Creamy and soft homemade caramel fudge coated in milk chocolate with a dashing of salt.
- 60 grams (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
- 240 ml (1 cup) sweetened condensed milk
- 80 ml (1/3 cup) golden syrup
- 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
- 150 grams (1 cup) good quality white chocolate, chopped
- 350 grams (2 and 1/3 cup ) good quality milk chocolate
- Grease an 8 inch square baking tin and line with baking or parchment paper. Place a medium saucepan on a low heat and slowly melt the butter. Once melted, add in the condensed milk, golden syrup and sugar. Stir until combined and the sugar is dissolved. Add a pinch of salt.
- Turn up the heat to medium and continue to stir until the mixture is simmering and starting to thicken. This may take a while, 5-6 minutes or so. Remove the caramel mixture from the heat and stir in all the pieces of white chocolate until melted.
- Pour the fudge into the prepared tray. Smooth the top and then sprinkle salt over the top. Place in the fridge for 3-4 hours to set or overnight. Line a cookie tray with baking paper and then chop the fudge into small, bite-sized pieces. Pop them onto the tray and add them to the freezer while you melt the milk chocolate.
- I like to use the stove top method so the chocolate stays warm. Place a small saucepan on medium heat with about 5cm or 2 inches of water in the bottom. Pop the chocolate into a small heatproof bowl and place the bowl on top of the saucepan, ensuring the bottom of the bowl will not touch the water below. Gently stir as the steam slowly melts the chocolate and it becomes silky and smooth.
- Once the chocolate has completely melted, remove the saucepan from the heat but keep the bowl on top. Grab the fudge from the freezer and one at a time, pop them into the chocolate. Swirl each one around until it is fully coated and then lift it out with a fork and place it back onto the tray. Before the chocolate fully sets, add a sprinkling of salt on top. Continue until you have done all the fudge and then place them back into the fridge to fully set for another 20 minutes.
