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 If you do it perfectly, it's perfect!! I tried this for the first time today, and like most other reviews, you do really have to have patience with stirring. I found the whole process fun to do and will definitely do it again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Just made this for the first time today and it came out fantastically. It's smooth and creamy, but really sweet could only manage 2 little squares. It's really easy to make but warning it takes a lot of beating far longer then the it say in the instructions. I also add half a teaspoon of sea salt but you can't taste it much so going add a spoonful next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need help!! I made a batch before and it was perfect, However I am now really disabled and wondering if the beating process could be done in a mixer using a dough hook can any one advice

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to follow but takes time Have tried this using caster sugar and demerara sugar and find that caster sugar produces a smoother, but paler ,fudge. Melt chocolate on top once set and stir in chocolate chips for a richer taste.
