Salted Motown Fudge

Salt is a key ingredient for many dessert recipes, but that’s even more the case for chocolate-based treats. Salt brings out the best in chocolate and this gluten-free fudge takes that to the next level!

Prep time: 20 minutes |  Cook time: 2 hours | Serves: 28


  • 1 cup (250ml) evaporated milk
  • ½ cup (105g) butter
  • 1 cup (200g) white sugar
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 12 ounces (340g) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons salt (consider ‘fleur de sel’, or hand-harvested sea salt)


  1. Combine your evaporated milk, butter, sugars and a pinch of salt in a heavy saucepan.
  2. Place the saucepan over a medium flame and heat it until your sugars have dissolved into a syrup.
  3. Continue cooking your syrup for 7 minutes until it begins to look slightly golden brown.
  4. Remove the mixture from the heat and quickly stir in your chocolate. Mix it with a spatula until it is well melted, then stir in your vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the mixture into a square pan lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap, and sprinkle with fleur de sel (hand-harvested sea salt).
  6. Refrigerate your fudge for 2 hours before cutting it into small squares with a warm knife.
  7. Store your fudge in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
