You can use either a 9″ x 9″ casserole pan or a 9″ x 9″ brownie pan. Once you have your pan, line it with waxed paper or parchment paper and leave an overhang to grab later. Then, melt your Wilton orange-colored chocolate in your microwave for about a minute to a minute-and-a-half depending on your microwave wattage.

Once melted, add in your cup of peanut butter and stir until the ingredients are fully blended and smooth. Pour your mixture into your pan and smooth it out as evenly as possible. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, or until the mixture is firm to the touch, while you work on the other half of the ingredients.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, mix your heavy cream and chocolate chips together until fully melted. Make sure to constantly stir this mixture while it’s heating up. Once your refrigerated mixture is firm, pour the heated cream and chocolate chips mixture over it in the pan. Chill in the fridge for a minimum of three hours, or overnight to be safe. Once chilled, pull the candy out and cut into small squares to enjoy.

After your candy is chilled, feel free to add extra special touches on top, such as sprinkles, candy corn, or anything else you think you’d enjoy. Now you’re ready to have a night of spooky good fun!
