I have 2 successes to share and both involve my favorite fall treat…Candy Corn!
First…I received this bag of candy corn from a cute little patient yesterday morning at 7:45am. She knows me well! I am pleased to say that I did eat a few candy corns (and shared some), but by Saturday afternoon, the majority of the bag is still here.
HUGE Success! There are candy corn people and there are not. I, as most of you know, am a Candy Corn girl! But in an attempt to stick with my Healthy Habits, I have only snacked on a few, saving the rest for a fun baking treat.
Number Two…Look what I found at Target today?!
They do exist! At first, it wasn’t looking good…
Can you believe how many new types of Oreos they make?
It wasn’t until I made my way up front to pay that I spotted the Candy Corn Oreos on the end cap by the register. Success!
I wasn’t able to get a picture of where I found them because a worker was arranging the display, but I picked up 3 boxes and took a picture in the parking lot. It took all of my will power not to dig right in, but I had a few stops to make before going home.
Once at home, I opened up the cookies immediately.
They are sweet and delicious! I don’t know if I’ve ever had a golden Oreo, but I think I could be in love. These cookies (slightly warm from the car) tasted wonderful!
Before I even found the Oreos, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them…Cake Batter Fudge!
I used the original Cake Batter Fudge recipe for inspiration adding in some chopped Oreos.
I sprinkled a few more cookies over the top of the fudge.
And then pressed in some candy corn pieces for decoration and flair.
Waiting while the fudge cooled was the hardest part. But, the BOY grilled us up some dinner, and I made a salad using my funky new bowl.
And we had some cool Wisco beers to sip on.
By the time the BOY and I ate dinner, cleaned everything up, and sat out back enjoying the gorgeous evening, the fudge was ready to be sliced. I was surprised that the cookies mixed into the batter so well, and I loved the light orange hue of the fudge…very festive!
The cookie crumble on the top is a must! I would consider this recipe success Number Three!
I can’t wait to figure out what to do with the other 2 boxes!
Candy Corn Oreo Cake Batter Fudge
Adapted from Cake Batter Fudge
2 cups white cake mix (yellow could work too)
2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1/4 cup milk
1 container of Candy Corn Oreos, crushed into big pieces
A few pieces of candy corn
Place cake mix and powdered sugar in a large bowl and combine. Pour in the milk, top with stick of butter, and microwave for 2 and a half minutes. Immediately begin mixing everything together – the butter may not be fully melted but will as you continue mixing. Stir in the majority of the cookie pieces, then pour fudge into a greased 8×8 cake pan covered with foil. Sprinkle remaining cookies and candy corn over the top, pressing everything in with the back of a spatula. Chill for at least 2 hours before cutting. Store in the refrigerator.
Do you like Candy Corn? Have you tried the Candy Corn Oreos yet?
What recipe would you make with them?
One other fudge recipe worth sharing is this Peppermint Oreo Fudge.
Without the Peppermint, I bet it would be perfect with these Oreos.
