Recipe: Delicious soft English Fudge

I remember the first time I went to London. My mom won a trip for 2 and because she couldn’t decide who to take, we went with the whole family.

There was one market with a small store full of candy and as the sugar addict that I am, I had to go in. There was a display full of fudge. Like 12 different flavors and colors and everything!

We all took two pieces and tried it from each other. I liked it from the first bite, so it was no miracle that I went back the next day to get some more. I think I spent half of my vacation money on fudge.

When I started baking 2 years later, I just knew I had to make it. Sometimes I dreamt about that perfect delicious English fudge, do you know that feeling?

So after a lot of trying and failing, I found this recipe and perfected it to my taste.

It is pretty hard to get the right kind of firmness, mine are always a bit to soft, but I kinda like it. One time, I will get it totally right!

So try your best, it is not that hard, except for stopping mixing at the right time. I have to say it is a lot easier to get right if you use a candy thermometer.

English Fudge

I love fudge. The soft caramel is just so delicious. I could eat a whole batch on my own. 
There are a lot of different versions, so here is a basic recipe and feel free to try some things out!
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Cooling down1 hr
Total Time25 mins
Course: Snack
Cuisine: English
Keyword: Fudge
Servings: 50 pieces


  • 200 grams of light brown suger I used raw cane sugar
  • 100 grams of powdered sugar
  • 80 grams of butter
  • 400 grams of condensed / concentrated milk
  • bit of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or bean


  • Line a baking tray from 20×20 cm with baking paper. 
  • Put all the sugar, milk and butter in a pan and bring it to a boiling point. 
  • Keep the heat low and stir now and then.
  • When the sugar is completely melted, check for the temperature. 
    – With a candy thermometer, it has to reach 115 degrees. 
    – When you drop a bit in ice water and it holds its shape, it is also alright. 
  • Take it off the fire and start mixing. Keep mixing until the fudge is getting a bit thicker. 
  • Pour everything in the baking sheet and let it cool down. Depending on everything this can take 30 minutes to 2 hours. 
  • Cut in pieces and enjoy!


There you go! 
There are a few times you can mix the recipe up a bit. 
  • While cooking, add cinnamon or booze
  • After pouring it in the tray, add oreo crumbs, chocolate chips or something else!

The original recipe for this English Fudge is from a Dutch food blogger and you can find it here. It is in dutch though and I changed it up a bit. Feel free to check it out! I use a lot of her recipes as they are just awesome!

This batch I made with a bit of cinnamon instead of vanilla, simply because it is freaking hard to find vanilla in Spain! So why not get a bit creative!
