Equipment

  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips 340 grams
  • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk 234 grams
  • ¼ cup salted butter 57 grams (½ stick)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams
  • ½ cup caramel topping 160 grams

    2 cups milk chocolate chips, ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk, ¼ cup salted butter, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Microwave the mixture in intervals of ten to thirty seconds or until everything is mixed smoothly together. Make sure this is done in intervals.
  • Once everything is melted, pour in the vanilla extract and stir until combined. Make sure you do this quickly, as the chocolate may start to harden. The mixture should be quite thick.

  • Quickly pour mixture into a greased and parchment-lined 8x8 inch baking pan. Set aside.
  • Drizzle the caramel topping over the chocolate to create caramel swirls throughout the mixture.

Notes

  • Be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment. If you don't, the fudge can get stuck to the tin. Let the parchment overlap the tin so that you can remove it easily.
  • Melt the chocolate slowly in the microwave, stirring between intervals, so that it doesn't burn. You can also melt it in a double boiler on the stovetop.
  • Storage: Store salted caramel chocolate fudge in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
