Ok, first of all, I know I’m 2 days late in announcing, but the winner of my Celebrating Autumn giveaway is:

The Brown Family!

I’m always late in announcing these winners – I really will be on top of things one of these days!  But it works perfectly into this post – because I promised Candy Corn Fudge!

This will actually be the first post of 2 today.  I made 2 different kinds of fudge, but well – I just made the second kind yesterday and I don’t have pictures yet.  So it will be up this afternoon.

While I am usually a cookbook/magazine/blog kind of cook, lately I have really been inspired by different things I’ve seen around for sale.  Which sends me on the search for a recipe, and then for some experimentation.  I saw some candy corn fudge for sale, and while it was more like the fudge I will show you this afternoon, I got thinking that it would be fun to do a vanilla fudge and color it like candy corn.

I thought this was so fun, and would be perfect for a holiday party.  It’s quite sweet, so a little really goes a long way.  And my layers aren’t very even, but I think it’s because I only made half the recipe, so my pan was too big and it was harder to control the layers.

My biggest hint for this recipe is to make sure you have everything ready to go.  Especially once you start coloring the layers – because the fudge will start to set up pretty quickly and you need to get all the layers down before it sets up.  But it is so easy to make – no candy thermometer needed – and it probably takes less than 15 minutes to throw together.


GIVEAWAY!!

In my Celebrate Autumn giveaway, I promised a half a pound of Candy Corn Fudge.  Well, since I love giveaways, I’m going to do another giveaway!  This one is just for 1/2 pound of fudge (1/4 pound of each kind), and all you have to do to enter is be a Facebook fan!  If you are already a fan, you are already entered.  You don’t even have to leave a comment if you don’t want to.  (Although I always love comments!)  And if you aren’t a fan, head on over and Like my page.  It’s that easy!  Sorry to any of you that aren’t on Facebook – but there will be another giveaway next week that you can all take part in.  This giveaway will close next Wednesday, October 20 at 11:59pm MST, and the winner will be announced on Thursday (or a day or 2 later – you know that’s how it usually goes with me!!) Giveaway closed!

    My candy corn fudge is currently cooling…. and even though I haven't tasted the final product yet, I know, from the MANY finger licks of the white chocolate marshmallow butter mixture that now fill my stomach, that these are wonderfully cream and sweet. Thanks for the great recipe! Yours look absolutely beautiful… I'll be writing about these for National Candy Corn day! :)
