Ingredients

Caramel Fudge

  • 1-14 oz. can condensed milk 396 grams
  • 1/2 cup unwrapped soft caramel candies 3.53 oz, 100 grams (10 to 12 caramels)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • To roll
  • Sprinkles I used gold and chocolate flakes

Instructions

Caramel Fudge

  1. Mix the condensed milk, 1/2 cup unwrapped soft caramel candies, and butter in a small saucepan.
  2. Over medium heat, stir mixture without stopping, while you bring it to a boil.
  3. Once mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium low.
  4. Keep stirring non stop while it cooks.
  5. Don’t stop stirring the mixture, or the fudge will stick to the bottom of the pan.
  6. You should cook it for 5 to 10 minutes. If the mixture starts to stick to the bottom, lower the heat.

  7. To test if the fudge is ready, simply tilt the pan and if the mixture comes off from the bottom of the pan, you’re good to go. Mixture will look shiny and firm. If you run a spatula on the bottom of the pan, fudge will take a few seconds to come together again. You are looking for a very thick stage.

  8. Remove fudge to a buttered plate. Let it cool down until it gets to room temperature and then stick it in the fridge.
  9. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so until it’s cool.
  10. With buttered hands, scoop a small amount of fudge and roll between your palms to form a smooth ball. Coat the ball in shredded coconut, granulated sugar, or sprinkles. Put in small baking cups (I used 1 inch ones)
  11. Do this until you’re done with all the fudge. You’ll obtain around 20 balls depending on how big you make them.

Storage

  1. Store the Caramel Fudge in the fridge for up to 15 days.
  2. You can also store it in the freezer for up to 2 months, make sure it’s well packaged. To thaw it, simply place it in the fridge a couple hours before serving.

Recipe Notes

Cooking time: cooking time will vary a lot depending on the brands of condensed milk and caramel candy you use. Please read the recipe above to see what you are looking for in the consistency.

To roll: You can roll the fudge in anything that comes to mind, sprinkles, sugar, shredded coconut, finely chopped nuts.
