Potato chips, pretzels and salted nuts are all classic bar snacks, and we’ve married them in this rich fudge—with a subtle kick to balance out the savory notes.
YIELD 10 bars
ZEST FACTOR Mild
PREP TIME 2–4 hours
COOK TIME 10 minutes
3½ cups dark chocolate chips
1 (14-ounce) can condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
½ cup potato chips, crushed
½ cup pretzels, crushed
½ cup cashews, chopped
½ cup white chocolate chips
1. In a saucepot over medium, combine the chocolate and condensed milk. Stir in the vanilla and chipotle and continue stirring until the chocolate melts and takes on a glossy sheen, about 5–10 minutes. When the mixture starts to ball up away from the sides of the pot, remove from the heat.
2. Pour the fudge into a parchment-lined 9-x-9-inch pan. Top with the crushed and chopped ingredients and set aside.
3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth. Drizzle over the fudge.
4. Cover and place in the fridge for 2–4 hours before slicing and serving at room temperature.
