This Dulce de Leche Fudge is an awesome addition to a holiday dessert table! It’s rich and creamy deliciousness makes it very dangerous to be alone with, you’ll never want to stop devouring it. Whether it’s just a personal batch or a gift for a loved one, this fudge never fails to bring happiness and holiday cheer!
With all the fudge making around our house it really is a Christmas miracle that I haven’t put on 20lbs. Thank goodness for my Fitbit I love it – trying to hit a minimum of 15k steps a day. Some days are easier than others, but really this holiday season I have gone over 20k steps in a day. So cheers to more fudge, right?! I love this caramel, friends. Honestly, it is the favorite of the week. Made with Dulce de Leche which is a rich, sweetened condensed milk. This milk has a caramel taste making it great to bake and make candy with which is exactly what I did.
The idea came for this Dulce de Leche Fudge came to me while I was at the grocery store in the baking aisle. I was picking up some sweetened condensed milk for a poke cake and my eyes came upon the Dulce de Leche which was right next to the sweetened condensed milk and I just knew instantly that I needed to make fudge with it. What I love about this recipe besides the easiness of it, is that it could be made with any type of chocolate. I went a mixture of dark and semi-sweet because I love dark chocolate, but really anything would work. Make it your own.
The Dulce de Leche doesn’t shine through in this recipe with a strong caramel taste but it does add to the richness and creaminess of the fudge. A note to make is the darker the chocolate the more subtle the Dulce de Leche will be.
So go get on some yoga pants, make a batch or two and eat until your little heart is content. Then make some more for your best friend, she needs this too!
Cheers to fudge, fudge and well, more fudge.
