I love making things with candy corn, but the taste of candy corn doesn’t tempt me that much. One or two bites and I’ve had enough.

I know a lot of people aren’t crazy about the taste of candy corn. This fudge actually only has candy corn on top and it is easy to take them off if you don’t like them. Then you’re left with a creamy white chocolate-pretzel fudge . Sweet and Salty. Just the way I like things.

This is a super easy fudge to make but it’s a little different than most fudge recipes. (Besides the fact that it has candy corn in it.) It also has cream cheese in it and everything is mixed together using a mixer.

The key to having success with cream cheese is to let it come completely to room temperature. If you get impatient, you risk it not mixing in well with the other ingredients and you want your fudge to be silky smooth.

And if you don’t like candy corn, just think of it as a garnish. 🙂

Ingredients

Instructions

  3. In a double-boiler or a pan with a very thick bottom, melt the white chocolate. Keep the heat low and stir frequently so the chocolate does not burn.

  1. This is such a fun and festive fudge, Christin 🙂 The candy corn topping looks perfect for Halloween! I love the pretzels in the fudge too – sweet and salty treats are the best!:)

  2. Love the sweet and salty and rich flavors of your fudge and even delicious cream cheese. I am with you on the candy corn but you know what since you can’t find them anywhere in Hong Kong. I am craving them… LOL
