Delicious Halloween Fudge

This fudge recipe does require two pans or bowls for melting, but trust me, it is for the best! With this fudge having a layer of brown and a layer of orange–the spooky halloween vibes are shining through with this recipe. This fudge is great on its own, but I also love to press a piece of candy corn or some sprinkles into the top to give it the best look. 

On face value, fudge seems like it would be hard to make. That can be true sometimes, but this recipe is EASY fudge made with sweetened condensed milk. This one factor makes the fudge have an enjoyable baking and eating experience. Get into the Halloween spirit with Halloween Fudge!

Ingredients Needed

  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: This is for the bottom layer
  • White Chocolate Chips: Can be easily dyed for the top layer
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: You’ll need a 14 ounce can
  • Orange Gel Food Coloring: I definitely recommend Gel Food Coloring because it will work better with this fudge. Regular food coloring has water in it and can break your chocolate.

How to make Halloween Fudge

  • Line an 8” square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Divide the sweetened condensed milk in half – I used a scale for this. A 14-ounce can is actually about 10 ounces by liquid measure (or 360g by weight). You’ll want to divide the milk in half exactly so the fudge will set.
  • Melt the chocolate layer first with half the sweetened condensed milk.
  • Place the layer in the prepared pan.
  • Melt the white chocolate then dye it orange and carefully spread it on top the chocolate layer.
  • Immediately press the top with even rows of candy corn (or other sprinkles).
  • Let sit until room temperature then chill to harden.

Recipe Notes

  • Sweetened condensed milk (in the US) comes in 14 ounce/360g cans (this is a weight measurement, not liquid). It’s approximately 10 ounces liquid measurement. To split it in half you’ll measure 5 ounces into a liquid measuring cup OR weigh out 180g.
  • Gel food coloring is best because it’s not water-based, and it will not break your chocolate. It’s also brighter and more rich in color than grocery store food coloring.

Expert Tips

  • A kitchen scale makes it much easier to equally divide the sweetened condensed milk, but if you don’t have one use 5 ounces for each type of chocolate.
  • I made my fudge with brown on the bottom and orange on the top, but you can switch them if you want. Simply just switch which color you make first. 
  • You can dye the white chocolate layer whatever colors you’d like, just try and find gel food coloring as opposed to regular food coloring. 

FAQs

How long does fudge last? 

It can last a few weeks in an airtight container! If you want to freeze it you can for up to three months!

What do I do if my fudge won’t set?

Most of the time this issue is caused by temperature. Therefore when you are baking make sure you follow the heat directions closely.

  1. 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.

  2. 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 : )

  3. I have got to buy those chips … have looked at them and resisted… why??? Love the layers and candy corn … of course!

  4. I’m being totally lazy about Halloween too – so busy with baby preparations! This fudge looks super yummy 🙂
