How To Turn Nut & Fudge Treats Into Drool-Worthy Desserts

Our Treats are Perfect For Your Next Baking Project!

At Bruce County Nut & Fudge, we design our treats so they’re perfect for any occasion: pleasing a crowd, enjoying dessert for two, or simply snacking when you feel like it. 

While our caramel apples, premium glazed nuts, and mouthwatering fudge are all great on their own, they can also be used in a number of creative desserts and dishes.  

We love to see our customers get creative with our treats. That’s why we’ve shared our top tips for incorporating Nut & Fudge products into other desserts below.

Pecan Pie 

A southern classic, this treat is perfect for Thanksgiving, picnics, county fairs, or any family celebration. Homemade pie crust and a dash of maple syrup can help this sweet, rich pie thrive.

Use Bruce County Nut & Fudge’s Caramel Glazed Pecans in your pie. They can be added as a topping, a rim around the perimeter, or even baked into your pie. These nuts are made with a concoction of caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and cocoa – our mouth is watering just from thinking about it.

Peanut Brittle 

This snack is perfect for sharing, as you can easily snap off a piece of this yummy, rich candy-like treat. Most peanut brittle recipes call for corn syrup, baking soda, and peanuts, but adding extra flavours can bring your brittle to life.

Use Bruce County Nut & Fudge’s Sea Salt & Honey Peanuts or Beer Nuts in your brittle. These nuts pack a powerful sweet-and-salty flavour that will instantly add pizazz to every piece of brittle you snap off. 

Cheesecake with Crushed Nuts

Cheesecake is the most heavenly dessert around. From its soft, fluffy body to its crisp graham-cracker base, cheesecake is satisfying from the first bite to the last.

For bakers, the great thing about cheesecake is that there are so many creative flavours and toppings to experiment with! Here are a few suggestions that will electrify your tastebuds:

  • Maple and walnut

  • Caramel and peanut

  • Vanilla and walnut

  • Coconut and cashew

Dessert Pizza 

Ever heard of a ‘dessert pizza?’ It’s all the rage in the world of desserts – essentially, it’s a giant flat, round cookie covered in your favourite dessert toppings. Chocolate, candy, nuts, fruit – you name it. Like a pizza, it’s heated up and then cut into triangular slices, so it’s an easy party appetizer.

Already thinking about what you’d put on your dessert pizza? Let us help you think of some ideas:

  • Slice up a caramel apple and place them all over your pie

  • Glazed nuts can provide a bit of crunchy sweetness

  • Small fudge squares melt perfectly on your pizza as it’s heated 

Fudge Brownies

Who doesn’t love brownies? They’re rich and chewy, and pair well with vanilla ice cream or a glass of milk.

Any of our glazed nuts go perfectly in brownies. We combine premium ingredients in delicious options like pecans, cashews, peanuts, and so much more. Check out our collection of nuts here.

PRO TIP: Do you prefer your brownies fudge-like or cake-like? Fortunately, it’s easy to make a slight change to any recipe to achieve either of these textures. For fudge-like brownies, use more chocolate and butter, and less flour. For cake-like brownies, use more flour and less chocolate and butter. Voila!

Fudgy Peanut Butter Cups


Chilled or at room temperature, peanut butter cups are a favourite candy of ours. The simplest cups need peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar – but there’s one secret way to bring some excitement to your cups: fudge.

That’s right – adding fudge to the centre of your peanut butter cups adds flavour and texture to every single cup.

Check out our collection of homemade fudge here. With over a dozen flavours, we can’t wait to see what you’ll choose for your peanut butter cups.

You can also shop our own handmade peanut butter cups here.

Cashew Bars 

Chewy and crisp, these cookie bars pack a ton of flavour in every square. They feature a softly-textured body and are typically topped with brown sugar, your favourite nut better, and crunchy cashews.

Use Bruce County Nut & Fudge’s Coconut Cashews in your cashew bars. These nuts pack a kick of tropical sweetness in every bite. You’ll feel like your taste buds are lounging on the beach, whether you bake with these nuts or eat them on your own.

At Bruce County Nut & Fudge, we prioritize creativity in everything we do. That’s why we constantly go back to the drawing board to think of new caramel apple flavours, nut assortments, and fudge treats.

Likewise, we know many of you love to experiment with sweets as well. That’s why we hope to liven up your pantry with our premium line of treats.

Next time you bake a cake, pie, batch of cookies, or anything else, incorporate something from Nut & Fudge in your creation – you won’t regret it.
