Halloween Fudge - perfect for a class treat! | crazyforcrust.com | #halloween

Halloween has been woefully neglected so far this year. I know, I know. It’s only October 9. But, really, that’s like December in blog months. I’m very behind!

My house isn’t decorated. My Halloween decorations are still tucked firmly in the closet.

Jordan has a Halloween costume…by chance. Remember that cheer/dance uniform I got her (the one that spawned this post)? She’s going as a HS dancer for Halloween. Provided she doesn’t change her mind, that’s done at least.

I haven’t made cutesy treats. I haven’t even come up with any cutesy treats! Unless you think orange and black fudge is pretty cute?

I do, so we’re calling it. I made a Halloween treat!

This fudge is super easy to make. You’d think it wouldn’t be (I thought it wouldn’t be) but it is! Thanks to my friend Jocelyn, who makes the best layered fudge (check out her Neapolitan), it really is totally doable!

Yes you have to get two pans dirty. But it’s worth it!

This fudge starts with one key ingredient:

Halloween Fudge Process (1 of 2)

These Halloween moresels from Nestle! You can find them at Walmart and Target. At Walmart I found them with the baking items, at Target I found them in the Halloween section.

It takes a few minutes, but you separate the colors into two piles: orange and “black” (semi-sweet). Then you make two batches of fudge, one orange and one black!

Orange and Black fudge, perfect for Halloweeen! crazyforcrust.com

For the “black” or semi-sweet layer, you add enough additional semi-sweet chocolate chips to make a total of 1 and a 1/2 cups. The Nestle bag has about 1 cup of semi-sweet, so you only need to supplement about a 1/2 cup.

The orange was just shy of 1 cup. I supplemented with white chocolate chips, enough to make 1 and a 1/2 cups.

The fudge is made the “easy” way, with sweetened condensed milk. Do the fudge you want on the bottom layer first. You don’t have to put black on the bottom, do what you prefer!

Once the bottom layer is chilled for about 10 minutes, you make the top layer and smooth it on gently. Then I topped mine with candy corn, to make it even cuter.

Note: if you can’t find the Nestle chips, you can use Wilton candy melts in orange. You can find those at the craft store (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.) If you can’t find those, you can use vanilla almond bark or Candiquik (in the baking aisle at places like Walmart) and color it with candy color (NOT food coloring). I think they have candy color at Walmart, but they for sure have it at craft stores.

This fudge will be perfect for your Halloween parties. Class parties too – Jordan loved it!

And, er, if you’re from San Francisco…this is perfect for baseball. Or anyplace where the Football team is orange and black!

 

Halloween Fudge

Halloween Fudge

Ingredients

  • 1 bag Nestle Toll House Halloween Morsels
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or a little more)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or a little more)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, divded
  • 24 pieces candy corn (or more if you want smaller fudge pieces)

Instructions

  1. Line an 8” square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Open the bag of Nestle Toll House Halloween Morsels and separate the orange pieces from the semi-sweet ones.
  3. Starting with the semi-sweet morsels from the Halloween mix, measure how many were in the separated pile and add enough semi-sweet chocolate chips to make 1 and 1/2 cups total. (You will get about 1 cup from the Nestle package, and will need to add about 1/2 cup extra chocolate chips.)
  4. Add the semi-sweet chips to a pan with 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Spread in prepared pan using an offset spatula (or, if you’re careful, spray your hands with cooking spray and press to fit - be careful the mixture is hot!)
  5. Place in the refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes before starting the second batch.
  6. Measure how many orange chips were in the separated pile and add enough white chocolate chips to make 1 and 1/2 cups total. (You will get about 1 cup from the Nestle package, and will need to add about 1/2 cup extra white chocolate chips.)
  7. Add the white chips to a pan with the remaining 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Spread carefully over semi-sweet layer with an offset spatula. Immediately press candy corn in the top. I did 4 rows of 6. Use more or less depending on the size of your fudge.
  8. Chill to harden, slice, and serve at room temperature.

Notes

For a Christmas treat, use the Nestle Christmas colored morsels!

Note: if you can't find the Nestle chips, you can use Wilton candy melts in orange. You can find those at the craft store (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.) If you can't find those, you can use vanilla almond bark or Candiquik (in the baking aisle at places like Walmart) and color it with candy color (NOT food coloring). I think they have candy color at Walmart, but they for sure have it at craft stores.

  11. Your layers are so PERFECT! Whenever I make things like this, inevitably one is thicker than the other or they run/bleed and I have ‘hills and valleys’ when I stack them up. Super noticeable on camera. Yours are …perfect. And I bet the taste is amazing.

  12. Let’s not forget to make PINK fudge for B.C.A. month? Please?!

  13. Love Halloween Treats! This is a really fun way to use those chocolate chips :)

  18. What an adorable Halloween treat! I had no idea that Nestle made such cute morsels for Halloween. I’ll definitely have to see if I can fine those! And I’m so glad to have read the tip on making layered fudge. I’ll probably be making a layered fudge this weekend, so this post will definitely come in handy : )

  20. The fact that you have Halloween decorations, even if they’re not out yet, puts you far above me. Dudette has a bunch of skeletons that she decorates her room with, but that’s about it. Oh….I do have a Halloween mat that I put outside. Does that count? :) I love the fudge though. I’ll be preparing a treat for Dudette’s class soon and I may just make this fudge. It’s adorable.

  28. I love fudge and this one seems perfect! I can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing.

  29. Dorothy, this definitely qualifies as a “cutesy” Halloween treat! I had no idea you could use sweetened condensed milk for fudge. I’ve only done the more traditional route, although I did use marshmallow fluff one time and it turned out fabulous! And the candy corn on top is the perfect touch. Love it!
