I think I’ve mentioned before that I worked at the cute
Cox Honeyland & Gifts all through college – and their AH-MAZING fudge was definitely the main reason for that freshman 15! 😉 They had a salted nut roll fudge that was my FAVORITE (and I recommended to anyone who came in!). It’s a nice change from the standard chocolate fudge – and oh so tasty! I recreated a homemade version with our microwave caramels in the center and it turned out incredibly delicious.
Salted Nut Roll Fudge
2 hr, 30 Prep Time 10 minCook Time
2 hr, 40 Total Time
2 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 cup butter 2/3 cup evaporated milk 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme 8 ounces vanilla almond bark 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup corn syrup 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk 1 1/2 cups peanuts
Line a 9x13 inch pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, butter, and 2/3 cup evaporated milk. Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, be sure to stir occasionally to prevent burning. Bring to a boil and stir occasionally for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in almond bark and marshmallow creme until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract until well combined. Pour half the fudge mixture into the bottom of prepared pan.
Combine all the caramel center ingredients (except the peanuts) in a microwave safe bowl until smooth. Cook for 6 minutes in your microwave, removing and stirring every two minutes. Pour over the fudge mixture, then spread peanuts over the top and lightly press them into the caramel mixture. Pour the second half of the fudge mixture over top, and sprinkle with any remaining peanuts. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or until fudge is set. Cut into squares and serve.
