Dulce Fudge

Dulce Fudge Recipe

There’s fudge... and then there’s caramel fudge! This new recipe was created when we introduced Eagle Brand Dulce de Leche Caramel Flavoured Sauce in 2013. This incredibly simple fudge has become a big hit with fudge fans!

Prep Time: 15 minutes plus chilling time
Freezing: excellent
Serving: 64 1” (2.5cm) pieces


1 can (300mL) Eagle Brand® Dulce de Leche Caramel Flavoured Sauce
2 cups (500mL) packed brown sugar
1 cup (250mL) butter


1.  Line an 8” x 8” (2L) baking dish with parchment paper overlapping 2 sides for easy removal.
2.  Place ingredients in a 2 quart (2.2L) microwave safe mixing bowl, and microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Let cool slightly (5 minutes).
3.  Beat with electric mixer for 3 minutes, until smooth.
4.  Spread mixture into prepared pan.  Chill to set (2 hours) and cut into squares.


Stir in ½ cup (125mL) chopped nuts into fudge mixture.
Swirl in ¼ cup (50mL) melted chocolate into fudge mixture.
If you have a powerful microwave reduce power to 80% and microwave to 6-8 minutes until bubbling.

Can I use icing sugar instead of the brown sugar?

I just love this recipe! Not only a fantastic flavour but so simple to make! My only suggestion to those who had problems is to have your bowl mostly covered with a microwave safe "lid" of some kind.

Mine didn't set at first either, but after it was refrigerated for several hours I simply stuck it back in the microwave, melted it and let it boil more. The instructions that say "if you have a powerful microwave reduce power to 80% and microwave to 6-8 minutes until bubbling" threw me off because as soon as it boiled I thought it was supposed to be done. Not so. Make sure to boil for a bit - to the soft ball stage - for the fudge texture.

mine did not set either - and such little ingrediants and instructions I am surprised to why it did not

This would not set for me - not sure why as I followed directions. Now more like a stiff caramel sauce.

The double boiler works great! Thanks

Use a double boiler or pyrex bowl with the bottom of the bowl suspended over a saucepan of boiling water. Pyrex measuring cups, hooked over the edge of a sauepan, with their botttoms in boiling water also work.

How do I melt the ingredients if I don't use a microwave?
