What is Candy Bar Fudge?

It has the exact same delicious, fudgy Snickers bar flavor. Delicious, fudgy chocolate makes up the top and bottom layers, while an addictive nougat layer made of a caramel and peanut mixture sits in the center. The layers shouldn’t scare you, though; this dish is really easy to make. Trying not to eat all the caramels before you start is the hardest part.

Can Candy Bar Fudge be made ahead?

Yes, making Candy Bar Fudge in advance is quite simple. When ready to slice and serve, finish the preparation and store it in the fridge for a day or two. It will have the same fresh flavor and appearance as the day it was prepared. Additionally, it will help you save a little time when serving it for the holiday, gathering, or supper.

Candy Bar Fudge Ingredients

  • Fudge Layer: Melted together, ½ cup butter, ⅓ cup baking cocoa, ¼ cup brown sugar, and ¼ cup whole milk make up the chocolate fudge layer. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 3 ½ cups of powdered sugar to give it flavor and sweetness, as well as a thicker consistency.
  • Thirty caramels: These are the traditional caramel candy squares from the supermarket or confectionery stores, each individually wrapped. For the second layer of fudge, you will unwrap them and melt them with one tablespoon of water and two cups of peanuts.
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips and ½ cup milk chocolate chips: The top layer of Candy Bar Fudge is made of a firmer chocolate coating made from melted chocolate chips.

Kitchen Tools & Equipment

  • Baking Dish: To layer the fudge, use an 8-inch square baking dish. To make sure it comes out smoothly, grease it with butter.
  • 3 Bowls Safe for the Microwave: This fudge consists of three layers, which are heated in the microwave and combined in separate bowls. Choose medium-sized dishes that can accommodate your ingredients and be stirred, without being too huge to fit in the microwave.
  • Rubber Spatula: To mix ingredients, scrape down the interior of each bowl, and equally distribute layers, use a rubber spatula.
