Russian fudge is a one-pot mix and a real treat that children can make with a little bit of help. You can add walnuts or dried fruit to this recipe also.
3 cups sugar
½ cup milk
¾ cup (½ 395g tin) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp golden syrup
100 g butter
1 pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup raisins, or other chopped dried fruit (optional)
- Line a 20cm x 18cm baking tin with baking paper.
- Combine all ingredients, except walnuts and raisins, in a large pot. Cook over a low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently so the mixture doesn’t burn. Cook until mixture is a rich golden colour.
- Remove from the heat and beat until thick with a wooden spoon (about 2 minutes). Add nuts and raisins, if using, and pour into prepared tin. Cut into small pieces when set.
