I have to admit that I don’t follow football much, but last year when my nephew was a senior on the high school football team, I found myself jumping up and down screaming at the top of my lungs when he tackled the star quarterback in the last few minutes of a big game. I don’t consider myself a big sports fan, but I was all in that night.Over the years here at Hungry Happenings I’ve shared dozens of fun food ideas for football season. As the years have gone by I have found that it’s become increasingly difficult to come up with unique new ideas to share with you. There is just so much on-line these days. But, I think I rose to the challenge and created something I’ve never seen before.
When I first saw Wilton’s collection of Game On tailgating party treats I was really blown away by the creativity. Of course, I am always in awe of the recipes made by the talented designers at Wilton. I loved each and every one of their football party food ideas, but I have to say the Football Candy Melts Fudge is my favorite.
Their homemade candy football fields are made with one layer of white fudge and one layer of green fudge. Each little fudge square is then decorated to look like a football field. The idea is so simple, yet so genius. When I saw this fun candy idea I was inspired to use fudge to make my football jersey treats.
Wilton’s fudge recipe uses Candy Melts along with butter, cream, sugar, corn syrup and marshmallow fluff. It tastes amazing, but it requires standing over a hot stove stirring the boiling sugar mixture for quite a while. I’d rather spend more time decorating my fudge than stirring it, so I chose to use a my go-to, super simple, 2-ingredient fudge recipe using Wilton Candy Melts and sweetened condensed milk. It’s so easy to make and there is minimal stirring required.
