Recipe: Home made fudge

Chocolate and peanut butter fudge

I made this for a friend’s birthday. The recipe is so simple, if you’ve always been put off making fudge, try this recipe. But remember it’s strictly for a special treat!


oil, for greasing

200 ml milk

100ml double cream

350 g caster sugar

100 g unsalted butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

100g dark chocolate

2 large tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter (or to taste)


Grease an 18cm square cake tin.

Put the milk, cream, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted.

Bring to the boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time.

When the mixture reaches 115°C on a sugar thermometer, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears.
