Springtime Jelly Bean Fudge

My friends and I had chocolate covered jelly beans for the first time recently and we really loved them. To keep the fun alive, I made this jelly bean studded fudge out of white chocolate, then decorated the top with flowers made of more jelly beans. It's truly a jelly bean lover's delight, and perfect for the springtime.

Jelly Belly sells huge bags of their irregular jelly beans for half price. I actually found a big bag for 99 cents at the dollar store! For this recipe, it doesn't matter what the beans inside the fudge look like, so this ended up being a super cheap batch of fudge with at least 50 servings.

Total Time: 1 hour plus 4 hours to set

Yield: 50 pieces of fudge

  10. Beat this mixture with an electric mixer for about a minute until everything is blended and smooth.
  11. Sort through your jelly beans to find colours for your flower decorations for the top of the fudge. You'll need about 1/2 cup.

  19. Gently twist the can and it will pop out. Release the latch on the springform pan and remove the fudge. The foil will easily peel off.
