Twix Caramel Fudge

Chunks of yummy Twix chocolate bar mixed through smooth and creamy salted caramel fudge. 

I know we’re all going through difficult, uncertain times and I fully understand that you might be finding it hard to get access to ingredients at the moment, but I hope to continue spreading positivity and share recipes with you based on ingredients that are currently available to me. The last week I’ve truly been surprised at how many people have visited my blog for recipes and sharing pictures of recipes they’ve been baking – something I’m extremely grateful for and further encourages me to carry on publishing content on my little corner of the internet.

So today, I have a delicious treat for you try. Let’s crack on with a new recipe.

Say hello to this glorious Twix Caramel Fudge.

I know I say it every time, but this fudge recipe is special! One bite and you’re gonna reach for piece after piece – I know that because that’s exactly what I do every time I’ve made this fudge! This fudge is super decadent and sweet, so you can cut the pieces of fudge however big or small you want – some of my pieces were different sizes. This recipe makes roughly 40 small pieces of fudge, minus a few pieces you’re probably likely to devour as soon as you’ve sliced the fudge up!

I’ve created a few fabulous fudge recipes, including this Bourbon Biscuit Fudge and a blog favourite for many years, Custard Cream Fudge, but I’ve always been determined to share more.

I hadn’t made fudge since sharing my bourbon biscuit version last year, which is ironic because I promised to share more fudge creations of mine sooner. I think I just got carried away with all the other delicious recipes I’ve discovered along the way.

The first time I made this caramel fudge, the quantities were wrong as I made too much fudge for the tin I was using, so when I came to cut it up the fudge hadn’t properly set and was very soft and not particularly easy to cut into neat pieces. Though the taste was spot on, I knew the recipe needed altering before I was confident sharing it.

When I started considering new fudge flavours to share with you, I realised that I’ve never shared a caramel-flavoured fudge with you before. I’m caramel obsessed, which you might have already guessed with me sharing these Butterscotch Cupcakes with Caramel Buttercream and this No-Bake Cheesecake, both showcasing yummy caramel/dulce de leche.

While I think this fudge is delicious left as it is, I put some add-ins into my batch of fudge. Caramel/millionaire’s shortbread is a popular bake, it’s basically a shortbread base, topped with a layer of caramel and then it has a thin layer of chocolate on top of the caramel.

To incorporate the millionaire’s theme into this fudge, I chopped up some chocolate bars and mixed those through the fudge. I chose Twix bars as these are one of my favourite chocolate bars. I don’t actually eat chocolate bars that often, so when I want to treat myself to one I tend to go for a bar or confectionery that has biscuit/cookie, caramel and chocolate.

The Twix bars work amazingly well in this caramel fudge. I love the smooth, creamy fudge that melts in the mouth and then the crunch and chewiness the Twix adds to every scrumptious bite of this fudge.

(Makes 40 pieces)

Ingredients:

240ml (1 cup) sweetened condensed milk

180g (1 cup) dark or light brown sugar

115g (1/2 cup or 1 stick) butter (salted or unsalted)

2 tablespoons golden syrup – light corn syrup can be used as a substitute

A generous pinch of salt – table salt or sea salt flakes are both great to use

200g (1 and 1/3 cup) white chocolate, chopped

10 x 23g Twix chocolate bars, chopped – I used half milk chocolate and half white chocolate Twix

Method:

  1. Line a 20cm / 8-inch square baking tin with parchment paper and set aside for later. In a large saucepan place the condensed milk, sugar, butter, golden syrup and salt. Heat gently on a low heat stirring until all the sugar has dissolved. Turn the heat up to medium and continue stirring the fudge until it’s simmering and has thickened and coats the back of a spatula/spoon – this will take about 5 minutes.
  2. Once the fudge has thickened, remove it from the heat and stir through the white chocolate and continue to mix until all the chocolate has melted.
  3. Gently fold through 3/4 of the chopped Twix bars – be quick with this and don’t over mix otherwise the chocolate bars will break down and melt too much. The chocolate will melt slightly, but swirled through the fudge this looks and tastes really good!
  4. Transport the fudge mixture into prepared tin and top with the remaining chopped Twix bars.
  5. Cover the fudge and leave it set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight for best results. Once the fudge has set, cut it up in pieces and serve.

Recipe Notes:

  • Fudge will keep stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Without the chocolate bars incorporated into the fudge it will last for up to a fortnight.
  • I bought two packs of Twix that had 9 x 23g bars in each pack. If you only want to buy one pack, then you can use 9 bars (instead of 10) chopped up in the fudge.
  • Following on from the note above, you can use supermarket own brand chocolate caramel bars if preferred.
