This simple recipe is easy to make and you don’t need to buy a thermometer to make it. Just use a double boiler and melt the chocolate and can of dulce de leche together to create your fudge.

You just need to make sure that your bowl is neither too big nor too small so fit snuggly on top of the pan and that the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl either.

How to Store your Homemade Fudge
