Happy Sunday! I’m not sure why carrots became an Easter flavor . . . I mean, I guess I get it. Easter . . . . rabbits . . . carrots? Is that the logic path we are following? Either way, with so many carrot cake lovers in my life, I’m glad I have a few recipes that fill that carroty void.

Last week I published my homemade Carrot Cake recipe and now today I have for you those great flavors in fudge form!

P.S. Some of my most popular recipes are fudge! Check out photos of them below the recipe!

HOW TO MAKE FUDGE WITH SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK

When you make fudge with white chocolate chips and sweetened condensed milk, you have to be really careful what you add because liquidy ingredients can really mess with the consistency of the fudge. Your white chocolate can seize and you don’t get the smooth consistency you are looking for.

Generally speaking, you want three cups of chocolate chips to one 14 ounce container of sweetened condensed milk. From there you can add extract, different seasonings and flavors to make different fudge.

THE SECRET CARROT INGREDIENT

In this Carrot Cake Fudge recipe, I wanted to make it carrot flavored without adding actual chunks of carrot as you do in the cake version. So, I had the genius idea to add carrot baby food! From there, I upped the amount of white chocolate so as to not mess too much with the consistency. It worked like a charm!

Please note that when you melt the white chocolate and the sweetened condensed milk together it will have a very chunky consistency. That’s because it is more chocolate than the regular ratio (spoken about above) likes. But once you add that purred carrot, you will end up with a nice smooth consistency.

There is a video below so you can see this process in action!

PERFECTING THAT CARROT CAKE TASTE

After I figured out that a little carrot baby food mixed with the right amount of sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips works perfectly, I knew I needed a few more ingredients to get the taste just right. The last two ingredients were a little nutmeg and cinnamon.

The result was a fudge that doesn’t taste super carroty, but does taste a whole lot like your favorite carrot cake.

    Does white chocolate chips melt the same as chocolate chips? Since I seen you used baby food I was thinking of what other baby food you could use and then wondered about the chocolate chips. Going to try this recipe and see who likes it at church.

    • Lisa Longley says

      It doesn’t. White chocolate morsels are a lot more picky about what you do to it than chocolate. I used Gerber brand and it worked perfectly, but any more than the amount listed and it might make the chocolate seize up. It’s also key that you fully incorporate the sweetened condensed milk before adding the baby food.

    I added cloves and all spice. It seemed to enhance the carrot flavour 😊

      What a great idea Caitlin!
