Recipe Notes

  • *If a chocolate caramel swirl fudge is desired, prepare the two layers at the same time; so they are both melted at the same time, lay down the chocolate and then immediately pour the caramel over in vertical lines. Using a butter-knife, swirl the layers together.
  • Store any leftover fudge in an airtight container in the fridge.
