Salted Caramel Fudge




Salted caramel is all the rage right now and although I may be a little late to the party in finally making something with these opposing flavours, this fudge was worth the wait! It's sweet, it's salty, it's melt in the mouth, it's delicious!


In a large heavy bottomed pan I put 1 can (397g) condensed milk, 150ml semi skimmed milk, 115g butter, 300g granulated sugar, and 150g golden caster sugar. I heated it on low until all the sugar had dissolved.


Once the sugar was completely dissolved, I turned up the heat and let the fudge boil for 10 minutes. I kept stirring it during this time.


I beat the fudge until it started to set, then poured it into a prepared pan lined with greaseproof paper. I sprinkled sea salt over the top of the fudge, I didn't measure the amount I used, this part depends on how salty you like it! I gently pressed the salt into the fudge to make sure it stuck.


I left the fudge overnight to set and the next day I cut it up into pieces. It was very tasty and melt in the mouth! The saltyness balances out how sweet fudge is. Fudge is great for giving as a gift and I have given it out at Christmas and for Valentine's Day before. This fudge went to a friend for her birthday, to my Dad and stepmum, and then the leftovers were enjoyed by myself and my boyfriend. You get at least three decent sized gifts out of this batch. Perfect for...dare I say it in September...Christmas!


I'm linking this recipe up with Treat Petite, hosted by Cakeyboi this month and myself on alternate months.

  1. Way too early to think about Christmas! But salted caramel sounds amazing. Looks creamy and delicious and would definitely make a great gift (if I could bare to let any go)!

    1. Haha I know, but I do like to be prepared. The trouble I have is getting it past my fudge monster boyfriend!

  2. Mmm fudge, funnily enough I was thinking about fudge on the way to work this morning and debating how long before Christmas you could make it as gifts and it'd still be OK. I guess the problem is not eating it rather than whether it would go off! This looks great, I love how you can see the flecks of salt!
