Russian Fudge

This is great to make and have in the fridge so when that sweet tooth bites you reach for this safe threat and not something that will end up with nasty repercussions.


200g butter
1 can condensed milk
3/4 cup milk
2 Tbspns golden syrup
4 cups sugar
1 tspn vanilla essence

1. Put all ingredients, apart from vanilla essence, in a pot and bring to the boil stirring all the time.
2. Boil for roughly 20 minutes, still stirring all the time.
3. In a bowl of cold water drop a little of the fudge mixture (test throughout the 20 mins of boiling), when it is at the soft ball stage remove from heat.
4. Add vanilla essence and beat with an electric beater for approximately 5 minutes until you can see it starting to set.
5. Pour into greased tin (or lined with baking paper) and place in fridge to cool and set.
6. Cut into pieces once set and keep in the fridge

  1. I have two questions about the ingredients:
    First, what is “golden syrup”? Maple syrup? Corn syrup? anything with a golden color that I like the flavor of?
    Second, how do I find “1 can condensed milk”? Is this the same as sweetened condensed milk, or evaporated milk?
    I’m in the U.S., and I’m afraid you’re referencing items that can be easily found on the shelf in NZ but may not be known by the same terms here. I desperately want to try this recipe, but I don’t want to use the wrong items and end up hating it because I did it wrong. Please help!
    Thank you!!

    • Hello there
      Golden syrup is refined from sugar cane and you can get it at whole foods or at trader joes in the US. And yes you are right 1 can of condensed milk is the same as sweetened condensed milk. 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk in New Zealand and Australia = 395grams. You can use the sweetened or the skim 99% variety. Sorry for the local lingo, I will consider a wider audience in the future.
      I hope you enjoy the fudge.
