Caramel Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle Fudge, aka, the best fudge, ever with a tongue twister of a name. And that's saying something coming from me since I don't like chocolate. Yes, I don't like chocolate. Before you say "WTF, how?!" just remember how much more chocolate you can eat when you're around me. But seriously, I really don't think you can go wrong when you combine chocolate, dulce de leche and marshmallow cream. I know, right, yum! And you don't use the whole jar of marshmallow cream, even if you double-batch, so you know, another plus.
I made this last year as my gift for my bosses and co-workers, as well as many other occasions. It was so simple and easy to make, but seems like you put way more effort into it. Shhh...don't tell them! It was funny, I loaded up cellophane bags with a bunch of pieces and handed them out. The very next day, my boss came up to me and was like, "OMG, can you make more of that fudge? I ate it all last night!" I'm telling you, its the best gift, ever, too.
CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CHIP BROWNIE BRITTLE FUDGE
FOR THE CRUST
2 bags Chocolate Chip Brownie Brittle
6 tablespoons butter, melted
FOR THE FUDGE
2 cups white chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup Dulce de Leche - caramel
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips + 2 tablespoons for garnish
- Before crushing up the Brownie Brittle, reserve 36 small Brownie Brittle pieces for garnish. These can be really tiny pieces. Crush the rest of the 2 bags of brittle. The consistency should be pretty crushed, otherwise large pieces won't fuse together making the crust too crumbly in the end. Combine the butter and crumbs until combined. Press firmly into a foil lined 8x8 pan. Refrigerate.
- Place the 2 Tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted. Add the white chocolate chips until melted and creamy. Stir in the Dulce de Leche and marshmallow cream until it all melts and becomes creamy. Let cool.
- Stir in the chocolate chips quickly. Do not stir too much or they will melt completely. If your mixture isn't cool enough or you're just a little impatient like me, that's fine. The mini chocolate chips will just look more marbled. No big if they melt. Pour over the Brownie Brittle crust. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips. Let set 10 minutes.
- Press the reserved Brownie Brittle chunks into the top of the fudge in a 6x6 grid. Let the fudge set completely before cutting into 36 squares. Store in a sealed container on the counter.
Adapted from this recipe but added in a few helpful tips since I've made this fudge so many times.
I hope I have successfully made you hungry. I'm sitting here thinking about what I can eat because now I'm hungry. And your welcome, your co-workers/family/friends will love you once you make this not that they don't already.
