Condensed Milk Fudge Recipe

-- Advertisements --
I believe that a condensed milk fudgerecipe should be the base of all fudge recipes. I really do not like any fudge recipe that doesn’t contain condensed milk, and I can 100% tell if its real fudge (condensed milk) or fake fudge as you can not compare the taste.
This is an easy fudge recipe, there are no complicated part to it, just follow the instructions and pay special attention to your stir/mixing duties as this is one recipe that will call for a constant stir of the ingredients in the beginning, and if you don’t, it will most likely be a ruined batch.


  • 1 x 400 ml Can of condensed milk
  • 875 ml white sugar
  • 125 ml water
  • 125 g real butter
  • 30 ml golden syrup (In the USA can normally be found in the international isle in the grocery store)
    • Golden syrup is cane sugar based, as an alternative you can use corn syrup or glucose syrup, but stay away from honey as it will change the taste of the fudge.
  • 10 ml vanilla essence


  1. Heat sugar and water slowly together until sugar dissolved, it is preferable to do this over a low heat.
  2. Add the butter, condensed milk and syrup.
  3. You can now turn the heat up and bring the mixture to the boil, while stirring continuously.  If you don’t stir is will burn very easily.
  4. Turn stove back to low and carry on cooking for 20 to 40 minutes.  At this stage you only have to stir every now and again.
  5. From the 20 minute mark (above), test the fudge to see if it reaches a soft ball stage (take a spoon and dip it into the mixture, then let the mixture drip into a cup of cold water.  If the drop turnings into a ball like shape, it is ready).
  6. Remove from heat and add vanilla essence and beat until smooth (the addition of the vanilla essence sometimes makes the mixture bubble up a lot, so stir quickly if that happens, and don’t get a fright, it happens!
  7. You need to keep on stirring for at least 10 minutes, until the mixture goes from looking shinny to a fudge look.  A  fast electric beating will help keep the time to 10 minutes or else you will have to stir by hand for a longer (its worth the effort)
  8. Line a baking tray with plastic wrap and pour mixture into the baking tray.
  9. Allow to cool before you cut.
  10. Cut into your preferred shape when the mixture is semi-dry.
