easy fudge recipe

I’m going to help you break at least one of your New Year’s resolutions with this fudge recipe. This Dulce de Leche fudge is super easy to make and slap yo mama good (WARNING …please do NOT slap yo mama).

Dulce de leche is simply caramelized sweetened  condensed milk, you can usually find dulce de leche ready made in your grocery store next to the sweetened condensed milk.

Top this easy fudge with candied fruit and salted nuts or mix them into the batter. You can even pour this over Rice Krispies for a little extra crunch. I like to leave some plain for the fudge purist in me.
