White Chocolate & Dulce de Leche Fudge

What a wonderful flavor combination!!!  Two of my favorite things- dulce de leche and white chocolate combined into a delicious fudge.  When I saw this I knew I had to make it!  You just melt white chocolate, and add some dulce de leche, milk, and nuts, if desired.  I used evaporated milk, because it seems like most fudge recipes call for that as opposed to just regular milk.  I also used store-bought dulce de leche for this recipe. 
This fudge was super soft.  To cut it, I had to freeze it first.  Actually, I'm storing cut pieces in the freezer, layers separated by wax paper.  When I want a piece, I go eat one right out of the freezer- they are still soft enough to enjoy, even frozen.  :)  (And they'll stay fresh for a long time, too!)
White Chocolate & Dulce de Leche Fudge

500 grams white chocolate
150 grams (1/2 cup) dulce de leche
80 mL (1/3 cup) milk or evaporated milk
100 g (1 cup) chopped pecans or walnuts

1. Over a double boiler (or a metal bowl placed over a pot of simmering water) melt the white chocolate, stirring constantly making sure not to burn.

2. When melted, add the dulce de leche and the milk, stir with a wisk trying your best to minimize the formation of air bubbles.

3. Remove from double boiler and fold in the pecans or walnuts.

4. Pour out onto a parchment lined 9x9 or similar sized baking dish.

5. Allow to cool overnight in refridgerator (or for 2 hours in the freezer).  After it is solid, remove to a cutting board and cut into squares.  Store in fridge or freezer.
