Capt. Rick's Chocolate Caramel Fudge
I have been working on this recipe for a while; according to the guys at the Durham VA Hospital and the ladies at the Raleigh Moose Lodge I have finally got it right. I buy caramel by the 5lb brick but you can buy 2 14oz bags of Kraft Caramels or some other brand, you need a total of l6ozs of caramel.
Make sure you use evaporated milk not condensed.
- 8 oz
- dark or milk chocolate chips or morsels
- 16 oz
- caramel (un-wrapped)
- 1 can(s)
- (12 oz) evaportaed milk
- 2 c
- white sugar
- 1/2 c
- (1 stick) butter cut into chunks
- 1 3/5 c
- mini marshmallows
- 2 tsp
- vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp
Stirring constantly over medium/high heat bring to a boil and continue to boil for an additional 5 minutes (this is important, do not boil for more than 5 minutes or less than 4).
Remove from heat and add in the vanilla and chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is completely combined.
Pour the caramel mixture over the top of the fudge. Using a knife swirl the caramel into the fudge.
