DIY Christmas: Honeycomb Fudge

And we’re back!

So glad to hear you enjoyed the honeycomb recipe on Tuesday. I’m still munching & crunching myself!

Hopefully you’ve saved some, though, because today I’m going to show you how to make honeycomb fudge.

You will need:

1 tin of condensed milk

80 grams of butter

150 soft brown sugar

Vanilla essence

Sea salt

Honeycomb (check out my super easy recipe here!)

Milk chocolate

Line a baking tin with parchment paper and prepare a glass of ice cold water.

In a large saucepan, melt the condensed milk, sugar and butter together until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vanilla.

Next bring the mixture to a rolling boil and stir, constantly, for 5-10 minutes.

TEST TIME: drop a little bit of the mixture into the glass of cold water. If it forms into a nice tear or ball shape, take the mixture off the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.

Add a good pinch of sea salt to the fudge and stir, again, for about 10 minutes or until your mixture begins to harden.

Pour into your baking tin, and top with whatever takes your fancy. I’ve gone for crushed honeycomb and drizzled milk chocolate over it.

Allow the fudge to cool at room temperature for a couple of hours.

And voila! Chop into squares and wrap with brown paper, little gift bags, or whatever you’re using this Christmas. Don’t forget to save a little for yourself, too…this is too tasty to miss!
