Fabby Fruity Fudge! 2006/08/28

Posted by Mummy Ruth in baking, Cooking.

[Picture of sliced up Fabby Fruity Fudge]Once upon a time I was getting myself all ready to make Mumsie’s Raspberry Fluff when I mistakenly bought a can of ‘Carnation Condensed Milk’ instead of Evaporated Milk. Put this down to a mummy-brain moment! Once I had bought the Evaporated milk and made the Fluff, I was left wondering what to do with this tin of Condensed Milk… then I remembered… Fabby Fruity Fudge! Of course! Obvious really. But for those unfamiliar with Fudgy matters…here’s the secret family recipe (ahem)…

Prep Time: 15 mins.,
Cooking Time: 10-15 mins.,
Makes 750g.


  • Big non-stick Saucepan;
  • Wooden Spoon;
  • 180mm Square Tin;
  • sugar thermometer.

Shopping List:

  • 450g Demerara Sugar;
  • 397g Can Light Carnation Condensed Milk (not evaporated!);
  • 150ml Semi-Skimmed Milk;
  • 115g Unsalted Butter;
  • 85g Mixed Dried Fruit.

To Make the Fabby Fruity Fudge:

Grease and base line an 180mm square tin with baking parchment. 20060828_04a.jpgGently heat all the ingredients in a large, non-stick saucepan, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

Bring to the boil then simmer gently for 10-15 minutes, stirring continuously, until the temperature is 116C on a sugar thermometer. If you do not have ones of these (I don’t!), test the fudge by dropping a little of the mixture into a jug of cold water. If a soft ball is formed, the fudge is ready.

Fudge can be stored for up to 1 month in an airtight container.
