Dylan's Famous White Chocolate Caramel Pecan Fudge

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup room temperature caramel sauce

Directions:

  1. Combine chocolate chips, milk, and butter in a medium sized metal bowl over a large pot of water, and heat on stovetop until slightly liquified.
  2. Stir to combine and heat ingredients. There will be a few pieces of unmelted chocolate in the bowl.
  3. Stir until mostly smooth with just a few flecks of unmelted chocolate.
  4. Add the vanilla extract and pecans - stir to combine.
  5. Scoop onto a parchment-lined tray.
  6. Spread with a spatula to approximately 1-inch thickness.
  7. Drizzle with caramel sauce. Lightly swirl the caramel into the fudge with a knife or the end of the spatula.
  8. Place pecan halves evenly over top - so that each cut square will have a pecan half on top.
  9. Chill until ready to serve.
  10. Slice into 1-inch squares.
  11. Store in an airtight container - in the refrigerator - and enjoy up to a week!

Dylan lives in Americus, GA and enjoys cooking, baking, fishing, playing soccer, & spending time with his family. He likes using fresh ingredients from local farmers that really bring out great flavors in his recipes. He may only be 10 years old, but most folks think he is beyond his years in the kitchen. One day soon, Dylan would like to be a contestant on MasterChef Junior!

When Dylan’s mom entered this recipe into a food competition, they used 2021 Georgia Grown pecans from Horne Pecan Company. Dylan’s family supports local farmers and agriculture and they enjoy using locally sourced ingredients to provide amazing meals and desserts. Dylan believes supporting Georgia Grown businesses like Horne Farms not only supports small, family-owned establishments but also brings Georgians closer together, promotes responsibility and sustainability of our environment … & best of all, you can taste the difference!
