Loaded Chocolate Bar Fudge

  AHHH.  I’m finally able to get on the computer after this weekend.  It was a good weekend spent with friends for me, and I hope it was extra fun for those that participated in Halloween!  If you still have some chocolate candy lying around, you can totally use it in this fudge.

  These came out way better than I thought they would.  I know, you’re probably thinking how could something with Snickers, Twix, AND MilkyWay come out horrible.  I just thought it was going to be an ooey-gooey mess, but thankfully, it wasn’t!  It came out awesome.  And it tastes aaaa-mazing.  It’s also super easy, just throw the ingredients in a pot till melted, stir in the candy, pour into a square pan to firm up, then cut.  It’s that simple!

  Gosh, on top of all the things I love about this fudge, I really, really like the crunch when you bite into a piece.  It’s either a peanut from the Snickers, the cookie part of the Twix, or both.  I feel like those two candy bars go together like two peas in a pod!

  You’ll actually be seeing a couple more recipes with chocolate bars involved from me this week.  I have a lot left over from buying all the stuff on sale yesterday…. I mean, I’m sure my brothers would love to eat it all in one day, but I wouldn’t want to waste it that way(haha), so I’m going to put it to better use and bake something with them.  So be on the look-out!

Ingredients
  1. 1 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
  2. 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  3. 6 ounces bitter-sweet chocolate
  4. 2 tablespoons butter
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/2 cup Snickers bar, chopped into small cubes or can use the bags of bite-sized ones
  8. 1/2 cup MilkyWay bar, chopped into small cubes
  9. 1/2 cup Twix bar, chopped into small cubes
Instructions
  1. Chop the Snickers, MilkyWay, and Twix bars into 1/2 inch cubes, place in a bowl and set aside. Chop the semi-sweet and bittersweet chocolate, set aside.
  2. Fill a pot with about 1 1/2 inches of water and place a heat-proof bowl that's large enough to sit on the top of the pot(make sure the bowl does not touch the water), bring water to a simmer and place the 2TBS of butter, salt, chopped bittersweet chocolate, and semi-sweet chocolate in the bowl over the pot. Stir till all ingredients are melted and runs smooth. Turn off heat.
  3. In another sauce pan, heat the condensed milk and vanilla till warm to touch, add the melted chocolate mixture and chopped candy bar pieces and stir till fully combined.
  4. Pour fudge into a 9x7/8x8 pan lined with tin foil(for an easy removal, cut it where the foil overlaps on all sides), and evenly spread around. Sprinkle with extra candy pieces or salt(optional). Let rest in the pan for 2-3 hours until firm or in the fridge till firm to touch.
  5. When the fudge is firm enough to cut, remove from pan by lifting the foil out. Place fudge on a hard, flat surface, and cut into 1 1/2 inch squares. If you placed the fudge in the fridge to harden, take it out of the pan and let it come to room temperature before cutting.
Notes
  1. Instead of buying wrapped bars for this recipe and chopping them up, you can buy the bite-sized candy pieces that are unwrapped and already the perfect size, just measure and pour them in!

    Any idea how many candy bars make a 1/2 cup? ‘Cause I’m going to eat the leftovers …

      For the MilkyWay and Twix I bought a big bag of the fun sized ones and chopped as many up as needed and for the Snickers, I bought a six pack and used 3 or 4 of the bars if I remember correctly. There was quite a lot left over after doing that!

    Also, what’s the difference between semi-sweet chocolate and dark semi-sweet chocolate – is there a brand you recommend?

      I’m really glad you brought that up cause I just now noticed that I made a mistake there(don’t know how I missed that), ha! There should be bittersweet chocolate with the semi-sweet(I fixed it). But to answer your question, there isn’t a difference as semi-sweet chocolate is dark chocolate, just with more sugar than bittersweet. As for brands, I like to use Ghirardelli.
