Russian Fudge

May 9th, 2011 | Posted by Andie in Recipes

I was wandering aimlessly around the house the other day when I decided to do some baking. This was fine, until I realised that actually, I couldn’t be bothered. So Rob decided he was going to make some Russian Fudge instead.

This recipe is very simple and easy to make, and tastes great!

3 1/2 cups White Sugar
125 g butter
3 tablespoons Golden Syrup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
200 g sweetened condensed milk (half a standard tin)
2 teaspoons vanilla essence

1. Place all ingredients, except the vanilla, into a saucepan.

2. Warm over a low heat until all the sugar is disolved.

3. Bring to a gentle boil (you shouldn’t need to increase the heat) and cook for about 15-20 minutes until it reaches about 120°C, aka. the soft ball stage. If you’re like me and don’t have a sugar or candy thermometer, you can test the soft ball stage by getting a glass of cold water and adding a few small drops of the mixture to it. If it forms a soft ball as it drops through the water then you’re at the right stage.

4. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla.

5. Beat until the fudge is thick and has lost its gloss.

6. Pour into a baking tin and let cool (you can put it in the fridge if you like). Once cool you can cut into bite size pieces and go for it!
