You can use your favorite flavored coffee creamer if you like! I am partial to pumpkin spice coffee creamer in the fall and gingerbread creamer in the winter.

You also don't have to use the single-serve creamer cups — you can use the kind from the grocery store that comes in a liter container.

How to Make Caramel Macchiato Coffee Creamer Fudge

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to make this easy fudge with coffee creamer:

First, measure and set out all of your ingredients before you begin.

Then, line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper.

On the stove, melt butter. Then add in the sugar, evaporated milk and creamer. Whisk to combine.

Bring the mixture to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.

Once the liquid is boiling, set timer for 6 minutes and let it continue boiling. Stir every 30 seconds.

Then remove from heat. Add in the marshmallows and vanilla extract.

Stir to melt marshmallows. (I like to switch to a flexible silicone spatula at this point in the recipe.)

Add in your white chocolate chips and stir until melted.

Pour mixture into baking pan and let cool on the counter. Meanwhile, make your caramel topping.

Measure out your ingredients for the caramel. Add sugar to a small saucepan and turn heat to medium.

Using a silicone spatula, stir around the sugar constantly. Clumps will begin to form and then sugar will begin to melt down to be a smooth, clear liquid. You'll see the sugar pulling away from the pan as you stir.

Allow the sugar to melt for just a few minutes, then remove from heat and add in butter. Whisk until completely combined and the sugar is starting to have an amber color to it. Then add in heavy cream and whisk completely.

Return to heat and let caramel bubble and smooth out for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over the cooled fudge.

Let the fudge and caramel cool completely before cutting into it and serving. You should be able to make about 32 pieces, but you may get more or less depending on how big you cut the pieces and how big your pan is.

Can you make homemade fudge with coffee creamer?

Yes! I found it worked best to do ¾ cup evaporated milk with ¼ cup creamer. You can use any coffee creamer that you like.
