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 1 out of 5 by from This recipe makes toffee not fudge I have now tried this 3 times with a thermometer and beating until I am exhausted and still it coimes out as toffee that I cannot serve to my aged aunts on account of their fragile teeth. I guess if you are in a laborotory with precision temperature control etc and a mechanical beater then it might become fudge but honestly it really is a toffee recipe

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FOR ALL THOSE STRUGGLING After 1 success by flop, and 4 fails where I kept either ending up with caramel or an oily mess, along with blisters from the wooden spoon, I started looking at different recipes and methods to understand how each step works. They u should stir fudge, but thats not always the case. Now this recipe has a way too high liquid ratio. Long story short, this is what u do: First, melt 125g butter. Once butter is melted, add 1,5 cups of bown sugar, along with 1 (385ml) can of condensed milk, and (optional) 2 tablespoons syrup. Stir that together for 2 mins. Remember, keep the temp on low-medium, not low, not high. Add 50ml milk (or you dont have to add any). Stir til sugar is melted, and til mixture is boiling. Once the mixture starts to boil, keep stirring, but slowly, do this for 15 mins. (If some burnt sugar rises just slowly mix it back in, and if mixture curdles, dont panic, its still gonna be perfect). Take off the stove and leave to cool for an hour. Once cool, get a wooden spoon (and caramel essence if u like) and beat until shine disappears, and mixtures turns matte. This should not take more than 5 mins. The mixture should also come off the pot easy and stick to the spoon. Flatten mixture into a buttered dish, and let it set for 3-4 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I made this fudge to go on my banoffee cheesecake (having previously tried shop bought ready made fudge) this homemade fudge was by far the best in my cheesecake. It was soft and creamy and went well with the banana. I will be making homemade everytime from now on.
