Halloween Fudge

I may or may not have a little obsession with Monster Cookies this week. How can you not love the flavors packed into one treat? And today’s fudge is no exception.

Chocolate, oats, raisins, M&M’S Peanut Butter all packed into this crazy fun fudge recipe!

Let’s talk about this fudge quick. It’s made using my favorite no thermometer needed vanilla bean fudge base.

Just more proof that knowing how to make vanilla fudge will get you far in life.

I added a bunch of my favorite Monster Cookie ingredients including peanut butter M&Ms and raisins. Some multi colored sprinkles and googly eyes turned the tasty treat into a silly, spooky Halloween fudge.

As for those additions, this recipe can be made any time of year by mixing up how you decorate the fudge!

Ingredient Notes

Here’s what I added to my vanilla fudge to turn it into cute Monster Cookie Fudge!

  • Chocolate Chips – Semi-sweet regular sized morsels or mini morsels will work.
  • M&Ms – Peanut butter M&Ms are my favorite. You can use regular M&Ms too, add about 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the fudge to give it a PB kick!
  • Raisins – Substitute craisins if you prefer or leave them out if you’re not a raisin fan.
  • Oats – For that crunchy “monster cookie” element! Be sure to use quick cooking oats.
  • Sprinkles and candy eyes – Change up the sprinkles and decorations to suit the occasion. Red and green sprinkles turn this into a Christmas fudge. Or use some heart shaped sprinkles for Valentine’s Day. It’s all in what you make of it.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1. Make the vanilla fudge

Add marshmallow cream, white chocolate chips, and oats to a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cream, butter and salt. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring frequently for four minutes. Pour this mixture over the ingredients in the mixing bowl.

STEP 2. Add mix-ins

Beat the fudge mixture for about one minute until everything is melted and smooth. Fold in your raisins, M&Ms, oats and chocolate chips.

STEP 3. Decorate

Pour the fudge into a prepared pan lined with parchment paper. Decorate the top of the fudge immediately with sprinkles and candy eyeballs!

STEP 4. Chill

Let the fudge set up in the fridge for about 4 hours. Cut into squares and serve!

Tips and Tricks

  • Store fudge in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can freeze the fudge too but the sprinkles may bleed color when the fudge thaws.
  • If using google eyes, you can pair them together or space them out to make this into adorable “cyclops” fudge!
  • Try arranging sprinkles to make the shape of a mouth and nose to complete your monster faces.

Recipe FAQs

Can I omit the raisins in monster cookie dough (fudge)?

If you can’t stand the idea of raisins in your fudge, go ahead and leave them out. I love the contrasting texture and flavor!

Can I use different candies in place of the M&Ms?

Absolutely. Reese’s pieces would be a great and nutty substitute for the peanut butter M&Ms.

Do you need to keep the fudge in the refrigerator?

I like to keep it in the fridge but it will also hold up fine at room temperature once set, unless your house runs warm!

Comments & Reviews

  1. This post is very confusing. You start out talking about vanilla beans and have a link to your vanilla bean fudge saying that you use this as your base for the monster fudge. Then under ingredients/directions you have a different fudge recipe (without the vanilla beans). Hopefully I didn’t just waste a whole bunch of ingredients and time.

    1. I use my vanilla bean fudge as a starting block, correct. But to make it “monster cookie” I changed some of the ingredients. The recipe in the recipe card is what you should print and use.

  2. Absolutely love this recipe! Incredibly delicious but more importantly, my kids were fighting over who got to help me make it…LOL

  3. I just love peanut butter M&M’s…a little too much!  And of course googly eyes this time of year is just a must!!!  

  4. This is seriously the cutest fudge – ever. And who knew fudge could be cute? Love this recipe, Aimee and that knife! 

  5. You make THE best fudge! And monster fudge?! How fun and festive. AND your name is on a knife!!! That is so cool!

  6. This is just about the cutest halloween treat I’ve ever seen! I can just imagine how excited kids would be to see this at a party!

  7. Awesome fudge, awesome knife, Aimee. Love that logo on the blade. Love the googly eyes on the fudge. Too funny. My little guys will get a kick out of this. With the raisins and oatmeal, I would definitely dub this a “healthier” fudge!

  8. Oh, the PB M & Ms. My absolute fave. In fudge, even better! I love how you can throw candy eyes on everything this time of year and make it spooky! 🙂
    A good knife is totally life-changing. Makes edges so nice and smooth!
