Candy Corn Fudge

Candy Corn 2

When I think of fudge, I think of Christmas.  Then Pinterest changed my mind.  I typed in “candy corn” and up came images of candy corn fudge.

Who would have thunk? Not me.

That’s because I don’t think far enough outside of the box.  I peek outside every now and then, but thinking totally outside is way out of my comfort zone.  Thankfully there are others who are totally comfortable out of the cardboard.

I love an easy recipe and this is one of them but it does take a little extra time to make because you need to let the layers cool before adding the next one.

Candy Corn Sliced

This is the perfect sized recipe for gift giving so keep it in the back of your mind for the upcoming holiday season.  I’m thinking red and green or blue and white fudge would be fun to give and yummy to receive.

Go ahead and “Pin” it now to your holiday bulletin board and then in 2 months wonder why you have candy corn pinned to “holiday”.  Just sayin’ that’s what I would be doing.  Good thing they have a place to add a description or comment to remind yourself of why you have it there.

Go ahead, make it now, get the kinks worked out so when you go to make your holiday fudge, it’ll be perfecto!

Saw this recipe first at Something Swanky.

Candy Corn Fudge

I saw this recipe first at Something Swanky. I only made half of this recipe and it was plenty to feed at least 2 dozen people. I used a loaf pan and put my wax paper into half of the pan so the layers would be more distinct.
Can’t wait to try this at Christmas with red and green!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

6 cups white chocolate chips
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
Food coloring: yellow, orange (I like gel)

Directions:

1. Line a 9×9 baking dish with wax paper.
2. In a large saucepan, combine white chips and sweetened condensed milk over medium-low heat. Stir until completely melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
3. Pour 1/3 of the mixture into prepared baking dish and chill for 15 minutes. (Keep remaining fudge in saucepan, heat off).
4. Stir fudge over low heat until melted and smooth again (should only take a minute or two).
5. Pour 1/3 of mixture into a medium mixing bowl and stir in orange food coloring (or 2 yellow + 1 red). Pour over the white layer in baking dish. Let chill for 15 minutes.
6. Again, reheat the remaining 1/3 of fudge over low heat until melted and smooth. Stir in yellow food coloring and pour over orange layer in baking dish.
7. Let chill for 3-4 hours or overnight (best results).

8. Cut diagonally into small serving sizes.

    Does this actually taste like candy corn? I’ve been looking so hard for a candy corn recipe that /actually/ tastes like candy corn!! To me, it’s not candy corn fudge if it doesn’t taste like candy corn.. lol

      This tastes like white chocolate fudge. If you could ever find candy corn flavoring you could easily add it to the recipe. I called it candy corn fudge because of the look not necessarily the taste. :) Thanks for stopping by!
