2 Ingredient Caramel Fudge

This caramel fudge is rich and creamy. It is also easier to make than traditional fudge. This fudge needs only two ingredients and takes about five minutes to prepare. The fudge stores well and can be made ahead of time.

I wanted to share one more super easy fudge recipe. This caramel fudge is creamy and a little chewy. You can make it as a regular caramel fudge or a salted caramel fudge.


  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Caramel sauce

Semi-sweet chocolate chips: This recipe can be made with semi-sweet or milk chocolate. I prefer semi-sweet since the caramel is already very sweet. If you make it with milk chocolate, the fudge will be a bit softer.

Caramel sauce: You need to make sure to use a thick caramel sauce for this fudge. The kind that is usually sold in a jar and is mostly solid at room temperature and needs to be warmed up before it can be used. Do not use a caramel sauce that comes in a squeeze jar as that is too runny and the fudge will not set. You can use regular or salted caramel. I like using salted because the fudge is so sweet.

How to Make Caramel Fudge

The chocolate and caramel are added together and then heated in the microwave until the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth, thick mixture. The mixture is then poured into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula to even and smooth the fudge mixture. Then place it into the freezer until set. Once set, bring it back to room temperature before cutting and slicing.

Fudge texture

This fudge is firm on the outside and soft and slightly chewy when you bite in. If you use milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate, it will be a little more soft unless kept chilled in the fridge. The fudge is very rich and sweet which is why I prefer using salted caramel and semi-sweet chocolate.

  • 1/2 cup (118 ml) thick caramel sauce see note
  • 1 1/2 cups (263 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Line an 8 inch x 4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Add caramel sauce and chocolate chips to a large microwave-safe mixing bowl. Heat in 15-30 second intervals, stirring in between with a spatula until chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth and uniform in color. You can also melt the chocolate mixture on the stove using the double boiler method. As the caramel is incorporated into the chocolate, it will cause the mixture to turn very thick.
  • Add mixture to your lined loaf pan. Use your spatula to spread it evenly across and smooth the surface. Place the fudge into the freezer until set. This should only take about 30 minutes. Bring the fudge back to room temperature before cutting and serving. If desired, sprinkle coarse or flaky salt on top of the fudge. Uneaten fudge can be stored in the fridge.


  • You can use salted or regular caramel sauce but it needs to be a thick sauce. You need to use the kind that is sold in a jar and not a squeeze bottle. It needs to be very thick and almost solid at room temperature. It should be the kind that needs to be warmed up before using. I tested this with Smucker's caramel topping and salted caramel topping. 
  • You can also use milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet but the fudge will be much sweeter and will also be a little softer. 
  • The flaky salt on top is completely optional. Since I like the flavor of salted caramel, I thought the flaky salt would be nice decoration and add more salt to the fudge.
  • The nutrition estimate does not include the optional salt on top and is calculated using Smucker's salted caramel topping.

  1. Made the caramel fudge. Super easy. Everyone loved it and couldn’t believe that it only contained two ingredients. Would definitely make again.

  2. Can walnuts be added?
