Chocolate drizzles add a fun and tasty flair to this Caramel Coffee Fudge. The caramel and coffee layers are easy to make and taste incredible together.
Everyone loves a classic fudge like this fantasy fudge or the super easy frosting fudge. Lately, every time I make fudge it ends up having 2-3 layers in it. This fudge was started out as just caramel, but then I started thinking of all the ways I could make it more interesting.
Why You Will Love This Fudge
The easy caramel fudge recipe has two layers that stand out. Adding coffee fudge to it makes it taste like a caramel latte.
The best part about this fudge works is that it is fool proof. There is no need for candy thermometers or endless stirring over a hot stove. All you do is melt it all together and let it chill.
A drizzle of chocolate makes it look like a festive latte.
You will only need a few basic ingredients to make a caramel coffee fudge. The end layers always look so pretty.
- White Chocolate Chips - You will need two bags of white chips to make both fudge layers.
- Butter - I like to use a little bit of butter to help melt the white chocolate down smoothly.
- Dulce De Leche - Gives the fudge a sweet caramel flavor. You can find this in most baking aisles of stores.
- Sweetened Condensed Milk - Stir this into the melted chips to create a creamy sweet layer.
- Instant Coffee - Dissolve this in a little bit of water and add it to the fudge recipe for a great coffee flavor.
- Marshmallow Cream - Also know as fluff, this will give the fudge a fluffy and light texture.
- Chocolate Melting Wafers - We love using Ghirardelli chocolate for dipping and decorating treats. It melts smoothly and tastes so good.
How to make Caramel Coffee Fudge
This layered coffee fudge recipe is easy to put together. Follow the steps below and let it set.
For the Caramel Layer
- Melt the butter and white chips in a saucepan over low heat. Stir until melted and creamy.
- Stir in the dulce de Leche and marshmallow cream and stir again.
- Pour into a foil lined pan and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For the Coffee Layer

- Refrigerate the pan of fudge for a few hours or overnight before cutting into squares.
Counter: Keep the coffee fudge at room temperature in an air tight container for 3-4 days.
Refrigerator: Place the fudge in an air tight container in the fridge for 6-7 days.
Freezer: Wrap the entire block of fudge in plastic wrap and foil; place in a freezer safe bag or container for 1-2 months. Remove and thaw overnight in the fridge.
Cut the fudge into squares right before you serve it. Freezing it whole vs squares keeps the fudge from drying out.
Tips and Tricks
- Line your pan with foil. This will make it easier to remove the fudge later and cut it into nice neat squares.
- Heat the ingredients over low heat to avoid scorching and ruining your chocolate.
- To cut this fudge in clean neat squares, run a sharp knife under hot water, then dry it off. Do this between each cut.
- Drizzle the fudge squares with melted chocolate to give it a little pizzaz.
Yes, this is a great treat to make 1-2 days ahead of time because it needs time to set up completely before you cut it.
Yes, fudge can be frozen. Make sure to wrap it tightly in a few layers of saran wrap and foil, then in a freezer safe bag before putting it in the freezer.
