So, the holidays are coming, but first…we must get past Halloween. Now, I am a fan of all things Christmas, but because I have two candy loving boys, Halloween is an event that I just cannot pass by. Though, I will admit, I try my best to take the-easy-way-out of most anything Halloween. There are some amazing Halloween party recipes out there that you can make. Easy ones that you can send into classroom parties and social events. Some you can even spook your own kids with at the dinner table. But the recipe I’m going to share with you is going to come in handy AFTER HALLOWEEN.
So, as I mentioned… I like to take the easy way out. My boys costumes are store bought, and, though I will paint their faces…I will not aim for perfection. Quite honestly, I let them do most of their own make up. I will take them door to door, and to every costume party they’re invited too. Am I taking-one-for-the-team. Yeah, probably. But as mom, I do a lot of that anyway.
What I don’t mind about Halloween… leftover candy.
Because In less than 10 minutes, with only a few simple ingredients, I can turn this Hootin’ Halloween Fudge into Christmas delights! Or Halloween delights. Or anytime I feel like a fudge between now and the holidays delights. There really is no true reason to save them. Just eat them. You’ll love it.
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/4 cup Bakers semi sweet chocolate – broken into chunks
- course salt
- leftover Halloween candy – chopped up into little pieces.
Line a 8X8 square pan with parchment or tin foil. Sprinkle the bottom of the pan with the left over pieces of Halloween candy. Lightly sprinkle with salt. Set aside. Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add the bakers chocolate, and mix until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the candy in the square pan. Refrigerate overnight.
Remove the fudge from the pan and cut into small pieces.
Eat it right away, or freeze it for holiday gift giving!
