Caramel Pecan Turtle Fudge

11

Caramel  Pecan Turtle Fudge

Yield: 8×8 or 9×9 pan

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels

1 cup milk chocolate morsels, I like Ghirardelli’s (just don’t get the cheap stuff, the chocolate is the star)

1 – 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

3.5 ounces marshmallow cream, half of a jar you can just eyeball it

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

30 unwrapped caramels

2 cups whole or chopped pecans

Non-stick spray

Directions: 

Spray an 8×8 or 9×9 pan generously with non-stick spray, or line it with foil. Make sure that you go up the sides with your foil as well. I would highly suggest using foil it makes it so easy to take out the fudge!

Set aside.

In a large saucepan, combine all chocolate chips, add 3/4 can of sweetened condensed milk (just eye ball it) over medium-low heat (about 10-15 minutes). Stir constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla, stir.

Add marshmallow cream, stir vigorously until smooth. You may have to return it to low heat for a minute or two, to get it completely smooth again. Turn off heat. If it become slightly stiff, its okay it will still taste just fine.

Press 1/2 of the mixture into prepared pan, doesn’t have to be exact. Leave the remaining 1/2 of your chocolate in the saucepan on your warm stove do not place on the burner you were just using it will burn the chocolate.

Sprinkle pecans evenly across the top of your chocolate, lightly press pecans into fudge using the bottom of another 8×8 or 9×9 pan. Don’t press them too far in, you want to see them later when you cut your fudge.

NOTE: You only want only a single layer of pecans, if you double them up, the fudge won’t hold together.

Place pan in refrigerator (or freezer) to set up. About 10-15 minutes.

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine unwrapped caramels and the rest of your sweetened condensed milk, (1/4 can). Heat on low and stir until melted and smooth.

Pour all but 2 tablespoons of the caramel evenly over fudge layer. Reserve 2 tablespoons for drizzling later.

Place in refrigerator or freezer for 15 minutes to set up.

Re-heat reserved 1/2 of your chocolate and stir until smooth again. Press and spread over caramel layer.

Place in fridge or freezer to set for 5 minutes.

Re-melt your leftover caramel on the stove and drizzle it over the top of your fudge.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before cutting, slice into even squares and devour immediately.

*If you are having a hard time cutting the fudge after removing it from the refrigerator let it set at room temperature for 10-15 minutes and then cut.

Notes : This chocolate part of this fudge recipe is not smooth like a the caramel layer. It is a little more thick, and you will need to press this in the pan. Once you have made it a few times, it gets smoother. But until then it still is amazing, even if it isn’t as smooth as you think. Just finish it, you won’t be disappointed.

Kids review: Proof that they got my taste, they love this fudge just as much, if not more than I do. (PS: So does the hubby! Who supposedly doesn’t like chocolate…right!)

Chocolate Fudge

24

Chocolate Fudge

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 lb semi-sweet chocolate, chips or block chocolate chopped up
  • 7 oz. jar marshmallow cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

1 Prepare everything in advance and have ready to go – chopped chocolate, chopped nuts, best to have marshmallow cream already out of the jar and in a bowl that you can easily scrape out with a rubber spatula. Line a 13″x9″x2″ baking pan with foil, butter the inside (alternatively, line the pan with waxed paper).

2 In a 3-quart, thick-bottomed saucepan, bring sugar, butter, and milk to a rolling boil on medium heat, stirring constantly once the mixture begins to bubble. Once the mixture reaches a boil, set your timer to 4 minutes. You will want to remove the mixture from the heat once it reaches 234°F on a candy thermometer (234°F at sea-level, adjust for altitude) which should take about 4 minutes. If you don’t have a candy thermometer, just go with the four minutes.

3 Remove from heat. Quickly stir in chocolate and marshmallow cream. Once those have melted and are well mixed, stir in the vanilla and then the walnuts.

4 Pour into prepared pan.

5 Cool to room temperature before slicing (about 4 hours). You may want to chill in the refrigerator to get it more firm.

Stir in chocolate and marshmallows; remove pan from heat and stir until smooth. (I found I actually needed to return the pan to the lowest heat setting to get the marshmallows to melt.  I definitely got an arm workout stirring…)

Store fudge in refrigerator.
