Recipe by Sue Lau
Please read reviews. This recipe worked for me but perhaps differences in types of peanut butter or what is in the candy make a difference. I think if the mix isn't stirring smooth enough, add extra butter before you mix in the sugar. Or perhaps add the sugar a little at a time? Otherwise I don't know what to tell you. --Sue

these turned out great for me - exactly what i was expecting! there is no chocolate in them so calling them "fudge" may be misleading and cause some people to be disappointed. they still taste sweet and are a nice twist to traditional halloween desserts. i used a gas stove which probably works best as you are better able to regulate the melting process (((if they turn out crumbling it is because you did not have the heat turned high enough))) i also cut the amount of peanuts in half and used only 2 cups of the candy corn and that adjustment seemed to be fine in terms of taste.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- 20 ounces candy corn (about 2 1/2 cups)
- 2 cups roasted peanuts
- halloween candy sprinkles (optional) or extra candy corn (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Butter a 9x9 brownie pan (I use a silicone pan but still butter it) and set it aside.
- In a deep skillet over low heat, melt butter and marshmallows, stirring constantly, until marshmallows melt.
- Add peanut butter and stir until mixed in and melted. Then add powdered sugar, stirring until smooth. Don't add candy and nuts until these are mixed and smooth.
- Fold in candy corn and peanuts, stirring until nicely mixed. Some of the candy may start to melt, and that's fine. The candy corn really don't need to melt so don't worry about that.
- Pour mixture into the buttered brownie pan, and using a buttered pancake turner, flatten mixture completely.
- If you like, sprinkle with extra candy corn or Halloween "cupcake sprinkles", pressing them down with a sheet of waxed paper to keep your hands clean. Be careful not to burn yourself!
- Allow mixture to cool, then cut into small squares (you can put them into small cupcake papers and keep them in a cookie tin if you want.
