing them. Set the pan aside.
  • Place butter and sweetened condensed milk into a microwave-safe bowl.
  • In three bursts: microwave the mixture for 30 seconds, stirring afterwards for a total time of 1 minute 30 seconds. Microwaving in bursts and stirring helps ensure the right heat level. By the final stirring, the butter should be completely melted.
  • Stir in the peanut butter and fine sea salt until almost smooth. Microwave for 30 seconds more and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  • At this point, stir the chocolate chips into the bowl until smooth. It will begin to thicken and look glossy, taking on a consistency of taffy.
  • Pour the peanut butter fudge over the scattered figs, using an offset spatula to smooth out the top. Scatter on the remaining figs and flaky sea salt if using it.
  • Chill the pan in the refrigerator until set, about 2 hours. Slice and serve. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
