Easy Fudge Recipe

The main ingredient in this fudge is candy corn!The candy corn mixed with some peanut butter makes a butterfinger candy bar! If you don’t mind making this recipe with 5 ingredients, I like to melt some milk chocolate and drizzle it over the top of the fudge. No candy thermometer needed – just an easy fudge recipe!

This recipe is a viral TikTok recipe, the original Butterfinger Fudge with candy corn – and it’s so delicious.

Ingredients Needed

  • Candy Corn: Be sure to use fresh candy corn (from this year, not old stuff you find in your pantry).
  • Peanut Butter: Creamy peanut butter is definitely the way to go for this recipe.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: Turns it into fudge!
  • White Chocolate Chips: This is what helps the fudge solidify.

How to make Easy Butterfinger Fudge

  • Line a 9×9-inch pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Add Candy Corn and peanut butter to a saucepan and heat over low heat. Add sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate, stirring until smooth. This will take awhile!
  • Spread evenly in pan. Cool on counter about 15 minutes, then chill until hardened. Cut into squares.
  • If you want, you can dip the fudge in milk chocolate or drizzle chocolate over the top. Melt chocolate chips (I added a little vegetable oil to thin them) and dip the bottoms of the fudge squares in the chocolate. Set on a wax paper lined cookie sheet to harden.

Expert Tips

  • Candy corn takes a long time to melt down, which is why I recommend using a saucepan not the microwave. It works, just keep melting and stirring.
  • Make it melt faster: chop the candy corn carefully or use a food processor to chop it.
  • You can add chopped candy bars to this or dip the fudge in chocolate. I like it plain or drizzled with chocolate!

FAQs

Why didn’t my fudge set?

It could be a problem with the temperature. Make sure the milk gets hot enough!

How long does fudge last?

Fudge can last a couple weeks in the refrigerator, but can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months!

Easy Butterfingers made with candy corn, sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter!
Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Yield 36 pieces
Serving Size 1 serving

Ingredients
 

  • 3 cups Candy Corn
  • 1 cup (268g) peanut butter
  • 1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups (340g) white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (170g) milk chocolate chips , optional

Instructions

  • Line a pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. (I used an 8×8 pan. The fudge was very thick, so if I made it again, I’d use a 9×9 pan.)
  • Add Candy Corn and peanut butter to a medium saucepan and heat, over low heat, stirring every 30 seconds or so, for about 3 minutes. Add sweetened condensed milk, stir, and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds (you don’t want the milk to boil; a slight simmer is okay). Add white chocolate chips and stir until everything melts together. (It will seem like it’s never going to melt…but it will!)
  • Spread evenly in pan. Cool on counter about 15 minutes, then chill until hardened. Cut into squares.
  • If you want, you can dip the fudge in milk chocolate. Melt chocolate chips (I added a little vegetable oil to thin them) and dip the bottoms of the fudge squares in the chocolate. Set on a wax paper lined cookie sheet to harden.

Recipe Notes

  • This fudge is a little softer and chewier than traditional fudge. But it actually tastes like a Butterfinger!
  • To make melting easier, carefully chop the candy corn first, or use a food processor to chop it.

  1. Super yummy recipe but definitely takes a lot longer than 20 minutes if cooking as directed. The white chocolate takes quite a while to melt.

  2. Wow, this stuff is incredible. I used more milk chocolate and put a layer of milk chocolate on the top of it. I definitely recommend if you like Butterfingers.

    1. What’s a Brand of White Chocolate and Candy Corn that you recommend for your easier melt times? You previously mentioned other brands being harder to melt.

      1. For white chocolate, just don’t use generic. I recommend a name brand – and for both the chocolate and candy corn, use fresh (as in, not leftover for last year). It melts better!

  3. I made this for a cookie exchange and everyone loved it so every Christmas I make this for gifts and for the desert table. I dip the bottom of there fudge in chocolate and then lightly drizzle some chocolate on top; this makes it look & taste better.

  4. Great easy recipe. Yes it took a while to melt the candy corn, but it eventually melted with enough time and stirring! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used a larger dish because I wanted a not as thick fudge. But it still came out perfect. I took it to work and it was a hit with everyone! Will definitely make it again! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this and it was a hit with my family and my coworkers. The only problem I have with the recipe is that it didn’t take 20 mins to make at the temperature listed. Unless , the recipe is made on a gas stove. An electric stove is slow moving at that temperature.
