Delicious Easy to make fudge to impress your friends and family, great as a homemade gift!
Any of the Sugar and Crumbs icing sugar flavours can be used.
You must stick closely to the recipe to avoid over or under cooking the fudge.
- Prep Time : 5 minutes
- Cook Time : 20 minutes
- Yield : 700g
1 - Melt the Butter in a heavy based saucepan until fully dissolved.
2 - Keeping on the hob add the Condensed Milk and mix well with a whisk until combined.
3 - Add the Icing Sugar, about 1/3 of the bag at a time until the sugar dissolves, you must mix all the time for the heat to be evenly spread though the mixture.
4 - Mix for approximately 15-20 mins continuously, if you stop the sugar will burn. It should start to bubble, its ready when the mixture becomes thicker and is harder to stir, if you have a sugar thermometer when it reaches 112-115c, another way to test is to drop a little into a jug of ice-cold water. A soft ball of fudge should form if its ready. ** Top tip ** the fudge will be extremely hot so do not be tempted to have a taste till its made and cooled!
(approx 112c- 115C for soft fudge and 118C for Tablet fudge) If you don't have a thermometer then its ready to pour out once the mixture starts to come away from the sides for the soft fudge, for tablet fudge push a little further, the mixture will be more caramel coloured and will bubble quite high (please note there is only 3 minutes cooking time between these two types of fudge)
5 - Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 2-3 minutes, a skin should form on the top of the fudge, give it one finally whisk.
6 - Place on some baking paper in a dish or tin, leave to cool for 10 minutes then cut up into desired pieces.
