I have NEVER been able to make fudge. But, I think I may have found "my" recipe.
Pralines and cream fudge! Pralines are one of my favorite candies, so I thought I would give it a try and I am glad I did.
Four ingredients, that is it. White chocolate, caramels, sweetened condensed milk and pecans.
Melt the chocolate and sweetened milk on a very low heat. Stir constantly. Pour half in the bottom of a 9 x 9 pan. Top with a 1/2 cup of pecans. Warm one cup of caramels and two tablespoons water in the microwave. 1 minute stir, 30 seconds stir until all caramels are melted and pour over pecans.
I reheated the remaining white chocolate mixture a bit. Then just top of your fudge. I cooled on the counter for three hours, but still needed to pop it in the refrigerator to be able to cut nice squares. I wish I had used parchment paper or wax paper instead of foil.
Who knew, I can make fudge! A whole plateful of fudge too!
I found the recipe on Pinterest, here.
Next time I make it, I will put a little bit thicker layer of white chocolate on the bottom. Some caramel seaped through to the bottom of my fudge. Also, I didn't have a 9 x 9 pan. That would have made for thicker fudge pieces. I used the smallest rectangular pan that I had available.
