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 loses 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 4 out of 5 by from Delicious fudge! I made this fudge to give as Christmas gifts and was very pleased with the end result. However, it took far longer than 10-15 minutes to reach the required temperature on the sugar thermometer. 10-15 mins is a definite underestimate, allow at least double if not 3 times that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I am so happy I tried this recipe, as I have been trying to make fudge unsuccessfully for about 6 months now, and this is the first one that worked! It was wonderfully crumbly and even better than shop bought.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 1st attempt was spot on, second went like crumbs?? I have no idea what happened, followed the recipe exactly but it just ended up as a crumbly mess. Added some condensed milk to stick it all together and tasted okay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too soft The flavour of this fudge is beautiful, but I have tried it countless times and I cannot get it to set firm! It always remains squishy. I also found the demerara sugar wouldn't melt so I substituted it for light brown sugar. I always cook up to 115 degrees, then let it sit for 5 mins, then beat for at least 15/20 mins. What am I doing wrong? Please help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing recipe Made this a few times now and absolutely love it. I want to make a chocolate version, does anybody have tips on how to turn this one chocolate flavour? I have seen the easy chocolate fudge recipe but it doesn't look like it would be as tasty as this one! Thank you

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked well but tasted a bit buttery Followed the instructions and it worked out perfect but taste wise it’s a little buttery. Could do with some vanilla adding to it.
