Candy Bar Fudge

I found this dish over at Alli N Son and was fascinated immediately.

Don’t let the name of this dish scare you away:  it’s completely wonderful any time of year.  Better yet, it’s made with candy bars, and so you can change the flavor and texture of this dish merely by adding a different type of candy.

The pros of this recipe don’t stop there.  It’s super simple to make – which makes this candy-challenged girl very happy – and it’s kid friendly.  My two had a fantastic time chopping up the candy.

Finally, the taste:  this fudge is rich, smooth, and creamy.  A little bit goes a long way, but unlike most fudges, I wasn’t done for the year – only for the day.  This sweet will keep you coming back for more.

We shared a few pieces with My Big Helper’s teachers, and that night we were surprised to get a phone call from one.  She wanted to personally thank us for the fudge and to ask us for the recipe!

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Line an 8X8 or 9X9″ pan with parchment paper, leaving extra on two sides for handles.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 3 c. of semi-sweet chocolate chips, 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk, 2 c. mini marshmallows, a pinch of sea salt, and 1 1/2 t. vanilla until smooth.  Since my microwave was still out of commission, I did this on the stovetop with low heat and lots of stirring.
  3. Stir in 1 1/2 c. chopped candy bars. We used peanut butter cups.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan, smoothing out.  Chill for two hours.
  5. Cut into small pieces and store in the fridge.  
The finished product?
 

 Yum!  Thanks, Alli!
