My Mother-In-Law Cathy's Creamy Fudge Recipe

fudge recipe with hot chocolate

Update post.

My wonderful mother-in-law Cathy makes the best fudge in the world and I’m incredibly excited to share her delicious recipe so you can rustle it up in your kitchen. My husband loved this sweet treat as a child and it’s his favourite to this day.

Fudge makes the most wonderful DIY gift for any time of the year but we often package them up with ribbons as gifts at Christmas.

Easy to make, it’s one of those therapeutic recipes that allows you to lose yourself as you stir away. Anything repetitive like that makes me seriously relax. It’s one of the reasons I love baking so much (aside from the eating bit)!

I also love dipping my finger in to the bowl once it’s cooled as the mixture tastes of my favourite dessert: sticky toffee pudding!

You must make this treat!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups sugar (we like muscovado sugar for it’s deep flavour and chocolately hue)
  • 25 ml golden syrup
  • 1 tin condensed milk
  • 187 ml milk
  • 125 g butter

brown sugar fudge

Method:

Place all the ingredients into a pot. Stir over a medium heat until the mixture boils. Turn the heat down to low. Simmer slowly for 25 minutes until brown, stirring occasionally.

Remove from the heat and beat with a wooden spoon for about 6 minutes until the fudge starts to set on the sides of the pot.

Pour immediately into a greased baking tin and leave to set in room temperature.

You can add one teaspoon of vanilla extract or caramel essence when removing from the heat to add flavour if you like.

Cut into pieces with a sharp knife.

Stored in an air-tight container, fudge stays fresh in a cool, dry place for 1-2 weeks. If kept in the fridge, it can last for 2-3 weeks and in a freezer for 2-3 months.

Yummy!

    Who doesn’t smile with these kind of photos?? I think the holiday would be incomplete without fudge, and this is the best reason to stop blogging, and get into the kitchen!!
    Thanks Vicki!!

    This looks amazing. I’ve never tried fudge but I might attempt it for my neighbours over Xmas this year!

    This looks thoroughly irresistable and the ingredients are now on my shopping list! The photographs are gorgeous and obviously taken by a talented photographer. The only thing I am confused about is in whose world something like this lasts for 1 to 2 weeks – I have to goo now as I am trying to resist licking the screen!!!

    OMG. I am actually slobbering all over the screen. I love fudge and was planning to make another recipe recently but this might just top it. The boys’ favourite pudding is Sticky Toffee so this is perfect for Bonfire weekend. Thanks hon! x
