Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter - salted
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • Caviar from one vanilla bean - or one tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar - sifted (make sure you sift it!)

Instructions

  • Sift your powdered sugar into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper, letting the edges hang over on two opposing sides to make a sling. This makes removing and cutting the fudge a LOT easier once it has set.
  • Melt your butter in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat.
  • Add your brown sugar, vanilla bean caviar (or vanilla extract), and half-and-half and bring the mixture to a boil. Let it boil, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  • Move the pan to a cool burner and stir in the Nutella. I’d recommend spritzing your measuring cup with a little non-stick spray before putting the Nutella in there, which will make it less likely to stick.
  • Once the Nutella is thoroughly mixed in, transfer the contents of the pot into the bowl with the powdered sugar in it. Mix quickly and thoroughly until all of it is combined. It will be pretty thick – if it seems thin, add more powdered sugar.
  • Dump the whole mixture into your baking dish and put it in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Remove the fudge from the baking dish by grabbing the excess parchment paper and lifting.
  • Transfer the fudge to a cutting board and cut it up!

NOTES

Optional toppings (which I didn’t think of until after I made the batch above): chopped hazelnuts, pretzel pieces, white chocolate chips, toasted coconut, or crushed candy canes.
