Our first fudge recipe for this years Christmas Baking Frenzy is here, Chocolate Caramel Turtle Fudge!! The thing I love about a good fudge recipe is that it is so easy to make and even better to eat, and this one is no exception. The decadent chocolate is wrapped around chunks of pecans and oozing caramel…I mean what more could you want in a fudge?
If you are looking for a delicious chocolaty fudge to add to your cookie trays this is definitely the one, it only takes 5 minutes to prepare and uses just a few simple ingredients (you don’t even need to make the caramel sauce for this one…yes!!!). So go ahead friends, I give you permission to make a double batch and keep one for yourself, after all it is the season for giving (and that includes to ourselves).
