Candy Corn Fudge, Trix and Treats

Happy Halloween boys and ghouls! Here's a fun recipe I found in my recipe box. It's a Halloween mystery of where it came from but it was pretty darn tasty!

For another fun dessert to serve on this spooky holiday, try some Trix and Treats. Begin to make Rice Crispy Treats (the recipe is on back of the cereal box) but replace 1 cup of Rice Crispies with 1 cup of Trix cereal and add 2 drops each of red and yellow food coloring (to get orange of course) to the melted marshmallow/butter mixture. This is the perfect day to play with your food, all in the spirit (or spirits) of good fun!

Candy Corn Fudge

1 (12-ounce) package vanilla or white chocolate chips, melted
2 (16-ounce) containers vanilla frosting
1 (10-ounce) package butterscotch flavored chips, melted
1/8 teaspoon or more yellow food coloring, divided use
1/8 teaspoon or more red food coloring
Candy corn

Line a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan with foil or wax paper, leaving a couple inches of overhang on each end; butter foil.

In a large bowl, combine melted vanilla chips and half the frosting; mix well. Spread 1/3 of mixture in prepared pan.

Melt butterscotch chips. Combine melted butterscotch chips and remaining frosting in another large bowl; mix well. Add enough yellow and red food coloring to turn mixture orange. Stir until well blended. Spread orange mixture over white layer in pan.
If remaining white mixture has hardened, heat in microwave until just melted and smooth, stirring occasionally. Add enough yellow food coloring to turn mixture yellow; stir until well blended. Spread over orange layer in pan. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.

Use foil/wax paper to lift fudge from pan. Turn white side up and carefully peel off foil. Cut into pieces. Press a candy corn into the center of each piece. Store in the refrigerator.
