Sea Salt Chocolate Fudge Caramel Candy

PrintLast week Joey and I received this tweet from a new company located in Salem Massachusetts, about their new  sea salt product line. This Recipe had already been swirling in my head after a friend of my mother’s recently shared with her a box of Caramel Sea Salt Fudge. My mother simply can not stop talking about how delicious this fudge tastes, and keeps nagging me to make It for the holidays. I finally sampled a piece and she was right! The wheels in my head began to swirl and I added it to my running list of recipes to create for my family and friends this year. A few days latter my brother Joey and I receive this tweet “AtlanticSaltworks@AtlanticSalt @SistaFelicia we are excited for everyone, incl. you and @Joey_C to try it! Will be on its way to your table via USPS this week…enjoy!.” I couldn’t wait for their product sample to arrive and I knew exactly what I was going to make first with their sea salt sample.

salt35When the samples arrived, I went straight to my kitchen to create my own version  incorporating my family’s love for sea salt caramels and chocolate fudge together to create “The Ultimate”  of all confections”. The results far surpassed my expectations and turned out to be a five star recipe perfect for the upcoming holiday season. If your looking for a new holiday candy to gift or bring to a cookie swap, this is the recipe for you.

  1. OH …. The candy gods are with you … Candy thermometer ~ where is that thing ~ finding that might be the worst part of your great recipe! Ummm, sounds great. Signed up for the atlanticsaltworks newsletter ~

  2. OMG, This looks so yummy.. I bet it smells delicious

  3. So thrilled you guys are using and love our salt. Thanks so much!!!! – Heather and Alison

    I have questions.. First, what margarine rather than butter in the fudge? Second, do you use oil based chocolate flavoring? Third, is the texture of the finished product like fudge or more chewy like caramel? And fourth.. Why the heck isn’t The Cave or Common Crow carrying Atlantic Salt Works sea salt?

    • Brenda, You can use butter, I have used both and don’t really notice an big difference. I did not use oil base flavoring in this recipe, the final product texture is the same of a soft caramel but with a fudge flavor, and I’m sure both locations would be willing carry Atlantic Saltworks new product line, it is a great product!

      Thank you, Felicia.. This may replace my annual ” never fail fudge ” recipe this Christmas..

    Can’t wait to make these! I have two questions: What kind of chocolate flavoring do you use and how long do you think they stay fresh? I don’t want to make them too far in advance of the holidays and then have them go stale. Thank you for all the great recipes and tips.

    • I used Langdale’s Chocolate Flavoring. They didn’t last long in my house, so I don’t have an exact shelf life to share but I would recommend not making them too far in advance from when your going to serve or gift it, maybe 1-2 days? Caramel has a tendency to crystallize and take on a gritty texture.
