Condensed Milk Fudge recipe

This delectable fudge combines all the traditional flavours of fudge with the ease of using only four ingredients. Make up a big batch and then box up any leftovers to give as Christmas presents. Feel free to add some liquor or some roasted nuts to the basic mixture to mix up the flavours a little bit.

Ingredients:

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

Method of Preparation:

  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.

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.

Review by Jay Brewer on 2nd September 2011:

I tried this recipe but after 24 hrs it hadn't set, I then reheated the mixture on a high temp, added chocolate, nuts, almond favouring and whisked the hell out of it. Soon after I had what I describe as a fudge crumble (bit like coughing candy). But it's nice!

Comment by Eddie Brady on 3rd September 2011:

This is the basic recipe and can yield several results. My version goes in the fridge, then in the pan again to reheat the following day. JAY BREWER, you left it too long on the re-heat. Try again, but when it goes in the pan, dont leave it so long. You will get a creamy smoth melt in the mouth texture.

I made fudge to this recipe, cooked it for over an hour on a low heat, another 30 mins on a medium heat and never did acheive "softball". So I poured it out anyway, intending to come back to it next day. It cooled to a perfect consistency.

This was my first time ever making fudge and it was simpler than I expected. It set easily for me without the need for putting in the fridge.

Worked perfect first time:) - you have to boil to a high temp, around 110°c, then when you take off the heat, use an electric whisk, until it goes grainy and dull. Using a sugar thermometer really helps.

Review by Samantha on 30th September 2012:

Just tried this receipe, I didn't have a sugar thermometer so i just followed the instructions to the T. I used an electric whisk and beat it for a good 10 minutes once i had removed from the heat & added Vanilla at this stage as well, it seems to be setting quite well and tastes like fudge! so it seems to have worked :)

I tried this recipe and loved it was the first time I had made fudge and it worked perfectly however I would say leave the fudge for a day in the fridge once its set and it tastes so much better and not as condensed milk tasting.
I did use a thermometer and don't think It would of worked without one as I wouldn't of had it on the heat for as long as I did.
I also found a tip someone else that said to test it you drop a bit into a glass of cold water which recipe states but to then take it out the glass and roll it into a ball in your fingers if you can do this without it sticking then its ready and it worked perfectly for me.

Review by Fergal on 28th February 2013:

Absolutely AMAZING! It is really easy to do and tastes perfect. I did it in a circular tin and it crumbles a bit but the best fudge I have ever tasted.

Review by Opel on 4th May 2013:

This is a great recipe. You do have to boil gently for about 15 mins until you can roll a bit of the mixture into a ball(ish) between your fingers when it is dropped into iced water. Then whisk until mixture is thick and just starting to set, then pour out. Delicious!
