Butterfinger Fudge

by aimee @ shugarysweets on September 27, 2011

It’s been awhile since I experimented with Fudge. I really wanted to try a pumpkin fudge, but our Kroger has been sold out for weeks! No worries though, my withdrawal from pumpkin will soon be over, I found some pumpkin yesterday!

In the meantime, enjoy this Butterfinger fudge. On one of our vacations this summer, I tried Butterfinger fudge for the first time. Since then, I have seen it at several more fudge shops. Who knew this was such a hot flavor!

Save those leftover Halloween candy bars that your kids won’t eat, and make this fudge. You’ll be glad you did too! If you don’t have any Butterfingers, you could always go for the extra step and make your own candy bars using this recipe! Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 3 cup sugar

Allow fudge to set in refrigerator, covered, for about 2 hours. Cut into bite size pieces and enjoy cold!

Sounds like heaven! I have some butterfingers leftover from making butterfinger blondies and I just might have to use them for this!

I’ve been collecting fudge recipes like a crazy person lately. I’m making goodies for my husband’s unit in waves as each flight comes home and fudge is one of those things that keeps well so I can make it in advance!

Stopping by from Tempt My Tummy Tues :)

Just made it and I must have done something wrong because it did not pour easily from the mixing bowl (I had to use a wooden spoon to get it out), it didn’t spread in the pan and it doesn’t look anything like the picture. We’ll see in 2 hours how it tastes, but it doesn’t look good. Bummer as I was excited to use up my leftover Butterfinger Bars.

Oh no Cyndi! Did you use a candy thermometer? Was it working properly? I’ve used this basic white fudge recipe numerous times, I’m not sure what could have gone wrong!!

I did use the candy thermometer (although it is old). They taste fine, just don’t look pretty. My husband ate them though.

This is what happened to me, I think I may have beaten it too long. I dont have a mixer. So I did it a little longer and it started to set in the bowl, so it looks a little crumbly but is delish none the less :) I will definitely try this one again
