Salted Caramel Fudge. Mmmm!!

Salted Caramel Fudge. Mmmm!!

salted-caramel-fudge2

I have a slight obsession with all things salted caramel. For me it's the perfect blend of savoury and sweet. i.e. a little bit of savoury and a WHOLE lot of sweet! I found this recipe from taste.com.au after doing a random google search. It was the one that appeared at the top of the page and since giving it a bash a few months ago I've never used another recipe. Haven't felt the need to. Why fix that which isn't even remotely broken?

Before advancing any further, Warriors, we need to talk about cups and spoons! Any recipes I post on this here blog will use the measurements of grams, ounces, cups and spoons, depending upon the recipe of the day. I am therefore going to assume from this point forward that you have at your disposal a) a set of weighing scales and b) a set of measuring cups and spoons. Something resembling these which you will find in the "home" section of any supermarket:

Weighing scales and measuring cups are to the baker what Polish porn and bearded ladies are to Eurovision. (And if you have no idea what I'm talking about then you need to read THIS post from yesterday).

In terms of equipment all you will need is:

1) a 4cm deep, 20cm square cake pan (I have a rectangular one. Just use what you have)

2) a heavy based saucepan for even heat and to prevent the fudge from sticking to the bottom.

3) greaseproof/parchment paper

Ingredients

395g can condensed milk

1 cup brown sugar

2 tbsp glucose syrup

1/4 cup golden syrup

125g butter, chopped

180g white chocolate, finely chopped

Method

  1. Grease pan a 4cm deep, 20cm (base) square cake pan. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang on all sides.

  2. Place condensed milk, sugar, glucose syrup, golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, without boiling, for 10 minutes or until mixture is glossy and sugar has dissolved.

  3. Increase heat to medium-low. Bring to a simmer, stirring. Cook, stirring constantly, for 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture thickens and comes away from side of pan. Remove from heat. Stir in chocolate until combined and melted. Spoon into prepared pan. Smooth top. Sprinkle with salt, pressing in with the back of a spoon to secure. Set aside for 30 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 6 hours or until firm.

  4. Cut into whatever shape and size you desire.  You could , for example, play it safe with the traditional square formation or really live life on the edge and cut some out in the shape of a heart.  Crazy!

Whatever shape you decide upon the incredible creaminess of the fudge will not be affected one iota.

I shall now leave your drooling and with an intense urge to make these salted caramel morsels right here, right now.  Why not make them with me??  I've made a step-by-step video that you can follow if you fancy a little up close and personal baking time with the GW. We may not be together in person but Warriors are always together in spirit.

  1. I am def going to try this fudge recipe, I am more of an original fudge kinda gal but this sounds mouth watering. It’s healthy right??!!

  2. Looks delish! I will have to give this a go. The white chocolate is an interesting addition, extra sweetness is always a good thing! Can you get glucose syrup in the home baking section at the supermarket?

  3. Oh I’m def gonna go have a go at this one!

  4. Me thinks I might need a large number if Zumba sessions to burn these off doubt I would be able to resist eating them all

  5. Well, if you know anything about the Arizona Jones’, you know we like our sweets. My mom and Brooke can attest to that. I might actually try making this because it looks incredible. And I’m all about easy cooking. πŸ˜€ Now, if I can just figure out the American versions of Glucose Syrup and Golden Syrup… I’ll bet Google knows. πŸ˜€

  6. Love salted caramel and fudge!!! Cant wait to try and make this

  8. Oh my days I can’t wait to try this!!! LOVE salted caramel πŸ˜‰

  9. With a little time on my hands at the moment I shall be resurecting the baking bug. I’ve just asked ‘the boy’ if he likes salted caramel. His answer was he’s not sure he’s ever had it. As soon as I mentioned Salted Caramel Fudge he suddenly replied, ” oh now I think I’ll definitely like that!!” And obviously being home made it will be negative calories and amazingly healthy….right? Xx

  10. Oh HEAVEN!!! Sometimes it is a good thing you live far away – I would be FAT!

  11. This fudge is so easy to make and I can honestly say it tastes better than anything I have ever bought. If you like or even love fudge go try!

  12. Oh yum, yum! I feel FORCED to make this! πŸ˜‰ Thanks Ceri. xx

  13. Wow!! This just looks sooooo scrumptious!! But as I’m trying to lose a few pounds( well more than a few, but we won’t talk about that!!) I will wait till I’ve lost those few pounds, then make this!! Haha, sounds ridiculous, but will need a treat after all my hard work!!

      And it is most definitely the treat to have! Keep up with the weight loss, Michelle. YOU CAN DO IT!!! xxxxx

  14. Your fudge looks perfect. I doubt mine would look so good. However with all that condensed milk, sugar and chocolate, it’s sure to taste great!

  15. Just made this fudge waiting on it setting tastes amazing can’t wait to try the finished result so easy too xx

  16. Oooooohhhhhhh, man!!! I can’t wait to try this!!!

  17. Ceri, I have just made (…and ummmm, eaten (!)

  18. I’ve just made this, if the finished product tastes as good as the bit I’ve just scraped out of the pan it will be delicious!

  19. I really want to try this recipe it looks so good!

  20. Tried to make these last night however, made the mistake of buying evaporated milk instead of condensed milk. I checked online to see if there was a difference and whether it would still work. One website said that condensed milk is basically sweetened evaporated milk. Armed with that knowledge I thought it would be okay. Evaporated milk 1, chezabelle 0. It did not set. Ah well, I will try again tomorrow. I will feed this loveliness to my man!!

  21. So on the 5th attempt at making this I have finally perfected it. Definitely worth the efforts. Yum-a-frickin-licious!!! X
