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.
How To Make Candy Corn Fudge
Okay, the bad news is that you do need a candy thermometer. But I promise that Candy Corn Fudge is really easy to make.
I started with my favorite granulated sugar by Dixie Crystals, butter, and sour cream. That mixture gets brought to a boil until it gets to 234F which is the soft ball stage of candy making. You want to make sure to remove it from the heat as soon as it hits it or it will start to turn into hard candy.
Once it hits soft ball stage, stir in chopped white chocolate and marshmallow cream. When the white chocolate and marshmallow cream is fully melted, stir in salted peanuts and mini candy corn. Work quickly because you don’t want the candy corn to start melting and leave orange and yellow streaks through your fudge.
The mixture gets poured into a pan lined with aluminum foil (so you can remove the entire thing before cutting) and then it just has to set up for at least 4 hours before you can slice and serve it.
How To Store Candy Corn Fudge
Homemade fudge will keep up to 2 weeks at room temperature (as long as it’s not too warm) in an airtight container. Fudge can stay good for up to a month if stored in the fridge.
Can You Freeze Candy Corn Fudge?
Yes! You can freeze candy corn fudge! Store it in an airtight, freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. Just thaw in the fridge overnight when ready to serve.

- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- ½ cup sour cream
- 12 ounces white chocolate roughly chopped
- 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow cream
- 1 cup mini candy corn
- 1 cup dry roasted salted peanuts, roughly chopped
1. Line a 9x9 inch pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Pour into the prepared pan and rotate pan so the fudge reaches the corners. Chill at least 4 hours before cutting into 36 pieces.
