I made our family’s favourite Christmas Indulgence last week. A morsel referred to in the Edmonds Cookbook (the Kiwi chicks cooking Bible) as Russian Fudge. I can’t make Chocolate Fudge or Coconut Ice, or much else in the confectionery dept but I make MEAN Russian Fudge…
3 cups sugar
1/2 c milk
1/2 c condensed milk
1/8th tsp salt
1tbs golden syrup
Put the sugar and milk in a heavy based saucepan and heat gently until the sugar is melted, stirring continuously. Add the butter, condensed milk, salt and golden syrup Stir it until butter is melted [Edited – oops ]and bring to the boil.
Continue boiling till it reaches soft ball stage, only stirring occasionally to prevent sticking to the pan. Remove from heat, cool for 10 mins and beat until thick. Pour into a greased pan, allow cool slightly then mark into squares. Remove from pan when cold and store in airtight container, not in the fridge.
Then eat it…
Make more if it…
Eat that too.
I think I might just pop over and visit deelea…
mmmm. I’ll have to add that one to my Christmas hampers. I just bought two tins of condensed milk today. I knew I’d need it for something.
Do you remember having paper (Lily) cups full of fudge and coconut ice at school fairs? I used to spend all my pocket money on them. Yum :)
Famous Kiwi cricketers Lance & Chris Cairns have started selling their own old fashioned fudge at supermarkers – it’s soooo good.

That sounds lovely – very similar to "tablet" I think (Scottish delicacy). I so mustn’t attempt this recipe, tempting though it looks – got given a HUGE tin of chocolates yesterday by a client, I’m *never* going to lose weight at this rate!
