Steven's Almond Fudge Recipe

Makes 16 small squares.


  • 1 can (385g) condensed milk
  • 450g sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 150ml full cream milk
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla pod
  • 1 packet (100g) whole salted almonds (Not a fan of nuts? Simply leave them out. Want to mix it up? Try using toasted coconut flakes instead of almonds!)


  • Place ingredients, except almonds, in a saucepan and heat over a low temperature¬†until sugar has dissolved (wash remaining crystals from side of pan with a brush dipped in water)
  • Boil, stirring constantly, until bubbles become large and glassy
  • Remove from heat and beat with a wooden spoon until thick and fudge-like
  • Press into a 20 x 20cm baking tray lined with baking paper to set
  • Unmould and cut into 16 squares
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks - if you can resist!
