Halloween Fudge is a double layer of chocolatey deliciousness with a bottom layer of chocolate topped with a layer of orange white chocolate and a cute little ghosty treat!
This post and recipe was created for HalloweenTreatsWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% my own.
I am a big fan of fudge, but I’m a little particular. Usually I go for the old-fashioned fudge, that takes quite a while to prepare, but is well worth the effort. This time around, though, due to living in an RV currently with limited space, and kitchenware, I decided to go a different route. And I will say that it turned out very well. The flavors are great, and I just love the little ghost candy on top. Don’t you??
The active time it took to make this was minimal, which is nice. It did have to be refrigerated a couple of hours to firm up before cutting, but the preparation time was only about 10 minutes, max. You know I’m always up for quick and easy! And delicious, can’t forget that little detail!
I was originally going to do straight chocolate and white chocolate flavors, but at the last minute decided to add just a hint of orange flavor to the top layer. Not overwhelming, but so delicious! Think of those chocolate oranges that are around at Christmas time. YUM.
How to make Halloween Fudge:
Full Printable Recipe Below!
1.) Line an 8×8 baking pan with foil (make sure there is some hanging over the sides for easy removal later) and set aside.
2.) In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 1 1/2 cups of the semi-sweet chocolate chips with 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk, stirring occasionally until melted and blended together. Spread melted chocolate mixture into pan and chill in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes while you make the orange layer.
3.) Wash and dry the saucepan (or you can use another one if you’d rather). Heat over medium-low heat, add the white baking chips and remaining condensed milk and stir until melted and completely smooth. Remove from the heat and add orange extract and food coloring. Stir to combine and even distribute the food color. Spread orange layer over chilled chocolate layer. 4.) Score the top for easy cutting later, and if using candies place one in the center of each scored square.
5.) Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until fudge is completely set (could take up to 4 hours).
6.) Using the overhanging foil edges, remove from the pan, place on a cutting board and cut where previously scored. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to two weeks. Fudge will freeze and thaw well.
Halloween Fudge is a perfect treat for kids and adults, alike!
