  • 500g golden caster sugar
  • 500ml double cream
  • 3 tbsp liquid glucose (available in most supermarkets and chemists)
  • 140g white chocolate, cut into chunks (not too small or they'll melt completely)
    White chocolate squares, stacked

    White chocolate

    why-t chok-lit

    To purists, this is not chocolate because it is made only from the fat or butter of the cacao…


  1. Line a 22cm square non-stick tin with baking parchment. Put the caster sugar, double cream and liquid glucose in a pan. Slowly heat together, stirring continually, until the sugar melts and stops feeling grainy on the bottom of the pan. Turn up the heat and fast boil until a small amount of the mixture dropped into a glass of cold water sets into a soft ball that you can pick up on a teaspoon. By this time the bubbles in the mixture will look small and even.

  2. Turn off the heat and keep stirring for 5 mins or until the mix starts to thicken a little. Sprinkle in the white chocolate and swirl it through the mixture once using a spatula or the handle of a wooden spoon. Pour into a tin and leave the fudge overnight to set, then turn out and cut into squares. Will keep for up to 2 months in an airtight container – don't store in the fridge or the fudge will go soft.

This was lovely fudge, made as a gift for Mothers Day, and I will definitely make again. I used a 300ml tub of cream with the other ingredients adjusted accordingly, used a thermometer, and left the fudge until it had cooled and thickened somewhat before stirring in the chocolate so it didn't all melt. Some still melted but it gave a nice swirl effect. If you leave it too long the fudge will be too thick to pour into the tin and spread evenly, so keep an eye on it.

Such a good recipe I have made it so many times. Only thing I would say is not to use any white chocolate that is softer in the middle as it meant the fudge didn't set properly

Absolutely gorgeous this fudge is!! I've made it a couple of times and it is fairly easy as fudge goes..... Both times i must of put the white chocolate in when the fudge was to hot because it melted straight away but that didn't effect the taste :)

Made this for the first time yesterday and it came out perfect, really yummy. Very smooth fudge, boiled it for 20 minutes, I also listened to the comments and left the white chocolate (Nestle) in the chunks it came in and they only melted the tiniest bit so it looked amazing also. Without a doubt I will be making this again 5*****

I have never made fudge before but I will most certainly be making it again. Like a lot of the reviewers the chocolate melted but who cares. I will be trying some more variations for Christmas. The possibilities are endless. mmmmmmmm

Fab recipe! Eventhough white chocolate didn't stay in chunks, as melted straight away... But was still yummy and had tons of compliments!

I just made this fudge and I am not sure how people have got it wrong below but this is the best fudge I ever made, I changed the flavours to vanilla and added cherries and walnuts, the fudge tastes just like the handmade fudge I had at Walt Disney World. Love it, will use this recipe again.

left to set over night and was runny. Threw back in the pan and let boil without stirring, stirred for 5 mins and now I have instant fudge!!!!!! :-)

I used a thermometer to get the right temperature so it was a lovely texture, but mine burned on the bottom of the pan, that could have been my pan or too high heat. But it still tasted good, have told everyone the burned bits are vanilla seeds. lol Also all my chocolate melted into the fudge even though I thought I had chopped the chunks large. Will defiantly make again with a lower heat and wait longer to add the chocolate.

Delicious! Best fudge ever. Shame the recipe instructions are somewhat lacking. It doesn't say how long you need to boil it for- hence why some people have ended up with runny fudge. I found 15-20mins of rapid boiling was needed to make it colour and thicken. Also, it doesn't explain clearly enough what soft ball is. I found a helpful YouTube video which explained it far better! Basically when the fudge is in the water- you should be able to pick it up between a thumb and forefinger and roll it into a ball. Despite all my stirring, I ended up with a wonderfully smooth, not grainy fudge. It was a little crumbly. I made a milk and white chocolate version, by simply tipping in 2 packets of chocolate buttons. I will be attempting multiple variations of this- dolly mixture fudge is next!

Has anyone successfully turned this into rum and raisin?

Has anyone tried adding alcohol to this recipe or is it best to use a recipe containing condensed milk?

I cannot seem to find liquid glucose anywhere! Is there any substitute for liquid glucose?

HI there, liquid glucose is available in many of the big supermarkets. Check the baking section and look for the Dr Oetker brand. You can also buy this and other brands online. Hope this helps.

Brilliant, simple fudge recipe. Didn't use a sugar thermometer as I don't own one, but it turned out fine anyway. I topped it with freeze-dried strawberries and chopped pistachios and it looks really nice.
