Reese’s Pieces Fudge

By  | Last Updated:  

Here’s a new recipe (at least to me) that could be a great kids’ party food idea. With all of those orange and yellow candies, wouldn’t it look awesome on an autumn themed dessert table?

One of my earliest memories of eating candy involves chocolate fudge. My Mom used to make it as an occasional weekend treat. After mixing and heating the ingredients, she would drip a little into a cold cup of water to see if it had reached the just-right softball stage. After her inspection, I got to scoop it out with my fingertip, which I would promptly pop into my mouth, always hoping she would have to check it again right away. When Mom deemed it was ready, she would pour the dark chocolate ribbons in a heap on a well-buttered plate; the confection would miraculously flatten out into a smooth ocean of perfectly textured fudge. Oh, the anticipation!


Once, for some reason, the fudge didn’t harden as it should. It was like a very thick chocolate caramel. We each took a big spoonful of the chocolate goo and enjoyed it anyway. In fact, I realized I liked “eat-with-the-spoon fudge” best and often begged Mom to make it the wrong-right way after that. She often obliged. I have a nice Mom.


Raise your hand if you like fudge…I’m waving mine! Enjoy trying this one. You might keep a spoon nearby. You know. Just in case…
