Simple and yummy chocolate fudge with plenty of Snickers and Zero Bar bits. Easy to prepare and fun to serve any night of the week!
So…today we’re talking fudge.
I have never really been a huge fan of fudge, neither is my husband. Until recently, I thought no one here really cared one way or another about fudge.
But, very recently when I was at the mall, the boys were with me of course, and we had a very interesting conversation as we walked through a store known for their fudge.
the boys: can we please try the fudge? (this store will give you a free sample IF you ask)
me: the fudge, why?
the boys: we love fudge!
me: what? since when??
the boys: we love fudge!
me: WHAT? you guys have asked for fudge, oh NEVER, you have never said you liked fudge, and have never even talk about fudge. you like fudge?
the boys: doesn’t everyone like fudge?…we love fudge!
Right then and there I knew I had to start experimenting with fudge.
So, I decided to start with a very, very simple version and go from there. I adapted a simple version that I think I must seen a million times on the internet.
This version is really quite good. The boys loved it, and my husband liked it too.
Hmm, fudge, who would’ve thought?
If you’re wondering why I made it in a foil pan, it’s because I thought it would be going to work with my husband to share with his co-workers.
I was quite certain we would all have a piece, and be done. It doesn’t look like that will be happening now.
This fudge is definitely something you could share with your co-workers, or any other group of people. FYI – I used Snickers and Zero Bars cut up into pieces, any good candy would be great!
Easy Chocolate Fudge with Candy Bar Pieces
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 can (16 ounces) chocolate fudge frosting, I used Pillsbury, any brand will do
2 Zero Bars (1.85 ounces each), cut into 1/4-inch chunks, divided
1 Snicker’s Bar (2.05 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch chunks, divided
1. Line a 9-in. square pan with and grease the foil with butter, or spray generously with cooking spray; set aside.
2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips; stir until smooth. Do this in intervals, so you don’t seize the chocolate (make it hard). When chips are completely melted stir until smooth. Stir in frosting and half of the candy bar pieces. Spread into prepared pan. Sprinkle with remaining candy bar pieces. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.
3. Cut fudge into small pieces with a knife or a cookie cutter. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
*Servings vary depending on how, and with what the fudge is cut.
