By some Christmas miracle, I have not gained 20 lbs from all the fudge-making I have been doing lately. This caramel is my favorite of the week – it’s made with Dulce de Leche, which is a rich, sweetened condensed milk that has a natural caramel flavor. It’s excellent for baking and candy-making…which is precisely what I used it for
The idea for this delicious Dulce de Leche Fudge occurred while grocery shopping in the baking aisle. After picking up some sweetened condensed milk for a poke cake, my eyes landed on the Dulce de Leche, and I knew I needed to make fudge with it. This recipe is so easy, and you can use any chocolate! I went with dark and semi-sweet because I love dark chocolate, but anything would work well. Make it your own!
Although the Dulce de Leche doesn’t have a prominent caramel flavor in this recipe, it does make the fudge richer and creamier. Another thing to keep in mind is that if you use dark chocolate, the Dulce de Leche will be more subdued.
So put on your yoga pants, make a big batch of this stuff, and eat to your heart’s content. Then make some extra for your best friend—she deserves it! Here’s to celebrating with oodles of delicious fudge!
