I was recently invited on a Princess cruise for 7 days through the Mexican Riviera – to Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas – aboard the Ruby Princess.
It was a fantastically relaxing and indulgent vacation – and exactly what I needed to Come Back New! (No wonder that is the Princess slogan – I did feel so invigorated and rejuvenated after our trip!)
While in Mazatlan, a couple friends who I explored the town with and I found an adorable shop selling pastries, treats, brownies, and mini cakes.
One of the cakes I sampled was a delicious dulce de leche cake, full of rich sweet caramel flavors that I couldn’t get enough of- and inspired me to make this fudge that is so crazy good, you will be making it all the time!
While it might look like caramel, dulce de leche is an entirely different (and equally heavenly) substance – a cooked, sweetened condensed milk.
It is a staple of Hispanic desserts – and a luxurious addition to this simple and incredibly easy cake batter fudge recipe.
This fudge is so indulgent, you won’t be able to get enough!

This recipe uses canned dulce de leche (found in the hispanic section of many grocery stores) – it looks like caramel sauce, but it is an entirely different delicious indulgence. You could use caramel sauce, but you might miss some of the decadent smoky sweet flavor of dulce de leche!
