Condensed Milk Fudge

FudgeI’ve started getting a little bored of baking (and eating) muffins, cakes, biscuits etc. So I’ve decided to try my hand at making sweets. Admittedly, it is also that Xmas is coming so I can make these and hand then out as simple gifts. I have started with the simplest sweet I could think of,  fudge. Be careful with the cooking time, its a bit tricky at first but try it a few times and you’ll get there. The fudge in the picture was a little overcooked, but you get the idea. 

Ingredients

  • 400g tin condensed milk
  • 450g brown sugar
  • 150ml milk
  • 115g butter

Method

  1. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.
  2. Heat together the milk, condensed milk, butter and sugar over a low heat in a non-stick saucepan for 10-15 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan often, until the mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into a glass of cold water.
  3. Once the mixture reaches this stage, remove it from the heat and beat it for ten minutes until it becomes thick and grainy.
  4. Pour it into the baking tin and leave it to cool completely before serving.
  5. Once the fudge is cooled, either cut it into small squares or break it apart with your hands. This recipe will yield around 20 portions of fudge.
