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!

I love you and this fudge! Why have I never thought of eating fudge and cookies together? You’ve opened up a whole new world to me! I’m sitting here thinking of all the different flavor combinations…I see a lot of fudge in my future, yes I love you (of course in a friend, non-stalking kinda way!)


Terri Colgrove September 21, 2012 at 10:47 pm

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


Aimee September 21, 2012 at 11:53 pm

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

Thanks ! Perfect for a tea luncheon I am planning ! So pretty and tasty !


Jpenneylv October 24, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Did you use white chocolate chips or what kind of white chocolate? Could I use chocolate chips??


aimee October 25, 2012 at 6:37 am

I used white chocolate chips. I wouldn’t recommend chocolate as it would really alter the taste of the fudge!


Donna Casey November 15, 2012 at 9:42 pm

You have such unique fudge recipes! Made this one tonight for our Thanksgiving get-together at work tomorrow. LOVE it! Not saying this might be addictive or anything, but I did lick the beater…and a little of the bowl…but that’s normal, right?! :) Can’t wait to feel like a rock star when everyone at work tries this tomorrow. Thank you SO much for sharing!


Donna Casey November 16, 2012 at 5:28 pm

The fudge was a HUUUUUGE hit today at our work party! Thank you, thank you! I think for our Christmas get together, I’ll try one of your other fudge recipes. You rock! :)


Heather November 17, 2012 at 11:05 am

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.


Pryntyl December 8, 2012 at 5:53 am

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.


Nila December 10, 2012 at 6:57 pm

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


aimee @ shugarysweets December 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!

Heather December 24, 2012 at 11:53 pm

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.


Heather December 24, 2012 at 11:55 pm

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


Charlotte March 13, 2013 at 11:40 am

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?


Charlotte March 13, 2013 at 11:45 am

I thought I read all the comments, but it seems I missed some. Ok, it looks like I may not have cooked the sugar long enough…I will try it again another time.


Rosie @ Blueberry Kitchen March 13, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Ooh, I love this idea – your fudge looks so good! Fudge with white chocolate and apple pie filling sounds too delicious!

Susi July 15, 2013 at 7:34 pm

white chocolate…….you mean chocolate wafers? or white bark? And 3 cups doesn’t say a lot…….1 bag of wafers? or 1 pkg of bark? I want to try recipe but am confused on how & what kind of “white chocolate”. Help please!


Susi July 15, 2013 at 7:36 pm

never mind……..but thanx anyway……found my answer.


aimee @ shugarysweets July 15, 2013 at 9:46 pm

Glad you found your answer! Enjoy the fudge!!


Jen July 21, 2013 at 6:09 pm

I made this, followed the directions exactly, and it won’t set up. Any sugguestions?


aimee @ shugarysweets July 21, 2013 at 6:34 pm

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!!

Jen July 22, 2013 at 10:42 am

I will say that baking is not my strongest skill. I’m a fantastic cook and cook several times a day. I would like to get better at baking and making desserts, so I’ll give this another shot! Thank you!! :)


George fudge lover October 4, 2013 at 10:54 pm

Jen I cook mine at 236 degrees on my candy thermometer for 8 mins once it starts boiling…….hope this helps…
Mine sets beautifully every time


Dawn September 13, 2013 at 2:13 pm

Do you melt the white chocolate first?


aimee @ shugarysweets September 16, 2013 at 9:22 am

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


George fudge lover October 4, 2013 at 10:52 pm

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!!!
Thank you for this amazing apple pie fudge recipe!!!!!!!


Julia November 1, 2013 at 3:53 pm

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!


Sherri Lancashire September 9, 2014 at 11:53 am

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!!


aimee @ shugarysweets September 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).
