Russian Fudge

Package this delicious fudge up in cellophane bags for fundraisers or party gifts! But make sure you put some aside for yourself!
  • Difficulty
  • Prep time 20 mins
  • Cooking time 15-25 minutes
  • Serves
    25-30 pieces
Ingredients
    3 1/2 cups Chelsea White Sugar
    125g butter
    3 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 tsp salt
    200g sweetened condensed milk (half a standard tin)
    2 tsp vanilla essence
Method
    Grease a 20cm cake tin. Place all the ingredients except the vanilla into a medium, heavy based saucepan. Warm over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved, about 10-15 mins.
    Bring to a gentle boil and cook for about 10-15 minutes, until it reaches the soft ball stage (120°C). Remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Cool for 5 minutes then beat using an electric mixer until the fudge is creamy and thick and has lost its gloss (approx. 10 minutes).
    Pour into prepared tin, score the top and cut into pieces when set.
    Tip: Cut two sheets of baking paper the width of the tin, criss-cross the paper to line the tin making sure the sheets are long enough to extend over the sides. Use the paper to lift the fudge out of the tin once it has set.
    Special thanks to Jo Seagar for use of the Best Ever recipe.

No matter how long I cooked it it didn't thicken, so I beat it in the Kenwood and put it in fridge. It tastes yummy. Just a bit soft.

image description

great flavour and colour, tip to all like me - google 'soft ball stage' otherwise it just won't work/set.
second attempt was awesome!

Awesome, easy, perfect.

The best Russian fudge I have ever made (and tasted). Nice and creamy, not sugary like some recipes are.
