6 fudge recipes to make at home

Looking for a homemade gift for someone with a sweet tooth? These six fudge recipes are great for a special occasion and there's a flavour to suit all tastes

These blocks of sweet, homemade fudge are hard to resist. Package up a box of these sweet treats for any special occasion and try a variety of flavours from fruity and light to rich and chocolatey.


White chocolate fudge

With just four ingredients you can create white chocolate chip fudge. These squares of deliciousness are quick to make, too, when you’re really craving something sweet. Just the right balance of smooth taste and crumbly texture, these are far superior to grainy store-bought versions. 

Clementine and black pepper

The mix of zesty clementine and spicy black pepper brings just the right amount of heat in this extra special funky fudge recipe that offers something a little different. Be sure to add plenty of clementine or orange to your mix to get that citrus hit. 

Bacon and banana

A maverick fudge recipe, this mix of banana and bacon is one for the daring. The banana adds smooth texture and a subtle fruity aftertaste while the slightly salty bacon cuts through the sweetness of the fudge. 

Vanilla fudge

A confirmed classic and crowd-pleasing morsel, vanilla fudge is the king of our selection. No one could refuse a buttery, melt-in-the-mouth vanilla flavoured treat. This easy-to-follow recipe only needs five ingredients and is adaptable if you want to experiment with fruity additions. 

Cardamom fudge

Rich dark chocolate combined with fragrant cardamom in a buttery fudge base is the ultimate grown-up sweet treat. Sprinkle with freeze-dried raspberries to finish for an extra burst of zingy flavour. 

Microwave boozy fudge

This miracle dessert is one you won’t need to slave over. Our microwave fudge can be whipped up in minutes, no sugar thermometer needed. A spoonful of coffee liqueur, amaretto or brandy adds a boozy kick.
