Brown Sugar and Pineapple Roasted Acorn Squash with Spiced Brown Butter.
Happy Friday before Halloween!!
I just had to add that, because sadly we will not be chatting tomorrow on Halloween. BUT, how fun is it that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year??? No work, no school, no having to get up early the next morning – just a good time to be had by all.
SOOO. Tell me, what are your plans for this Halloween? Any parties tonight or tomorrow? Is anyone making this cake, this cheeseboard, these graveyard cakes, or maybe these healthy caramel apples? Oh, or maybe these homemade Tim Tams? Anyone, anyone??
If you are, please send me pictures! Tag me on Instagram, Tweet me, Facebook me, email me, or even send a photo through snapchat. I REALLY want to see what you guys are making.
Clearly I need to live vicariously through you guys cause my social life is pretty LAME.
Well actually, I am venturing out of my little box that is my kitchen and office and out into the real world. I know, I know, it’s about flippin time, right? I’m headed down to the Boulder area today for a little time at the pumpkin patch and then off to a Halloween party, with like people other than my brothers.
Shocker, right?! But I swear, I do actually know people other than my family. Promise, I am not a total hermit. 🙂
To be fully honest, the number one reason I am going anywhere is to get myself to that pumpkin patch. It has some photos calling me, and I NEED to get them before it’s too late. I could not think of a better day than the day before Halloween. Should be pretty festive!
And OK, I am kind of pumped for this Halloween party too. I am in charge of dessert. Are you wondering what I’m bringing…can you guess? It’s chocolate ALL OVER.
I mean, obviously.
It’s loaded with peanut butter.
And it’s kind of boozy, cause we are all adults, and it’s Halloween, and bourbon is good with chocolate and peanut butter.
And yeah, if you did not already get it by now, I am totally talking about this fudge!!
How perfect is it?
It’s so super simple. Full of the best flavor combo EVER, chocolate + peanut butter, and has bourbon sugar sprinkled on top. I mean. The excitement on my end is pretty much through the roof.
I love simple recipes like this that are just so good!
The idea behind this dessert was that we could all use up all those leftover peanut butter cups from Halloween to make it. Thinking about it now though, peanut butter cups are probably the first Halloween candy to be devoured. SOO, maybe stock up and save a couple handfuls for this fudge because you guys just have to make it.
Not to mention, it’s the perfect holiday gift for Thanksgiving and or Christmas. Just thinkin a little ahead for ya! 🙂
Like I said, this fudge is really easy. Just some chocolate, peanut butter cups, a little vanilla and a little bourbon. It’s probably one of the easiest desserts to make. BUT, this fudge gets a super fun and exciting final detail.
Salted bourbon sugar!!
Yes, this fudge has perfection sprinkled on top! And well, it’s kind of pretty too (shh…it also reminds me of Christmas the way it sparkles!).
And with that, I think I am done.
Oh wait, can I just add that this fudge can be made in no time, because it can. I’m thinking that you should probably just skip waiting for the leftover Halloween candy and make this Easy Peanut Butter Cup Fudge tonight. Cause Friday NEEDS chocolate…and a little bourbon never hurt either.

DO IT. <–
This came out really great! I chopped up 1 cup of the peanut cups and left 1/2 cup whole like the pictures. Took me two tries to get the bourbon sugar right because I stupidly stirred the first batch together which dissolved the sugar too much. Also vanilla beans are expensive, I just used 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with the sugar/bourbon and it worked great.
The fudge melts quicker in the hands than normal store bought fudge. I have a feeling this has to do with cooking temperature. Tastes great.
This fudge is beyond gorgeous! I love that bourbon sugar, so pretty!
