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 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable - A real champ! I added Nutella in the end and stamped it. Used dark brown sugar. The result was astounding! Love the recipe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Burnt Followed instructions word for word, even took some advice from other comments. Had it less than 115 the whole time (in the 90-110 range) after the sugar had dissolved. Never attempting one of these recipes again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful This is the worst possible recipe to follow!! Timings mean absolutely nothing. By the time it had started to even attempt to thicken up there was less than half the mixture left. Hugely disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, quick and simple fudge recipe Done this a few times and it always works. I don't always have a full can of condensed milk but I weigh what I have and reduce everything else proportionately - still works fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mine was a flop After cool-down I added speckled eggs and started beating but it wouldn’t come together it was just crumbs :( What did I do wrong?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good recipe Makes good fudge. If I were to use Devon clotted cream for this fudge, which would I replace? The condensed milk or the normal milk or even both? Want to make proper Devonshire clotted cream fudge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Reminds me of the fudge my auntie used to make. Good arm workout. Didn’t need a sugar thermometer, you can tell by a combination of time and colour that it’s ready. Cut when still warm
