When it comes to making this fudge, you really can’t go wrong. It’s important to have your tin already lined and white chocolate chopped and ready to add before you start, as once you’ve made this fudge it does begin to set quite quickly.

How to Make this Recipe:

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan along with the golden syrup, sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar. Cook until thickened and golden brown.
  2. Add the white chocolate and mix well.
  3. Pour the Caramel Fudge into prepared tin and place into the fridge to set.

Expert Tips for Making my Easy Caramel Fudge Recipe:

  • I’ve made this fudge up to a week before I’ve needed to use it and simply store it in a sealed container inside of the fridge, to be honest it doesn’t seem to last very long when it’s made!
  • I also like to use a good quality white chocolate when making this Caramel Fudge, I think it gives it a rich and smooth consistency, which is what fudge is all about after all!
  • When it comes time to pour the fudge into the tin, make sure you have everything ready and work quickly as the fudge will begin to set.
  • When it’s time to cute the fudge, let it out on your bench for 15 minutes or so and use a sharp knife which has been run under hot water to help slice it.

        It didn’t set! Been in fridge for over 24 hours and It’s not set.

      • Lauren Matheson

        Hi Caroline, if your slice is not setting I would suggest the ingredients were not cooked for long enough. This fudge actually starts setting/firming once you combine all of the ingredients.

    Not that it gets the opportunity but how long roughly would this store for?

    is this not the sort of fudge that needs to be boiled to 116 celcius and then left to cool and beat?

    I made this for the first time this Christmas. I gave some to my neighbours who have been wonderful in this crazy year and apparently the neighbours have been discussing it with each other behind my back. My chef neighbour said it’s the best fudge he’s ever tasted. I have another batch on now – thanks from me and my happy neighbours!

    Can you use which choc chips instead of a block of chocolate?

    Reply

    • Lauren Matheson

      Hi Louise, I haven’t tried the recipe using chocolate chips i’m sorry. I don’t think it would work quite as well as chocolate chips are usually a different type of chocolate compared to blocks of chocoalte.

      Hi Lauren! I adore your website, it is so lovely. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe with us. Do you know if I could substitute the golden syrup for corn syrup? Are they the same thing? Thanks so much!
