It’s simple to make white chocolate caramel fudge with cashews and will only take about 5 minutes, so let’s get started.

Prepare your pan: Line an 8×8 or 9×9 pan with parchment paper. You can spray the pan with cooking spray to help the parchment paper stick to the pan. You may also use tin foil sprayed with cooking oil for easy removal.

Chop Cashews: Give your cashews a rough chop, making sure not to go overboard. Leave some more significant chunks for that extra crunch.

Make the White Chocolate Fudge: In a medium microwavable mixing bowl, add white chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and heavy cream. Stir together and place in the microwave, and heat for 90 seconds. Immediately remove and beat together until smooth.

Make the caramel: In a small microwavable bowl, add the unwrapped caramels and heavy cream and heat in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the caramels are melted and smooth.

Make your fudge layers: Pour 1/2 of your white chocolate fudge at the bottom of the prepared pan. Then top with 1/2 of the caramel by dropping the caramel in spoonfuls on top of the white chocolate fudge. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the cashews. Repeat layers; add white chocolate, then caramel and remaining cashews. Swirl it with a butter knife, ensuring you do not mix the caramel into the white chocolate. We’re going for that cool marble effect, you know?

    The creamy fudge with the nutty and caramel and chocolaty layers—such a fun and delightful treat for the holidays. Can’t wait to make these with my family!

  2. how could this be adapted for a stovetop version. with both parts, just heat the liquids first, then add the caramels / chocolate?

    1. Yes, that would work just fine. I would use a double-broiler to make both the fudge and caramel. Otherwise the ratios would be just the same.

    1. Hmmmm, because that is how they are local, but when I did a Google Search on the recipe, I saw that they also have peanuts, I need to try that. You can easily subs the cashews for peanuts.

        Thanks! That would have been my guess.
        This recipe is wonderful. I’m making my 2nd batch in 3 days because the tasty fudge disappeared in the blink of an eye!

  3. Do you need to “beat” the vanilla chips, condensed milk and heavy cream with a mixer/beater or just stir with a spoon?
