Salted Caramel Fudge is a truly decadent treat. The caramel and salt are a beautiful pairing.
Tis the season for all things salted caramel. Am I right? I’m pretty sure if you were to go on Pinterest right now, you would find dozens of salted caramel desserts in minutes of scrolling the home page. I think I read somewhere that salted caramel is “trending” right now, for what it’s worth.
And with good reason. The sweetness of caramel paired with the bit of salt is a match made in heaven. I took it a step further by adding in some espresso powder. If you follow me on instagram, you’ll know I have quite the coffee addiction. I also am addicted to coffee mugs, as my family would attest (or detest depending on who is putting them away in the overflowing cabinet)!
My addiction gets worse as the weather changes and the cool crisp air of fall is replaced with the windy chill of winter (why yes, I am from Chicago). I crave hot coffee all day and night.
But this fudge makes everything a little better. It makes the days warmer and gives me something to look forward to as I’m snuggled in blankets on my couch!
This salted caramel fudge with mocha would also be a great gift to teachers for the holidays. You can make a great gift by pairing it with salted caramel mocha truffles. Ummm, yeah, I told you I’m a bit of an addict.
And don’t even ask me to choose a favorite. That’s like asking me to choose my favorite child.
They each offer a unique taste in the flavor profile. Admittedly, the fudge is a little easier from a time standpoint. But the truffles will remind you of those high-end candies you get from chocolate stores. No doubt you have to try them both!
What’s your favorite flavor this time of year? It's a little summery, but I also love coconut truffles!
