Divine Condensed Milk Fudge Recipe – No Thermometer Needed

As I’m from Torquay in Devon fudge is very close to my heart along with cream teas! I know everyone who enjoys cooking and baking will have recipes they make and you ask yourself why on earth haven’t I made this before. This is one of those recipes and this fudge is stunning, me and Paulie licked clean any instrument or pot that had a trace of mixture on it as we knew we had to wait an hour or so while it cooled, it really is THAT good. I also read some disaster experiences and I don’t own a thermometer. This recipe is from the Carnation website and it worked a treat.


  • 397g can of carnation condensed milk
  • 150ml semi skimmed milk
  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 450g sugar (I used unrefined light brown sugar)


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a non stick pan. Heat on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Turn up the heat and bring the mixture up to rapid boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and stir continuously for 15 minutes, you will feel the mixture start to thicken. To check if the mixture is ready add a spoonful to a jug of iced water, if it turns to fudge it is ready.
  3. Once your mixture is ready take it off the heat and mix with a hand whisk for 8 minutes then finish off at the end beating by hand (with a wooden spoon) for a couple more minutes.
  4. Tip the mixture into an oiled baking tray and leave to set and cool for a couple of hours.
