Apple Pie Fudge

Apple Pie Fudge: delicious soft fudge with apple pie filling inside. Topped with a gingersnap "crust"
Hi, my name is Aimee, and I’m addicted to fudge.
See those bits of apple in there? Yep, apple. As in apple pie filling. 
I couldn’t do apple week without making fudge. I mean, you all expected this, right?
Apple Pie Fudge: delicious soft fudge with apple pie filling inside. Topped with a gingersnap "crust"

These were actually the first apple desserts I made for #appliciousweek!!

The creamy fudge with chunks of apple pie alone are amazing. But then I topped each one with a piece of a gingersnap (quite possibly one of my favorite cookies…)

If you wait a few hours after putting those cookie bits on, they soften like a pie crust. OMG. LOVED this fudge!

    do you melt the chocolate first or just have it in little pieces?

      No need to melt it. You pour the hot mixture over it and blend until chocolate turns smooth!

    I was wondering about baking the gingersnap into the bottom of the pan and pouring the fudge over top of it? How soft did the cookie stuck into the fudge become? Maybe I will turn the pan once hardened so the cookie would be on top or crumble the cookie into the pan and then pour fudge. Ill let you know how it turns out.

    Hello! I’ writing from Italy! sometimes I do not understand some ingredients, becose they are typical Americans and ready-to-use sold in USA supermarkets. Can I ask politely what you mean by apple pie filling? a puree of cooked appleslides?

    Thank you

      Apple Pie filling comes in can, and it is an alternative to making your own filling. It is not pureed though. Bake apple slices or apple chunks with a bit of flour, sugar and cinnamon, etc. just like you would an apple pie but without the crust. Cool and use in recipe.

    You have 3 cups of white chocolate. Is that chips or bark? And melted right? Can you further explain the step please?

    • posted Dec 10, 2012 at 7:31 pm

      I use white chocolate chips, but regular white chocolate bars would work too. And not melted. Just put it in a bowl and set aside. Then, when you pour the hot melted sugar mixture over it, you whisk it until smooth! Hope this helps!!! ENJOY!

    I made these with a gingersnap “crust”. I used a 11.5″x8.5″ pan (quarter sheet steamtable pan. I used Martha Stewart gingersnap recipe with 1.5tsp ground ginger, and put a thin later and baked 25min, to ensure crispness.3 cups of white chocolate is 18oz.It’s a little sweet for me personally, but with the gingersnap crust it really gives it a nice flavor, and it has gotten better after sitting a few days .
    To the person who said it didn’t set, you have to cook it longer to set the sugar.all in all, I would make it again. I included it in my holiday tins and everyone liked it.

    PS, I would also make in a regular brownie pan next time so it’s not so thick.

    After being in the fridge all night, it’s still a bit soft…too soft, I think. I was trying to cut it with a clean, dry knife and it was smushing. :( The only thing I can think of that I did different is chopping up the apple pie filling. Or maybe I didn’t cook the sugar mix long enough? Any ideas?

      Hi Jen,
      The only thing I can think of is the sugar didn’t boil long enough. You need to boil for a complete 4 minutes (a good rolling boil, stirring constantly). Other than that, without being there, I’m not sure what to tell you!!

    Do you melt the white chocolate first?

      Nope. Once you pour the hot mixture over it will melt while you beat it with an electric mixer until smooth. ENJOY.

    I’ve made this fudge many times and it’s always everyone’s favorite…
    I make a graham cracker crust for the bottom and it really works well…
    1/2 stick butter 1 cup crushed graham crackers and 1/2 cup sugar…melt butter and mix thoroughly and line bottom of 8×8 pan and press it down til firm and bake at 350 for 7 mins….let cool then pour apple pie fudge on top and once cool, enjoy!!!

    Hi! This sounds really good! I have a few questions though… for 3 cups white chocolate chips, do you know about how many 12oz bags I would need to buy to get 3 cups? Also for the apple pie filling, doesn’t that have large apple slices in it? Did you just leave the large pieces in the fudge or did you cut it up? Thanks!

    Hi and thanks for this recipe! It’s very unusual and I can’t wait to “test drive” it…I posted it on my Pintrest page and I noticed that it was listed as a vegetarian food…I was wondering how that could be as there’s dairy products in the ingredients. Thanks for all your lovely posts on your seasonal treats!!

    • posted Sep 10, 2014 at 4:20 pm

      I haven’t labeled this as vegetarian. However, some vegetarians do eat dairy (it’s vegans who do not).
