Easy to Make Harvest Fudge
Fall is such a fun time for everything pumpkin, cinnamon, and apple! I have been having fun making all sorts of yummy treats. I usually stock up on Harvest Mix, and Candy Corns because they make for such fun festive toppings, treats, and decorative items. One day I was in the mood for some easy fudge so I thought it would be a great idea to make some, and top it with Harvest Mix.
I gathered my high end chocolate morsels, my sweetened condensed milk, and my candy. I also got out my 9 x 9 glass Pyrex Dish, and some waxed paper so that it would make for an easy cleanup. The recipe I was following called for simple ingredients, and and even simpler stove top method; or so I thought.
Since I am all about learning experiences, I have to say–ALWAYS follow directions, and stay focused while cooking, or baking. When I was making my Harvest Mix Fudge I was distracted by my son (who decided to dump dog food everywhere) and I left the fudge on a higher heat than it called for. My fudge seized, and began to scorch, BUT I saved it in the knick of time.
Sure, my fudge WAS NOT as smooth as it was suppose to be, but the flavor of the chocolate was not damaged in the slightest. It sure the heck could have been, so thankfully I reduced the heat right when I did. This fudge is suppose to be more smoother in appearance so again, go slow, and take your time!
Ingredients for Harvest Mix Fudge:
- 1 Bag of Harvest mix ( pumpkins, candy corns)
- 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 3 cups of premium chocolate morsels. I used Ghiradelhi
In a sauce pan over low heat, add your milk, and chocolate chips. Stir frequently, BUT please keep the heat to low!! Once your chocolate is melted, pour it into a 9 x 9 pan lined with waxed paper. Top with your Harvest Mix candy; refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Even though I almost messed up my entire Harvest Mix Fudge recipe, it still turned out good, and my kids LOVED it..don’t make that same mistake..take your time, and enjoy!
