Christmas salted caramel fudge truffles
Are you looking to make some homemade Christmas gifts for your loved ones?
Well, these salted caramel fudge truffles are the perfect stocking stuffer and will have your loved ones feeling super special.
What you’ll need:
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white chocolate, broken into pieces
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups good quality dark or milk chocolate
Crushed peanut or hazelnuts, optional
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, add butter, sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar.
Heat in the microwave for approximately 3 minutes, stopping to stir every minute. By the end of the 3 minutes, the butter should be completely melted, and the sugar dissolved.
Give the caramel a good stir, then heat for another 3 minutes, making sure you stir every 30 seconds. If you don’t the caramel will get too hot and bubble over – making a mess in your microwave.
By now, your caramel should be very thick and golden in colour. Add white chocolate. Give it a good stir to make sure the chocolate is melted, and the mixture is smooth. Lastly, stir in sea salt.
Place caramel fudge in the fridge to firm up for at least 3-4 hours.
Leave the caramel fudge at room temperature for 5 minutes or so. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.
Scoop out tablespoons of the caramel fudge and roll into a ball using your hands. Dip each ball into the melted dark chocolate. Use a fork to scoop out the ball and place it on an oven tray lined with baking paper.
Repeat with remaining caramel fudge truffles. Top each truffle with crushed nuts (if using). Store truffles in the fridge.
