OMG ! Creamy, Crunchy, Salty, Dreamy GOODNESS … this one has it all ! A dark chocolate fudge layer tinged with pretzels topped with a white chocolate caramel layer and sprinkled with pretzels and sea salt. Ahhhhmazing, folks.
- 12 ounces dark chocolate, about 2 cups chips
- 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pretzels
- 8.5 ounces white chocolate, about 1 1/3 cups chips
- 6 ounces sweetened condensed milk
- 15 caramels, unwrapped
- Sea salt
Line a 9×9 pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on each side. You can use these as “handles” to lift the fudge out when it’s done and ready to cut. Spray foil with nonstick spray.
For the fudge layer: Place 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk and the dark chocolate in saucepan over medium low heat and stir until smooth. Fold in chopped pretzels. Pour mixture into prepared pan and using an offset spatula spread evenly. Set aside.
For the caramel layer: Place 6 ounces sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate and unwrapped caramels in a saucepan over medium low heat and stir until melted smooth. (Stir constantly toward the end because the condensed milk will be caramelizing too and can burn easily.) Pour over dark fudge layer and spread evenly.
Sprinkle remaining chopped pretzels on top and press gently into caramel layer. Sprinkle with a touch of sea salt. Try not to eat the whole pan.
Makes 50-60 small pieces of fudge.
