Fudge Squares

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!

Ingredients

2 tbsp golden syrup

6oz/170g butter

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!

  1. My caramel separated as it was cooking, any suggestions?

      It’s possible it got too hot too quickly. If it happens again, I would try taking it off the heat, let it cool for a while and then stir constantly when you put it back on the heat. I hope it works out for you!
