This decadent fudge is quite delish. It would make a fabulous teacher gift or something sweet for your favorite mailman. I love the sprinkle of sea salt on the top. It cuts through the sweetness of the dulche de leche layer beautifully. This lasted all of two days in my house. the boys were quite happy with this recipe.
