12 Days of Christmas Day 2 - Easy Turtle Fudge

On the 2nd Day of Christmas my true gave to me, Two Turtle Doves and a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Well, yesterday we had a great Pear Cranberry Baked Oatmeal with Maple Sugared Walnuts recipe for Day 1 of our 12 Days of Christmas.

Today, we are making Turtle Fudge and it's super easy. No boiling and taking temperatures with candy thermometers. This one is super simple and yummy!

Ingredients for fudge:
· 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
· 1 can sweetened condensed milk
· 3 tablespoons butter
· 20 wrapped caramels, unwrapped
· 2 tablespoons milk

Ingredients for topping:

· 10 wrapped caramels, unwrapped
· 1 tablespoon milk
· ¼ cup pecans

1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt together the chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter. Stir often until smooth.
2. Meanwhile melt the caramels and milk in a bowl in the microwave until completely smooth.
3. Line an 8x8-inch square pan with foil or parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. Pour half the chocolate fudge into the pan, smoothing into an even layer. Pour caramel on top of the fudge layer. Add the remaining half of fudge and smooth.
4. For the topping, melt the caramels with the milk until smooth. Drizzle the fudge with caramel and sprinkle with pecans. Refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours, then cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.
