There’s not an ounce of chocolate in this fudge. So if you’re looking for chocolate move along. If you’re a caramel lover, you’ve come to the right place! Kids love this creamy caramel fudge and so do the grown ups! Its super rich but oh so wickedly delicious.
I started experimenting with this recipe when I was a ‘poor’ graduate student and buying extras like chocolate and cocoa powder were just not in the plan.
I’ve heard this called Russian Fudge (guess Chocolate was an issue for them too) but the recipe calls for corn syrup, which I cannot stand. And I think this is probably similar to what some call RedHead Fudge (sorry Vicki)(though I’m not sure). What I do know, is that this creamy caramel fudge is incredibly rich and delicious. Caramel lovers will gobble it up! My recipe here is a little extended from my original version, which included melting the brown sugar with the white sugar milk mixture. The candy came out a little grainy, which I think was the sugar never being melted enough. So, I did the simple syrup and it worked! I use real butter, real vanilla and half and half. I’ve not tested this with margarine or skim milk so I couldn’t tell you the results. But you’re making candy, not diet food, so go ahead and make the full on recipe!Print
