Twix Fudge - easy chocolate fudge full of Twix candy bars

My house is an absolute disaster right now.  No, not because I have given up completely on cleaning…although that has crossed my mind a time or two before.

We decided to paint our kid’s bedrooms.  It was really supposed to be one room that quickly spiraled out of control into all 3 bedrooms.  You know how it goes if you have more than one child.  I mean how could we even possibly think about only doing one.   Children tend to warp your brain with their logic.  Of course painting is fairly easy, so they won us over to their dark way of thinking.  It has been over 4 years since we painted those rooms.   Time for a refresh and a redo.

So all three rooms have been completely stripped down to make painting easier.  That means piles of “stuff” is all over our dining room, and the entire basement looks like we are moving or destroying something.  Take your pick!

Can I admit that I don’t even like to paint?  Oh, not because it is hard or anything.  I am just terrible at it.  Drips and drops and paint splatters…and that’s just on me :-)  The walls end up looking streaky and splotchy.  Hey, I may get an F for painting but at least I get an A+ for being in there helping, right?

I would definitely pick being in the kitchen making a mess over painting any day.  Even if it is just making something simple like this Twix Fudge.

Have you noticed yet that I am quite smitten with adding a crust to my fudge?  It all started with this Mocha Mallow Fudge, and I haven’t stopped.     Strawberry Shortcake Fudge, Coconut Oreo Fudge, Banana Cream Fudge, and this prize winning Neapolitan Fudge.  Ok, I’ll say it.  I am addicted to making fudge with crust.

This chocolate fudge is seriously so easy.  No boiling, no thermometers, and no fail…sounds easy enough right?

Start by prepping your candy bars.  Take all wrappers off, chop up the bars, and smack all the children who try to reach in and steal chunks of caramel candy bar goodness.  Go ahead and smack yourself because you will want to steal chunks too!  Set the candy bars aside.  I do recommend setting them aside where you can’t see them.  Out of sight, out of mind!

Now crush your cookies and mix with some butter and press it into a pan.  If you want to leave the crust like this, just pop it into the refrigerator to set the butter.  The crust will be crumbly and fall apart as you eat the fudge…not a bad thing at all, but I just want to warn you.  If you have some time, throw the pan in the oven for about 7 minutes and then let it cool.  The crust will be harden up and stay together better this way.

And no, do not literally throw the pan in the oven.  My kids are always correcting me on these phases.  I say I’m running to the store all the time…and every. single. time. they ask me why I don’t want to drive there.

Melt the chocolate chips with the butter in a small saucepan over low heat.  (You can also melt them in the microwave for a minute.)  Give it a stir until it is creamy.  Then take the lid off the can of frosting and heat that in the microwave for one minute.  It will melt down, and you can pour the entire can over the melted chocolate chips.  It will become an ooey gooey pan of goodness.  Work quickly to spread it over the crust.  Then take those hidden candy bars and sprinkle them all over the top.  Make sure to press them into the fudge slightly.

Give it some time to set up and then cut into small squares.  I suggest finding someone to share with.  This Twix Fudge is so good.  You will find yourself walking through the kitchen multiple times a day just so you can grab another square.  True story!

Hi, my name is Jocelyn, and I am a hoarder of baking supplies.

At any given time I could make at least 10 different desserts using the baking supplies that are in my cupboards.  Actually 10 might be kind of low…but I don’t think I really want to count what is in those cupboards and get an accurate number.

Just like a moth is drawn to a light or flame, I can’t resist the urge to walk down the baking and candy aisle every single time I go to the store.  It doesn’t matter that I just bought 5 bags of candy the last time, another one or two will still make it into the cart along with some cookies, cake mixes, pudding, and sprinkles.

My husband tells me I have a problem.  Yeah…he is probably right.  But I’m ok with that, and I think you guys are ok with my “problem” too.  I mean look at this fudge staring back at you.

Sprinkles and Oreos are a wonderful thing to hoard in your cupboards until inspiration hits.  You should try it some time.  The fudge and the hoarding that is.  Although I suggest finding hiding spots that your kids do not know about.  My kids have found out where I hide the baking Oreos.  My oldest is crazy about Oreos, so he gets into the baking stash all the time.  I think it is time for a new hiding spot.   [Read more...]

