Turtle Fudge

19

Turtle Fudge

Yield: 27-30 pcs

INGREDIENTS:

8 ounces pecan halves (I used roasted, lightly salted)
25 caramel squares, unwrapped (about 1 heaping cup)
1/4 cup cream or half-and-half, divided
about 16 ounces roughly chopped chocolate, melted (I used 8 ounces dark and 8 ounces milk, both Trader Joe’s Pound Plus bars)
sea salt, optional for sprinkling

19a

Directions:

  1. Line two baking sheets or large platters with parchment paper. It’s helpful if they will fit in either fridge or freezer.
  2. Make small piles of pecans, using 5 to 6 pieces per pile. Overlap the pecans some to reduce gaps so the caramel doesn’t seep through.
  3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add the caramels, half of the cream (reserve the remainder), and heat on high power to melt. It will probably take about 3 to 4 minutes total, but you must stop and stir the mixture every 30 seconds so you don’t burn it. The first few times, stirring is almost futile but eventually the caramels soften enough to be stirred smooth. Take your time, don’t overheat or heat too quickly, and keep stirring; it will come together. If the mixture seems thick and needs more cream, add the remaining amount. I used 1/4 cup total and have made the recipe with both Kraft brand caramels and Werther’s Baking Caramels, but caramels vary and you may need less cream than I did. The caramel is runny and loose when it first comes together, but firms up quite a bit as it cools. Alternatively, you can melt caramels on the stove over low heat, using caution and stirring frequently.
  4. Add about 1 tablespoon caramel to the top of each pecan pile; set aside.
  5. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add 8 ounces chocolate and heat to melt, about 1 minute on high power. Heat in 15-second increments until chocolate can be stirred smooth. I prefer working in smaller batches with chocolate and recommend doing the same and not heating all 16 ounces at once; melt additional chocolate as necessary.
  6. Add about 2 tablespoons chocolate to the top of each pecan cluster by dolloping it on top and letting it fall down the sides.
  7. Optionally add a pinch of sea salt to each Turtle.
  8. Allow Turtles to firm up at room temp (will take many hours) or in the fridge or freezer (about 15 minutes) before serving. Turtles will keep airtight at room temperature for weeks, or in the fridge or freezer for many months.

Amaretto Fudge

Yield:  9″x 9″ (36pcs)

3 cups chocolate chips

1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons Amaretto Liquor (see note)

1/2 cup sliced toasted almonds

Once the chocolate chips are completely melted, remove from heat and stir in vanilla and Amaretto. Spread quickly in prepared pan. Immediately sprinkle with almonds. Set at room temperature until cool, and then chill until hardened.

Notes:

If you don’t drink liquor, you can substitute 1 teaspoon almond extract for the Amaretto. Or, try a different flavor liquor for a different kind of fudge!

To toast almonds, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for just a few minutes, stirring occasionally. DO NOT leave the room or they will burn!

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

chocolate walnut fudge LTBB

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

INGREDIENTS

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

2 tblsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and softened, plus more for brushing

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, very finely chopped

1 tsp. vanilla

⅛ tsp. kosher salt

1 cup half & half

2¼ cups sugar

2 tblsp. light corn syrup

Topping:

Walnut (or anything else you want)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Line a 9×5 baking pan with foil, leaving about 2 inches extra to help remove the fudge later. Brush the foil with butter.
  2. Brush a large metal bowl with butter, add 2 tablespoons cut up butter, chopped chocolate, vanilla extract and set aside.
  3. In a medium pot, over medium-high heat, heat the half and half until hot, but not boiling. Pour the sugar and corn syrup in and bring to boil, constantly stirring and making sure that the bottom doesn’t scorch.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and constantly run a pastry brush dipped in warm water along the sides of the pan (this will dissolve the large sugar crystals that can ruin your syrup).
  5. Attach a candy thermometer to the pan and leave the mixture undisturbed (!!!!) until the mixture reaches 234-238 F (Mine took about 1.5 hours). If you don’t have a thermometer you can drop a drop of syrup in cold water and if it rolls into a soft ball, it’s ready)
  6. Working quickly, pour the mixture over the prepared chocolate-butter mixture. Do not scrape the bottom of the pan with syrup, there might be large sugar crystals that are waiting to turn your syrup into a sugary mess. Clean the thermometer and clip it to the bowl. Let the chocolate mixture cool, undisturbed (if you mix it, the chocolate will seize), until it reaches 110-115F. Set the bowl over a large bowl of iced water, to speed up the process.
  7. Brush the peddle attachment with butter and beat it on medium speed until just incorporated. Reduce the speed to low and beat until the fudge begins to loose it’s sheen and hold it’s shape. Do NOT overmix or the fudge will become hard. Scrape the fudge into the prepared pan and pat it into an even layer with a butter spatula. Smooth the top.
  8. Sprinkle with desired toppings and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour. Score the fudge into squares with a knife and let sit for another hour before slicing.
  9. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 week at room temperature or 2 weeks in the fridge. Consume at room temperature.
