Got a chocolate craving that needs satisfying? This Twix Fudge is an easy treat to make for when that sweet tooth starts calling out. Creamy chocolate fudge on top of a sweet, crumbly crust and lots of chopped up Twix candy bars...yes, please.
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!
