Reviews for Caramel Peanut Fudge
I admit I was skeptical while making this (the filling layer didn't look very appetizing) but it turned out sooooo good!!! I gave these away as treats at work and people raved. And my boyfriend gobbled down the rest in like two days. Yum.
Takes some work but *SO* worth it. The directions were easy to follow and it came out great! I made these as Christmas gifts last year. The only problem I had was that once the fudge was at out of the fridge and room temp again, the caramel would cause the layers to shift once cut. No biggie though. So delicious!!
This was just ok. I will not make it again. I would rather have traditional fudge.
Pretty easy if you just take the time to let every layer set up. I added sea salt on top of the caramel layer. HUGE hit at my office this year!
These are yummy, but I too think that I did something wrong! It was very difficult to get the squares out of the pan and when left at room temperature the caramel layer "melted" and I was left with a blob of caramel with a chocolate layer on the bottom and top. Trying to remove the squares when they were quite cool seem to work best, but did not solve my "melting" problem. I wish they had worked :(
This is a good tasting fudge. Just make sure you have lots of time to spend making it!
It's awesome. My daughter & I made it on a Friday night. A lot of fun, too.
Excellent! To avoid caramel melting after cut when at room temp, consider omitting cream from caramel layer. Line pan with parchment. Score top chocolate layer when soft set. Then remove from pan and cut on board when fully chilled.
WOW!! This recipe required a lot of work (especialy unwrapping all of those caramels), but in the end it was totally worth it! The result is delicious, not exactly like a Snickers, but just as good. Very rich though, so if you don't like things too sweet, this is not for you. I sent it with my husband to work, and he said the guys were oohing and aahing like a bunch over women about it! Will definitely make it again, but when I have plenty of time to do so!!
I made this fudge of a work party, everyone could not stop eating it. They said it was the best fudge that they have ever tasted. So many people wanted the recipe
Made exactly as written, allowed time between each layer to cool and set in the fridge. Did not have any problems with my layers, just right as is. Extremely rich and decadent!
I loved how this tasted. My only complaint is that I added milk to the top layer and it never hardened. Next time I'll skip the milk and just go with the list of ingredients.
This tasted very good. And yes it does taste just like a snickers bar. I did like that taste, but I don't think I'll make it again. I think it would be easier to just cut up a snickers bar.. that's how close this tasted to me. It's nice to know I can recreate a Snickers bar if I ever want to again.
Wow it tastes just like a Snickers bar!!!! Excellent fudge!!!!
Fantastic! Makes a tonne so I was able to cut it into several pieces and wrap them in fancy Christmas bags to give to friends. I had trouble getting it out of the pan and will use baking paper next time.
This is time consuming but definitely worth it. Good for a relaxed weekend day when you are putzing around the house. I agree with a previous poster in that the butterscotch flavor tends to dominate. I also found it hard to take out of the pan. Let it sit on the counter for a few minutes before attempting to cut it, and be careful to not to hack up the bottom of your pan like I did. On the Filling Layer, measure out the ingredients before starting and WORK FAST after you take it off the heat. It hardens quickly. Overall, delicious recipe, and I will be making it again.
I made this and it was the hit of the town!!! Everyone loved it. I did not put the nuts in it though
Even though it was not fudge consistency it was great tasting. I don't know what I did wrong but the middle ooozed. I had to put it in the freezer to give it as Snicker's Candy.
Wow! This is a delicious recipe. It does taste very much like Snickers bars, but better and richer. I delivered this fudge to neighbors for Christmas and got three phone calls the next day raving about it.
The only thing I tweaked was that I used semi-sweet chocolate bits rather than milk chocolate and left out the peanuts. I made this for my daughter who loves caramel and peanutbutter. It took a long time to make just because of all the layers and waiting for each layer to "set". Created a ton of dishes/pots to clean. Not sure I want to make it again.
Everyone loved these. They were a big hit at the church fellowship hour
