  • Butter - you can use either salted or unsalted butter for this recipe. Margarine is not suitable.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk - it's important to use full fat sweetened condensed milk (not skim or light) as this helps to set the fudge firm. I find that Nestle brand also sets firmer than home brand versions.
  • Golden Syrup - a sweet and sticky liquid that helps to give the fudge it's delicious caramel flvaour.
  • Brown Sugar - choose either regular brown sugar or dark brown sugar for this recipe. I generally use regular brown sugar.
  • White Chocolate - choose white baking chocolate or chocolate melts for the best results.

Step 5 - Chill

Chill the fudge in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight.

Remove from the fridge and cut into slices.

FAQ & Expert Tips

Keep the MC (measuring cup) OFF

When heating and cooking the fudge, it's important to keep the MC off. This stops the majority of the condensation from dripping back onto the fudge.

Use full fat sweetened condensed milk

It's important to use full fat sweetened condensed milk (not light or skim) as it sets firmer.

Storing

Store the caramel fudge in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.
Place sheets of baking paper between each layer.

Freezing

It's possible to freeze fudge in an airtight container for up to 2 months, however the texture and flavour may change. For best results, keep the fudge in the fridge and consume within 2-3 weeks.

    Someone else made this and brought to work and I loved it and had to give it a go. I am not usually a big fridge person but I'm definitely this fudge person! It's pretty rich so I cut it up pretty small. My husband and daughter love it too.

    Hi, I'm hoping to make this as Wedding favours. Is this recipe for a TM5? I believe Varoma temp is slightly different between the TM31 & the TM5?

    • Lauren Matheson says

      Hello, This recipe is for both a TM5 and TM31 🙂 I'm pretty sure it's called steaming temp on a TM31 .

        Thank you Lauren. I'll see how I go?

    Absolutely fantastic...5* My husband isn't a fudge fan - he says it's too sickly etc...but he LOVED this and ate more than I did!!! If anyone has been to the Fudge Kitchen in UK...it's on par with their fudge, creamy and smooth and has a fantastic flavour.
    BTW, I keep it in the freezer and think its actually nicer when just out of freezer, leave for 1o mins before trying to cut!

    Oh no! I left the white choc in the bowl and added all the other ingredients instead of adding at the end.
    Any chance it will still be ok?

    I made this the other day it was delicious how do I go about doubling the recipe, what adjustment should I make for time etc? Thanks

      Hi Melissa, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I think it's probably best to make two batches of this recipe instead of doubling it I'm afraid. Sorry I can't be of more help x

    • Leanne says

      I successfully doubled the recipe. I made the following adjustments:
      Step 2- chop for 10 seconds
      Step 3-cook for 12 minutes
      Step 4- put measuring cup back on and cook for 32 minutes.
      Step 5- mix for 20 seconds

      Thank you for the recipe Lauren. Perfect treat.

      Definitely make it in two batches. I've tried double batches twice and it doesn't set. It works as a single batch perfectly every time.

    Hi,
    I was wondering if this could be frozen successfully? I usually make all my fudge in chocolate molds and then store in freezer until I am giving them out in hampers (I make roughly 20 hampers at a time). I usually do this over a couple of weeks so trying to write out my preparation order list.
    Thank you

    • Lauren says

      Hm, I haven't tried to freeze it before. I'd suggest popping a piece into the freezer overnight as a test. Sorry I can't be of more help xx

        Thanks. Will give it a try

      • Kate says

        Hi Kirsty, has it frozen well? I would love to make this as a gift but we have a 7hr car drive and I think it will fare better if it can leave our place frozen!

    Didn't have enough white chocolate so did half white and half milk choc and it was delicious, don't know how I will wait the 6 hours before I can cut it!

      Ooh that sounds great!

    • Christine says

      After making this a number of times, we found we didn't have enough white chocolate, so did half white and half milk chocolate. We thought this fudge couldn't get any better, but now we have it this way by choice. Sooooooo delicious.

    Hi how long will it store for and what is the best way to store it?

    Reply

    • Lauren says

      Hi Sharyn, I usually store ours in an airtight container in the fridge. You could store it in a container in your pantry, however it may go a little soft depending on how warm it is. To be honest the longest we've stored it is around a week.

    I had absolute rave reviews about this fudge from all the people who tried some, and it was the first time I'd tried a recipe without glucose syrup. However I did find it was difficult to smooth over once poured out. So I didn't get the smooth clean finish which presented as nicely once wrapped for Xmas gifts. There's another recipe on the TM site called salted caramel fudge which did achieve the smooth finish on top. Possibly it's the slight difference in measurements or cooking times or maybe it's the addition of glucose? Still it was delicious, I'd make it again just the same, but not for gifting ?

    Reply

    • Lauren says

      Thanks Lisa, you are probably right, the glucose syrup probably does make it easier to smooth. I'm really glad everyone enjoyed the taste x
