Caramel fudge is very easy to make, and taste absolutely heavenly
Caramel fudge is very easy to make. They taste absolutely heavenly, and the finished fudge literally melts in your mouth. This is a slightly different recipe than you will find elsewhere. A recipe that adds more flavour depth. You make everything in a saucepan. If you have all the ingredients by hand, you make everything ready in approx. 15 minutes.
125 g butter (good quality butter)
400 g of caramelized condensed milk (alt. Sweet, regular condensed milk)
150 g demerara sugar
1 tablespoon light syrup
100 g of white chocolate
2 teaspoon real vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon salt (good quality flat salt – can be omitted if you wish)
- Cut the white chocolate in coarse pieces, and set aside.
- Use a thick-bottomed kettle. Melt the butter.
- Add condensed milk, brown sugar, vanilla sugar and syrup. Bring to a boil and simmer for approx. 10-12 minutes. You will notice that the mixture thickens slightly when ready. Be sure to stir constantly.
- Remove the pan from the plate. Put in the chocolate and salt. Stir until the chocolate is completely dissolved, and the mixture is smoot.
Use a 20 x 20 cm or 15 x 15 cm shaped mould. The smaller the shape, the thicker the fudge you get. Fudge is rich, so I prefer smaller fudge. You must have covered the mould with parchment in beforehand. If you brush some oil on the bottom and on the edge, the parchment will stick better. Pour the mixture in. Then put the mould in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 5 hours until the fudge has set. Take the fudge out of the mould and cut them into neat squares.
Tip: Caramelized condensed milk can be difficult to obtain. Alternatively, you can only use plain sweet condensed milk (i.e. not Viking milk). You will still get good fudge, but not that depth of caramel flavour. You can make it caramelized by boiling sweet condensed milk for 3 -4 hours. Then make sure to wrap the box in a kitchen towel and always ensure to cover with enough water.
Served: Anytime. Fudge keeps well for several days in a tight box in the fridge, but they will hardly stay there for long.
Allergy: Gluten-free. Lactose. As far as I know, there is not possible to obtain lactose-free condensed milk. High FOODMAP is due to lactose.
