1. COMBINE the peanut butter and butter in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium until melted; stir in the confectioners’ sugar and salt until combined.
2. POUR into an 8-inch square pan lined with parchment. Stir together the jam and melted chocolate, place dollops atop the fudge and use a knife to swirl the mixtures until marbled. If you’re not certain how to make a swirl, here’s a video of the recipe.
3. REFRIGERATE until chilled and firm, about 4 hours. Cut into pieces. You can store fudge in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
