Hello everyone! (Sorry I forgot to post yesterday, I’ll have two posts up today). This recipe comes from Passion for Baking.com. This website is amazing, filled with all kinds of desserts and candy. Enjoy!
Old fashioned dark caramel fudge Recipe
1 1/3 cup (300 g) regular sugar
1/4 cup (50 ml) water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon (130 g) unsalted butter
a pinch of salt
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Bring out a small baking pan, approx. 10 x 4 inches. Line with baking paper and set aside.
Put the sugar and water into a saucepan, place on a medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved. (This part will decide whether you’ll have a nice and creamy caramel, or a grainy caramel.)
When the sugar has dissolved – stop stirring and turn up the heat to high. Let it bubble away until the color has turned a golden, quite dark caramel. This will take about 3-5 minutes, so don’t leave the stove.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter. Put back on the heat (medium) for a few minutes or until the butter has melted completely. Stir in the vanilla, salt and the sweetened condensed milk.
Stir until the mixture thickens.
This will take about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into the lined pan, then chill for at least 5 hours, or overnight.
Let rest for some hours
Cut into squares.
Wrap each caramel fudge in a piece of vaxed paper.
You could of course also dip them in some chocolate, if you do I recommend using tempered chocolate.
