Candy Corn Fudge – white chocolate fudge with mini candy corn and salted peanuts. The perfect sweet and salty treat for Halloween!
You guys, it’s #HalloweenTreatsWeek!
The lovely and incredibly talented Angie of Big Bear’s Wife organizes #HalloweenTreatsWeek every year and I am so excited to be participating. There are 40+ bloggers sharing delicious and fun Halloween treats this week and I’ve got the full list of everyone’s first recipe down below.
My first post for the week is Candy Corn Fudge and I’ve been dying to share it for weeks now.
Y’all know I love all things sweet and salty so I mixed candy corn with salted peanuts and put in in a white chocolate fudge. I love everything about it. The saltiness of the peanuts keep it from being too rich and sweet and I just love when you slice into it and can see a full piece of candy corn. It’s just so pretty.
If you love candy corn but want something besides fudge, I have Caramel Corn Treats that are also a great sweet and salty treat.
- Unsalted butter
- Granulated sugar
- Sour cream
- White chocolate
- marshmallow cream
- Mini candy corn
- Dry roasted salted peanuts
- Line a 9×9 inch pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray.
- In a large pot, heat butter, sugar, and sour cream over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring frequently, until a candy thermometer reads 234F (soft ball stage), about 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Stir in chopped white chocolate and marshmallow cream. Stir until everything is melted and combined. It will be thick and take awhile. Fold in candy corn and chopped peanuts.
- Pour into the prepared pan and rotate pan so the fudge reaches the corners. Chill at least 4 hours before cutting into 36 pieces.
How To Store Candy Corn Fudge
Homemade fudge will keep up to 2 weeks at room temperature in an airtight container. These glass airtight containers are my absolute favorite for anything.
Fudge can stay good for up to a month if stored in the fridge, also in an airtight container.
Can You Freeze Fudge?
You can freeze candy corn fudge for up to 3 months. Once cooled and sliced, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then transfer to a freezer ziploc bag.
When you are ready to serve it, let it sit at room temperature overnight.
