Easy Fudge

By April 5, 2018

This is a little bag of fudge we made for one of our fudge lovers Phil :-)

It takes a little effort so stick closely to the steps if you’re new to making fudge – once mastered the results are out of this world

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10-15 minutes
  • Yield : 18


1. Place the butter into a large non-stick saucepan and melt over a low heat, stirring until melted, add in the condensed milk and whisk in well, gradually add in the icing sugar and whisk non stop.

2. Bring to the boil , whisking continuously and scraping the base of the pan. Take care while the mixture boils and during whisking as the fudge will be VERY hot! To test its ready drop a little of the mixture into a jug of ice-cold water. A soft ball of fudge should form. Or check with a sugar thermometer if you have one (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)

3. Remove from the heat and beat the fudge until very thick and starting to set.

4. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to cool before cutting into squares.

Additions if you wish add chopped nuts or fruits.

This fudge is delicious with any of the flavoured icing sugars at Sugar and Crumbs, we've tried them all. Remember they will turn out an off white colour unless you colour them when using the white icing sugars. They are a deep dark chocolate when using the flavoured chocolate icing sugars.

    How do you get it to have a less sugary gritty texture? I tried yours at cake bake and mine seems a little less smooth. Delicious though XX

      Hi Claire,
      You need to stir constantly if you want to hace a smooth texture. Keep whisking until reach the right temperature. Take out of the heat and whisk for a few seconds. xx
