Ultimate Fudge Recipe

Place the ingredients into a large non-stick saucepan and melt over a low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

Step 3 of 6

Ultimate Fudge

Bring to a steady boil for 10-15 minutes, stirring continuously and scraping the base of the pan to prevent it from catching. 

The mixture should reach 113-115°C on a sugar thermometer if you have one.  If you don't you can drop a little mixture into a bowl of ice cold water - if it forms a soft, round ball that doesn't stick to your fingers then it should be ready.

Step 4 of 6

Remove the fudge from the heat and leave to cool for 5 minutes. 

If you want to add other ingredients and flavours - add them before you start beating the fudge. After cooling try mixing in nuts, natural flavourings or chocolate chip for added texture and flavour that will make your fudge utterly delicious.

Step 5 of 6

Beat the mixture until it just looses it's shine and becomes very thick (this should take about 5-10 minutes).  The longer you beat once it starts to thicken then the more crumbly the final fudge will be.  If you like it smooth - beat it only until comes away from the sides of the pan and sticks well to the spoon.

Step 6 of 6

Press into the prepared tin with the back of a spoon and leave to set before cutting into squares.

The fudge will keep for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container at room temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The time is worth it! I must admit the first batch was a flop. Tried it second time round and boiled for longer than the receipe stated. Kept doing the soft ball test until it did form a ball. I added a teaspoon of salted caramel flavouring, a teaspoon of salt and cracked sea salt on the top. I will have to make more as i am sure it will be gone in a flash!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Taste great I made this recently and it actually worked. When “beating it” it wasn’t coming together like the photo so i didn’t think it was going to set, though it did but is crumbly. Overall tastes good but is very sweet

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Method doesn't work I'm really annoyed I wasted my time with this. I followed the instructions to the letter, using a sugar thermometer and beating for ages. In fact I spent longer beating than it said! However it hasn't set and actually tastes quite unpleasant, just like condensed milk. Other people saying this makes great fudge must be using their own knowledge and tricks to get it to set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comes out the same every time! I buy this regularly to make ultimate fudge, i love it, it is so easy to follow the recipe and the result comes out the same every single time. It does take time and patience but the effort is definitely worth it.
