Wondering what to do with all that leftover candy?  My solution: make fudge.

The boys did quite well on Halloween. That was after our neighbor dropped by with what would be considered a pretty good haul for both of the boys because she was going to her friends house. Snickers, Milky Ways, Reese’s, you name it. All the good stuff.

I jokingly snatched the two bags and was like great, these are mine. Then, not so jokingly, made fudge with their candy while they were at school.

Good news – they loved it!

And seriously, how could you not? The peanut butter base to this fudge pairs perfectly with all kinds of candy. I used M&Ms, Peanut M&Ms, Snickers, Reese’s, and Milky Ways.

I made the second easiest kind of fudge (the first being sweetened condensed milk + chocolate chips).  I find the marshmallow creme version so much creamier and more candy shop fudge like. In fact, this batch of fudge just made it to number one on my list of favorite fudges.

You would think that this fudge would be overpoweringly sweet but somehow the peanut butter mellows it out quite a bit. Still, a small piece does quite a nice job of satisfying my sweet tooth.

  5. Can you tell me what brand of marshmallow creme you use? I have had recipes fail over and over and I think it’s Bc I’ve bought fluff when I should have bought creme and creme when I should have used fluff. Thanks! My neighbors will love this during the holidays.

  6. Nothing is better than adding PB cups and other deliciously addictive candy to even more deliciously addictive PB fudge! You have made me very happy this morning, Trish! And I’m sure your kids were so thrilled!

  12. I loved this Trish! Feeling like a kid right now. We’ll definitely make this fudge this weekend!

  13. This fudge is so pretty, Trish! I love the peanut butter and all the fun, colorful candies you used in here! Okay, that’s it, I’m totally raiding my son’s candy stash to make this. Pinning!

  14. I’m wondering if you prefer this fudge or the EASY Reese’s fudge?

  15. Your fudge looks perfect! Mine never comes out as pretty (tasty, but not attractive). I think I might attempt to make some in December and use green and red M&Ms like you said. Wonderful and festive idea!

  16. Thank you so much for all your lovely recipe… appreciated it so much…..

  17. Hi, do you have an alternative from using marshmallow creme? We don’t get it here in New Zealand :(
