This is not a recipe for traditional fudge. There is no need for a thermometer or trying to reach the ‘soft ball’ stage with your sugar mix. These Fudge Squares are an easy, no-bake traybake where you mix a caramel syrup with crushed biscuits and top it all with chocolate. Yum!
These were a big hit in the Traybakes household. The base is sweet and a little crumbly and, funnily enough, a little bit fudge too.
It’s a simple bake, but sometimes, the simple ones are the best!
2 tbsp golden syrup
½ tin/7oz/200g condensed milk
4oz/110g soft brown sugar
8oz/225g crushed digestive biscuits/graham crackers
8oz/225g chocolate, to cover (milk or dark, your choice)
1. Place the butter, sugar, condensed milk and syrup in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer for about 5 mins, stirring with a wooden spoon so it doesn’t stick.
2. Crush the biscuits to create fine crumbs. Then mix with the caramel and press into a traybake tin. I used my 20cm/8inch square tin, which I lined with parchment paper.
3. Leave to cool and firm up. Then top with melted chocolate. When the chocolate has set, cut into squares. Enjoy!
