I think you will just LOVE the recipe I have to share with you today! TWIX Fudge Bites!! Doesn’t that sound delicious?? I love creating recipes with the different “bite” sized candies – like my Pretzel Snicker Bites using Snicker Bites of course. Also my Caramel Brownie Bites were yummy using the Mars Milky Way Bites and today I get to share my TWIX Fudge Bites using…. You guessed it! TWIX Bites! Have you tried them yet? They are so good!
With Father’s Day right around the corner (NEXT WEEK!!!) I wanted to make a recipe I knew my husband would love that the kids could give to him. He loves both TWIX and Fudge and so I thought making a combination of the two would be perfect!
Be sure to come back on Monday to see the cute Father’s Day printable I have to go along with the TWIX Fudge Bites!!
This fudge recipe is rather simple and comes together nicely – just be sure to follow the directions so you don’t end up with burnt fudge.
TWIX Fudge Bites
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 4 Cups Sugar
- 1 Large Can Evaporated Milk
- 2 or 3 packages of TWIX Bites (depends on how much you snack while you cook)
- 1 and 1/2 packages of Chocolate Chips (I use milk but just use your favorite)
- 1 large chocolate bar (again I use milk because it is my favorite)
- 1 Jar of Marshmellow Creme
Before you start cooking you want to get everything prepped and ready so your fudge does not burn. Like opening up all of the packages, etc. I start off by opening the marhmallow creme and setting aside. Then in a big bowl I put the chocolate chips, break the chocolate bar into pieces and add 1 of the packages of TWIX Bites
I then take half a package of some TWIX Bites and cut them in half and set these aside (not in the bowl with the other chocolate)
Next I prepare a 13×9 baking dish by lining it with tinfoil (makes it easier to pull the fudge out) and spraying that with some cooking spray. After that is done get a big sauce pan and put in your stick of butter, sugar and the entire can of evaporated milk.
Now everything is prepped and you can get started! Turn the heat on medium – I pretty much keep it here the entire time. Start mixing the three ingredients together and slowly they will all dislove into each other. Keep a slow stir while things get heating up.
The next steps I was not able to get pictures of because I was too busy stirring and getting everything just right. What you want to do is keep stirring and when the sugar mixture begins to boil start a timer for 6 and 1/2 minutes. Keep stirring for the entire time. If you stop stirring then it can easily burn.
Once the time is up remove the pan from the heat and immediatley and the marshmallow creme. TIP: Dip a spoon into the hot mixture and use that spoon to get the marshmallow cream out of the jar. The heat from the spoon helps get it out much quicker.
Begin stirring the marshmallw cream into the sauce while you stir in the bowl of TWIX Bites/Chocolate Chips/Chocolate Bar. Now keep stirring until everything is nicely incorporated. You should stir until there is no more white from the Marshmallow cream.
Pour into your 13×9 baking dish. Next I took my other bag of TWIX Bites and placed them on top of the fudge and gently pushed them in. Then I sprinkled the cut up Twix Bites over the top as well.
Now you need to let this cool. You can do it slowly on the counter, faster in the fridge or a lot faster in the freezer. TIP: If you cool it off super quick (like in the freezer) it can sometimes cause the chocolate to become a bit dull in color.
Once everything is cool it is easy to pull the fudge out of the pan – just pull it out by the tinfoil and then lay the tinfoil down for easy cutting.
Now you can cut up into bite sized pieces and enjoy!
For this batch I am placing the fudge in some cute mini loaf liners I found at walmart.
To keep the fudge fresh keep wrapped tightly with saran wrap. I make up different variations of this fudge at Christmas and keep it wrapped tightly and in the fridge. Then whenever we go to a party or want to bring a treat to a friend I cut up some of the fudge to take with us. Everyone always tells me how much they just love the fudge! I hope you enjoy it as well!!
