Ingredients
  • 400 g (14 oz) caster sugar
  • 150 ml (5 fl oz) whole milk
  • 200 ml (7 fl oz) condensed milk
  • 100 g (3½ oz) butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients into a pan and heat over a low-medium heat with continual stirring.
  2. Once all the sugar has dissolved, increase the heat. Cook the mixture on a rolling boil for about 15 minutes.
  3. Check the temperature with a sugar thermometer. What do you mean? You haven’t got a sugar thermometer?? Get one! When the temperature reaches 115°C turn off the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Grease and line a 7-8″ (18-20 cm) cake tin with baking paper. Grease the baking paper. Take a baking tray and pour in about ½” (1 cm) of cold water.
  5. Place the pan of fudge in the baking tray of water. Stir continuously with a flat-ended spatula until the fudge has lost its glossy shine.
  6. Pour the fudge into the cake tin and smooth out. Chill in the ‘fridge overnight before cutting into squares.
Titli's Tips
If you don’t have a sugar thermometer you can check the consistency of the mixture by dropping a teaspoon of it into a bowl of cold water. You should be able to make a soft ball which keeps its shape.

If your fudge wont set overnight put it into a saucepan and gently reheat it. Boil for a bit longer until you achieve success with the softball test.

To make chocolate fudge add 60g (2 oz) of cocoa powder to your list of ingredients at the beginning.
