Introduction: Caramel Latte Fudge
I love fudge. I think I've mentioned that before in one of my other fudge Instructables. The inspiration for this fudge came from RedditGifts. Last year I participate in the Holiday Exchange and my Santa sent me this amazing coffee flavored fudge, it really did taste like a caramel macchiato. After deciding that the flavor shouldn't be too hard to replicate, I came up with the recipe you see here. Once you have a preferred fudge recipe, meaning that the ingredients and the texture match your preferences, it's only a matter of trial-and-error to be a little creative.
Step 1: Ingredients
-3 cups of sugar
-5oz evaporated milk
-3/4 cup of butter
-7oz marshmallows or marshmallow creme
-1 bag white chocolate chips
-1/4 cup caramel
-1 tsp vanilla
-2 tbs espresso powder *to taste* *fresh made espresso also works*
Step 2: The First Four
Mix the first 4 ingredients (evaporated milk, sugar, butter and marshmallows) together in a large pot over medium-high heat. Stir regularly and bring to a boil.
Step 3: The Chocolate
Let the marshmallow mix boil for about five minutes and then turn off heat and stir in white chocolate chips. Add vanilla and espresso powder.
Step 4: The Caramel
When your chocolate is melted and well mix, add a couple scoops of your caramel to the fudge and stir in. I was trying to get a marbly-effect but I think the caramel I used was too soft. Next time I'll try caramel squares.
Transfer your fudge to a greased dish and let cool in the fridge until the fudge is set.
