Fabulous Fudge

"From Jo Seagar. If you like a smooth creamy luxurious fudge, not at all sugary or hard, and one that is easy to cut into portions without crumbling, then this is the one. Definitely not part of a daily diet. Make for special occasions only."

  • Spray and line with non-stick baking paper, a 20 x 30 cm, quite deep (at least 4 cm) tin, or 2 smaller tins.
  • Place all ingredients, except the chocolate and vanilla, in a large heavy based saucepan and stir over medium heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.
  • Bring to the boil and boil gently until it becomes very thick and changes colour to a dark caramel brown paper shade – about 6 minutes, to the soft ball stage, 116°C on a sugar thermometer.
  • Stir often to prevent it catching on the bottom – I find a silicon spatula the best gadget to stir with.
  • Remove from heat and stand until the bubbles subside.
  • Stir in the chocolate and vanilla until melted and smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared tin and smooth the surface.
  • Cool to room temperature (about 3 hours) then refrigerate until firm.
  • Cut into squares.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 6 weeks – if you’re lucky.

    Yum, made this from Jo Seagars website at Christmas. Definately a 5 star recipe, made it with dark chocolate because I didn't keep up with the stirring part of the recipe it caught a bit so used dark chocolate to hide it. Still tasted great.


I'm in the southern most part of the world. In Invercargill New Zealand.
