Candy Corn Fudge
You’re either a candy corn fan, or you’re not. And, I’d say if you’re not a fan you may even be a hater. That’s all right. Candy corn is a special Halloween treat and I realize not everyone likes it. We love candy corn in our house and I have a ceramic pumpkin canister that I keep filled with candy corn September – November. I’m a popular mom in the fall 🙂
When I was a kid there was really just the traditional candy corn – the orange, yellow, and white triangles. Today you get all the other shapes and colors, but for this recipe I’m staying traditional and going with the good ol’ fashioned candy corns.
We’ve added an option, though, to make the fudge over the top — throw on some peanut butter candies. You know, the ones that ET likes! They are the perfect color combination for this candy corn fudge recipe.
Candy Corn Fudge Ingredients
Only a few – five – ingredients are needed for this simple candy corn recipe. The last ingredient, the peanut butter candies are optional. You could also add M&Ms if you want a chocolate flavor.
- white chocolate chips
- sweetened condensed milk
- candy corn
- peanut butter candies (optional)
How to Make Candy Corn Fudge
I love fudge recipes because they really are super easy to make. No baking required, just a few minutes on the stovetop.
Start by getting your 9×9 pan ready. I like 9×9 because it creates the perfect height for the fudge and also it’s perfectly square so it makes cutting into smaller squares easy. Line your pan with parchment paper and then spray the parchment with cooking spray. This will save you a lot of headaches when you try to get the fudge out of the pan.
Get a saucepan and put in the white chocolate chips, butter, and sweetened condensed milk. Melt the chocolate chip mixture over low to medium heat until the mixture is smooth. Don’t leave the stove unattended at this stage. You want to gently stir the mixture to help the chocolate chips melt.
Once it’s all smooth, remove from heat and add the vanilla. Don’t add the vanilla while it’s cooking because the heat will evaporate the vanilla.
Add some candy corns (and the peanut butter pieces) into the mixture. Here’s where you start to have options. If you want a smoother piece of fudge, add just the candy corns, or none at all. You can always just decorate the top with the candy corn and peanut butter candies. This is where you can make decisions!
Pour the fudge into the prepared pan. Add the remaining candy corn and other candies to the top of the fudge and gently press in.
Let fudge sit until hard, or if you’re in a hurry like I usually am, put it in the refrigerator.
Once it’s hard, remove from the pan by pulling the parchment paper up. Cut into 1×1 squares with a sharp kitchen knife. We love this easy fudge recipe.
How To Store Candy Corn Fudge
Storing fudge is easy. You can chose to put it in the refrigerator (my Florida friends might opt for this) or you can keep it in an air-tight container on the counter for several days. Keep in mind, this fudge won’t last long so you don’t really need to worry about storing it too long!
