Ingredients
 

Fudge

  • 500g of chocolate
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs vanilla essence
  • 1 x 395gm can condensed milk

Soft Top

  • 1 x 395gm can condensed milk (or 1 x can of Caramel Top'n'Fill caramel - though it's not as nice as the real thing)
  • 3/4 tsp crushed sea salt

Instructions
 

Make Caramel

  • Take one can of sweetened condensed milk, place in your slow cooker
  • Cover it WELL with water, ideally up to an inch over the top of the cans at all times during cooking (very important)
  • Cook on high for around 6hrs
  • Cool FULLY before opening (very important)
  • Note: If you don't wish to or don't have time to cook your own you can substitute the canned caramel for this

Salt Caramel

  • Mix 1/2 tsp of salt into your caramel and stir well.
  • Check taste and add more salt only if you prefer yours saltier (not the remaining 1/4 tsp will still be sprinkled on top of the final fudge also)

Cook Fudge

  • Place all fudge ingredients into slow cooker
  • On Low - lid off
  • Stir every 15mins or so for 90mins - use a non-wooden spoon to stir
  • Pour into lined tin to refrigerate till set

Assemble

  • When fudge is set pour your salted caramel over top of fudge
  • Sprinkle remaining 1/4 tsp of salt over the top
  • Return to fridge for an hour just to ensure it's well chilled prior to cutting
  • Note: Caramel soft top will remain soft, not set like the fudge. So when cut store pieces in single layer to avoid smearing of the caramel. Keep in fridge until serving.

  1. What difference does it make if you don’t let the can cool fully? I opened mine after 10mins maybe and it tasted fine?
