While browsing for recipes online today I came across these two great fudge recipes and guess what?!?! You make them using CANDY :) Not to mention they look super easy to make!

Tootsie Roll Fudge Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 cups Tootsie Roll Midgees

  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • Line a 9-in. square pan with foil. Grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, melt the Tootsie Rolls, peanut butter and remaining butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla (mixture will be very thick). Fold in pecans.
  • Spread into prepared pan. Using a sharp knife, score the surface into 1-in. squares. Press a M&M's candy into the center of each square. Cool. Using foil, remove fudge from pan; cut into squares. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2 pounds.
