How to Make 5-Ingredient Candy Corn Fudge in 15 Minutes
Halloween is a time of spook. Halloween is a time of costumes Halloween is a time of sweets. And one of our favorite candies to eat this time of year is candy corn. The only thing better than candy corn? Is other treats FLAVORED as candy corn.
That’s where candy corn fudge comes in. Fudge is already delicious, no matter what kind it is. From chocolate to vanilla, caramel to peanut butter, it’s a super versatile dessert that pleases just about any sweet tooth.
But trust us: You’ve never had fudge quite like candy corn fudge. The recipe comes from Princess Pinky Girl, and it’s pretty brilliant.
First of all, this candy corn fudge is quite aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It has an orange, yellow and white layer, just like its candy counterpart—and it tastes exactly like you think it would: It’s the flavor of candy corn and the texture of fudge—basically if candy corn and a piece of fudge were to have a baby.
It may look and sound complicated, but what’s truly amazing about this fudge is that it comes together in a cinch. It requires just five simple ingredients and tastes literally just 15 minutes to whip up.
All you need for this recipe are white chocolate chips, heavy whipping cream, vanilla extract, honey, and food coloring. You’ll make each layer the same, but mix them separately so that you can dye them the appropriate color. Once that’s done, you alternate between layering the fudge, chilling it, layering it, and chilling it.
It’s the perfect treat to whip up for Halloween. Enjoy the full recipe from Princess Pinky Girl below.
