Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients, apart from vanilla essence, in a pot and bring to the boil stirring all the time.
  2. Boil for roughly 20 minutes, still stirring all the time.
  3. In a bowl of cold water drop a little of the fudge mixture (test throughout the 20 mins of boiling), when it is at the soft ball stage remove from heat.

  5. Pour into greased tin (or lined with baking paper) and place in fridge to cool and set.

  1. Find it difficult to believe that so many people say they halved the sugar. It’s almost as if it’s a mistake in the recipe and the cook got friends to say they halved the sugar. One person said this doesn’t work and it just goes like caramel, but the persistent, ubiquitous chorus of know-all half-the-sugar people stay quiet and pretend that it’s true.

  2. This worked a wonder Iโ€™m only twelve and I managed it it was easy and simple to follow and my siblings loved it it tastes really good when you coat chocolate with it.

  3. Best Russian fudge Iโ€™ve ever had! Whole family loved it, sadly eaten in 1 day ๐Ÿ™

    P.s only used half the sugar but kept the other ingredients the same – AMAZING

  4. Delicious! My partner absolutely loves this recipe too! I too only used half the the sugar for both recipes and it was yum!

  5. Mine turned out really soft and fudgie, which isnโ€™t what fudge is supposed to taste like. Make it taste harder and softer and less rich and richer.

    1. Omg…it tastes of childhood! Thank you for transporting me temporarily back to my grandmother’s yellow Formica kitchen table.

  6. Disappointed I didn’t find this recipe and used the one from the Edmonds page…it’s different to this and this is the one I remember..sadly my book is missing the back few pages that included the sweets. Going to make this one now. Thanks !! Ps dont understand why Edmonds have changed so many of their recipes!!
