Potato chip and caramel fudge recipe

This potato chip and caramel fudge has a creamy layer of chocolate fudge, covered in gooey jersey caramels and topped with crunchy salty chips and a sprinkle of sea salt for contrast. It's delicious and so easy to make.

Serving Size:

36 pieces

Category:

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups (570g) milk chocolate melts
  • 1 x 395g tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 x 500g pkt jersey caramels
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 3 cups crinkle-cut salted potato chips
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes

Method:

Step 1. Line a 20cm x 20cm cake tin with baking paper and set aside. In a saucepan, over low heat, melt the chocolate and condensed milk together, stirring constantly. Remove from heat once chocolate is completely melted. Pour mixture into cake tin.

Step 2. In a heatproof bowl, add the caramels and 2 tbsp water. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, then remove from microwave and stir well until liquified. Add more water if the caramels are still solid.

Step 3. Pour the caramel over the fudge layer, top with crushed potato chips and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Step 4. Using a flat-bladed knife, gently scoop some of the chocolate to the top of the fudge so the layers are slightly combined. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares and serve.
