 Dulce de Leche Fudge is a fast and easy microwave fudge recipe with big flavor and a short ingredient list. This recipe may be basic, but the taste is not! It's and rich and creamy fudge, with a deep, caramelized taste from the dulce de leche. You can either buy dulce de leche at the store ​or make your own with this easy Dulce de Leche recipe. You'll want your dulce de leche to have a texture similar to sweetened condensed milk, meaning it is a thick, slow-flowing liquid.
