1 cup milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed

1/4 cup caramel sauce, plus more for drizzling

Prepare an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper, leaving overhangs for easy fudge removal.

In the slow cooker, mix sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and butter.

Cook on low for 1-2 hours, stirring every 15-20 minutes, until smooth.

Stir in caramel sauce and vanilla extract until well combined.

Pour the mixture into the baking dish, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Drizzle additional caramel sauce and sprinkle with sea salt.

Cool at room temperature, then refrigerate to set for at least 4 hours.

Lift the fudge out using the parchment paper, cut into squares, and enjoy!
