There was a big storm yesterday, and hardly anyone came trick-or-treating at our house. Sad, but what might be even sadder is the amount of leftover candy we have! We’re packing up most of it to give away to needy children, but keeping some to make some Halloween leftover candy treats- and for decorating our gingerbread house next month.
Of course, I’m here to share what might possibly be my favorite leftover Halloween candy recipe: Candy Corn Fudge! It’s so good that even if you don’t have leftover candy corn, you might want to go out and buy a bag just for this.
Leftover Candy Corn Fudge
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
20 oz. candy corn (about 2 and a half cups)
2 cups roasted peanuts or pecan pieces
Prepare a brownie pan by rubbing some butter all over it. Set aside.
In a skillet over very low heat, melt together the butter and marshmallows, stirring constantly so the bottom doesn’t burn. You want to melt the marshmallows. Add peanut butter, and mix until combined well. Add powdered sugar, stir ’til smooth. Add candy corn and nuts (peanuts or pecans- or both!), stirring until nicely combined.
Transfer to your buttered pan, evening it out with a rubber spatula. Allow to cool. If it’s hot where you are, refrigerate until firm.
Cut into small (these are sugary little suckers!) squares, and enjoy.
