After a rather Blah day last week I decided to try my hand at making fudge.  I am hunting down and testing out recipes for items to go in my Xmas Hampers at the moment, sweets, alcoholic stuff, jams, preserves etc etc so here goes for the scrummy fudge!!


  • Oil for greasing
  • 300 ml milk
  • 350 g caster sugar
  • 100 g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, chocolate chunks


1. Grease an 18cm square cake tin. (or in my case 2 small sponge tins – round)

2. Put the milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted.

3. Bring to the boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time.

4. When the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (115°C on a sugar thermometer), remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and some dark chocolate chips if you want chocolate fudge!!  Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

5. Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears.

6. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature (do not put it in the fridge). At this point I also decided it would be a good idea to carefully push small chunks of white chocolate in to decorate my fudge – NB only touch the chocolate once as it instantly melts when it hits the fudge!!!

7. Once set, cut the fudge into small squares and store in a sealed container.
