Easter Fudge Recipe | Easter Bakes 2024!

Hello lovelies,

If you’ve been a reader of mine for a while, you’ll know back last year, during the Easter period, I uploaded a fudge recipe which was an absolute hit with you all. So, it only felt right to share another as let’s be honest, can you ever have enough fudge recipes? I think not…

Now, my previous fudge recipe was slightly simpler than the one I’m sharing with you today, though if I’m being 100% real with you all, I feel like todays fudge is a vast improvement on last years and that’s all down to the queen of baking herself, Jane Patisserie.

Yup, I’m back with another recipe of Jane’s as she really is the gift that keeps on giving and let me tell you this, this fudge recipe of hers has taken my fudge game up a notch or two. That’s a fact!

Put it this way, there wasn’t a crumb left after my family got their smackers around these beauties! I mean plain fudge is such a delicious sweet treat, let alone adding the some elite Easter chocolate (I used smartie mini eggs) into the mix – its just heavenly.

I made a batch a couple of weeks back, just as practice with no idea on what the outcome of the fudge would be BUT after taking the smallest bite, I instantly knew I couldn’t keep this from you guys. I knew in my heart that the right thing to do was come on here and share it with you all today. I’m good pal like that (haha).

In all seriousness, I need to put you guys onto this fudge recipe as it’s unbelievably good!

So, if you’d like to make todays fudge, you know the drill. Keep on scrolling and you’ll find the recipe below:


Category: Sweet Treat

Prep Time: 40 Minutes

Bake Time: 20 Minutes

Setting Time: 4 Hours

Overall Time: 5+ Hours


Ingredients You Need To Make The Fudge:

  • 450g Of Double Cream
  • 550g Of Caster Sugar
  • 200g Of Golden Syrup
  • 2tsp Of Vanilla Extract
  • 200g Of White Chocolate
  • 300g Of Smarties Mini Eggs

Ingredients You Need For Decorating:

  • 200g Of Smarties Mini Eggs

How To Make The Fudge:

  • Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients and line a 9inch square baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Secondly, in a large saucepan, over a low heat, pour the 450g of double cream, 200g of golden syrup, 550g of caster sugar and 2tsp of vanilla extract and stir together until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Bring to the mixture to the boil and continue boiling until the temperature reaches 116°C using a sugar thermometer (TIP: this may take longer than you expect, depending on the heat of your hob).
  • Once the mixture has reached 116°C, remove from the heat and using an electric whisk, beat the mixture for around 5 minutes to allow the mixture to thicken.
  • Towards the end of the 5 minutes, add the 200g of white chocolate. It will melt immediately and thicken the mixture further.
  • Immediately add the 300g of smartie mini eggs and quickly fold through the fudge mixture.
  • Pour the fudge mixture into the prepared baking tin and using a spatula, press down firmly and evenly.
  • Now, sprinkle over the remaining 200g of smarties mini eggs and press them into the fudge.
  • Leave the fudge for 4+ hours to set.
  • Finally, once set solid, use a sharp knife to cut into small pieces.

That’s your Easter Fudge prepared and set, ready for you to enjoy this Easter!


Notes:

  • If you want to hurry up the setting process, I’d recommend to set for an hour on the work surface and then transfer into the fridge for the remaining 3 hours.
  • In an airtight container, this fudge should last up to 2 weeks.

You can’t sit there and tell me that this fudge doesn’t have you drooling. You’re lying to me and yourself if you say different.

Jane absolutely killed it with this fudge recipe. I’d go as far as saying it’s the best fudge I’ve tried… ever (and I don’t say that lightly being as I’ve tried many of fudge over the years).

How nice would it be to bag up the fudge pieces and share them with family and friends this Easter? I know I’d be over the moon to receive fudge that is this good! I’d savour every bite.

Let me know in the comments below if you make this fudge yourself and if you do, what your thoughts are on it? Are you a fudge lover? Did this tick the right boxes for you?

Sending you tons of love & hugs as always,

Elle xo
