Hello everyone, Monday is here again and I hope your first Sunday of Advent was wonderful.
Now there are less than 4 weeks left till Christmas time… the countdown has begun.
Today’s temptation is delicious vanilla fudge, and for me there is no Christmas without fudge. These treats have a rich vanilla flavor, and they are quite sweet, but it’s Christmas!
They also make a lovely gift, who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive a box of homemade vanilla fudge..?
Here is the recipe, enjoy.
- 3 cups (675 g) superfine or caster sugar*
- 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons (100 g) butter
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1 cup + 1 tablespoon (250 ml) heavy cream
- 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (100 ml) sweetened condensed milk
- 2 vanilla beans
- 1 3/4 oz. (50 g) white chocolate
* I use superfine sugar here, it melts more quickly and it makes it easier to avoid a grainy fudge. If you can’t fine superfine sugar just use regular, but remember to stir very well.
Put all the ingredients except the white chocolate into a pan, place on a low heat until the sugar dissolves, about 10-15 minutes.
Turn up the heat to high and boil until the color is a nice golden caramel, stirring continously.
The caramel is done when a sugar thermometer shows 248 ˚F (120 ˚C).
Remove the pan from the heat and pour the caramel into a mixing bowl.
Beat on low speed for a few minutes.
After 2 minutes of beating, add the white chocolate. Continue beating until the mixture thickens slightly.
Pour the mixture into a lined, quite small baking pan. Press the fudge down into the corners and smooth the surface.
Leave to cool sightly, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours before cutting into squares.
Vanilla fudge can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several weeks.
That’s it for now, I wish you a great day!
Hugs from me to you.
Is the white chocolate melted or not? Or does it melt by stiring it under the fudge?
Hi Laura, it will melt when added to the warm mixture.
Hi! My fudge did not stick, I mean it broke when I tried to cut the squares. Did I do something wrong, maybe I blended the mixture too much in the pan?
Hi Amanda, you may have stirred the mixture too much, stir as little as possible to get the fudgy consistency. 🙂
