Not many foods say Savannah like Praline. One taste of this fudge will transport you to River Street, and trust me-that’s definitely somewhere you wanna be 🙂
Savannah Praline Fudge
(adapted from somethingswanky.com)
- 1 14oz Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 3 1/4 Cups of White Chocolate
- 1 Heaping Cup of Caramel Pieces
- Salt (optional)
- 2 Tablespoons of Water
- 1/2 Cup of Pecan Halves (or more, or less, totally according to how much you dig pecans)
First off, take a 9×9 pan and line it with parchment paper. Then go ahead and toss your sweetened condensed milk and white chocolate into a saucepan. Heat it on medium-low until it is all melty and smooth and luscious. Pour half of the white chocolate mixture into your pan. Meanwhile, put your caramel pieces and water into a microwave safe bowl and microwave it for 1-1.5 minutes. Take it out and stir it until its smooth and creamy.
Pour it evenly over your white chocolate. Now, get out that salt (I recommend sea salt for this. The bigger the crystals the bigger the taste), and lightly sprinkle a pinch or two over the caramel. This step is totally optional, but I’m a big fan of salt and put it on anything and everything 🙂
Now comes the star of the show. The pecans. Sprinkle the pecans evenly over the caramel. You can use as little or much as you like, but 1/2 cup is a good starting point.
Finally, pour the rest of your white chocolate mixture over your pecans. Smooth it out a little, and let it sit for a few hours to fully harden up.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself speaking with that slow Southern drawl after you sample these
See you next week!
