Salted Caramel Pretzel Fudge-this decadent fudge is made in the microwave and only takes a few minutes to make, but no one will ever know because it is so amazing!
Every holiday season I go cookie crazy so I don’t usually have time for other treats. Well, this year I decided I was going to make fudge and I am SO glad I did because this Salted Caramel Pretzel Fudge is life changing. It might be my favorite treat this holiday season and that is saying a lot because you all know how much I LOVE cookies. And guess what? This fudge only takes minutes to make and it is made in the microwave! A HUGE bonus for the busy holiday season.
I love a good sweet and salty combo so I thought it would be fun to make a sweet and salty fudge. I combined chocolate, salted caramel, pretzels, and sea salt in one pan and created the most amazing fudge.
Candy can be tricky and during the holidays I don’t have time to mess with candy thermometers and finicky recipes so I made this recipe foolproof. You make it in the microwave and it only takes minutes to put together. You do have to chill it, but that is the easy part. You can bake other treats, wrap presents, decorate the tree, or watch a holiday movie while it is chilling. This is EASY peasy fudge. Stress free fudge. The BEST fudge.
The chocolate fudge has chopped up pretzel pieces and a layer of salted caramel in the middle. I put whole pretzels and a sprinkling of sea salt on top!
When the fudge is done chilling, I cut the fudge into pieces with a sharp knife. Every piece gets a whole pretzel on top. The fudge is so pretty and looks like a million bucks! The oozing salted caramel in the center is the BIG money. Everyone will think you bought this fudge or are a candy maker extraordinaire. You don’t have to tell them how easy the fudge is to make, that can be our little secret:)
If you are looking for a holiday treat to WOW all of your friends and family this year, make this Salted Caramel Pretzel Fudge. It is all kinds of awesome! Oh, and it can be made in advance. You can keep it chilling in the fridge for up to two weeks. So make it now and serve or gift later! It is the PERFECT fudge for so many reasons. Try it and you will see what I am talking about. The sweet and salty combo wins again! Enjoy!