Oreo Coconut Cream Truffles - these homemade coconut cream truffles are seriously amazing!!

Right now I cannot get enough coconut.   I am normally obsessed with coconut any time of year, but the past few weeks I have gone completely bonkers for the stuff.

Good for me…not so good for my family.  You see, I am really the only one that loves the white stuff.  My hubby likes it too, but he likes the fresh stuff from the actual coconut.  I go for the already shredded stuff in a bag from the store.  Yes, I’m the lazy one in the family.  Or the smartest…because I get to eat coconut faster than he does.  I can be munching on the sweet stuff, and he is still outside with a hammer trying to get through the shell.    [Read more...]

 Why is it that the entire world seems to slow down when you are falling through the air?  And let’s clarify that I don’t mean the love kind of falling…

I only wonder that because yesterday was that day for me.   Let’s just say that pink converse shoes with no tread are not a good idea on ice and snow, no matter how cute you think you look in them.   Just words of wisdom from my bruised self to you.  Take it or leave it, but seriously don’t wear them.     Thank goodness for yummy strawberry fudge waiting at home for me to soothe my bruised body and ego with.

 Where has this month gone?

Is anyone else in shock that Christmas is exactly one week away?  I still have presents to buy, cookies to bake, cards to make, and of course I want to enjoy every crazy minute of the holidays.  You would think that since I bake so many things all the time, that I would be ready with trays of treats.  Not the case!  You see peppermint treats started being made here in my house in October.  Yes, I know that’s when everyone else started baking pumpkin.  But the life of a food blogger is much like a magazine.  You see they start prepping those magazines in July, just so they are ready for December.   [Read more...]

Reindeer Snack Cakes

These Reindeer Snack Cakes are an easy and fun treat for any and all holiday parties.

Reindeer Snack Cakes | Inside BruCrew Life

I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a fun holiday treat this year.

Reindeer inspired treats have been following me everywhere I go…on pinterest, magazines, and TV.  I took it as a sign that I needed to jump on board and create my own fun version.    Now really there isn’t anything different about mine than anything I have seen.  Googly eyes…check.  Red nose…check.  Pretzel antlers…check.  Yup, it’s kind of the same thing everywhere you look.

My little twist was to use prepackaged snack cakes for the head.  I wanted something that was already dipped in chocolate, so I didn’t have to.  This is an easy treat people.  So easy the kids could probably do it with their eyes closed.  Only I don’t recommend that if they are anything like my boys.  They were using the toothpicks as weapons instead of dipping.  They also were giving the reindeer a lot more eyes than two.  Boys!!!

 I am so sorry to do this to you again.  No, I’m really not that sorry.

Are you guys completely tired of my peppermint obsession yet?  Honest, I have tried jumping off this peppermint train that I am riding.  I did share gingerbread, eggnog, and peanut butter last week…but, I just keep coming up with more fun and exciting recipes that use peppermint.  I kind of get a one track mind when I get obsessed on something.  Just ask my hubby about the scrapbook phase, the card making phase, and the current food prop phase.  He will just roll his eyes and tell you that I am a crazy lady.  It’s a good thing he loves me.  He puts up with me and my “hobbies” that change all the time.

How about I promise that I won’t take up your feed again with peppermint…at least this week.  I can’t make any promises for next week :-)   [Read more...]

I know that with every sweet I postI share, I tell you it is my new favorite.  And it’s the honest truth.  At the moment that particular thing becomes my all time favorite sweet, until I make something else that tops it.

Right now these Caramel Pretzel Cookie Dough Bites are my absolute favorite cookie dough treat that I have made yet.  And there have been quite a few that I have loved.    I think it is the combination of sweet & salty and smooth & crunchy that does it for me with these bites.  My husband really liked them too…and he is really not a big sweets eater.  Any time I find a treat that he approves of, it goes to the top of the must bake list.  (I did dip some of his in just all chocolate and topped them with sea salt…I think that’s why he liked them so much)   [Read more...]

I have jumped back on the fudge making train.  For a little while I was trying to make a new flavor every month, but I slacked off through the summer.  But recently I got the fudge urge again, and now I can’t stop thinking of fun flavors to make.

I think fudge all year round sounds so much better than fudge at the holidays.  Every single time we visit any fairs or markets, I have to check out the fudge booths.  You never know what fun flavors you might find.     [Read more...]
