Who doesn’t like a bit of fudge? Ok, I don’t really. Honestly… I find it a bit too sweet usually and very sickly. I know you aren’t supposed to eat your own body weight in fudge, not like cake (amiright!), but I still find even one piece just a bit too much. It is actually very rare for something sweet to defeat me so I want to try and make my own fudge so that I could enjoy it like everyone else.
My sweet tooth has a nasty habit of showings itself in the evenings. I am a huge coffee addict and therefore generally immune to it’s heavy awakening properties. Therefore I am able to enjoy an nice cup of Joe every evening once my girls are in bed. It is at this point that I also want something sweet. Usually I will have a pack of biscuits in the house but there is always something more special and delicious about a home baked sweet treat.
I contemplated a lot of ideas; chocolate fudge… I feel my teeth rotting at the thought. Lemon… Seriously? That sounds gross. But eventually I settled on Salted Caramel Fudge.
Caramel can be very sickly but with a little salt to cut through the extreme sweetness this seemed like a good place to start.
I was not wrong. This recipe is both quick and easy and make the most delicious salted caramel fudge.
