Kids in the Kitchen – Fudge

Welcome to this weeks Kids in the Kitchen and it’s the last one of the month. We love it when you join in and let us know what you’ve been up to in the kitchen with your kids. This week we made some fudge, but before I get on to our recipe I’d like to say thank you to those who linked up last week.

The girls from Mummy Plus Two Girls made a fantastic pizza with a smiley face. Kids always have loads of fun making pizza.

Over on Mummy of Two little Miss A made some Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle Cakes which look totally scrummy.

The linky is open for another week before we start a new one, so do come and join us and I’ll share your posts on Pinterest, Twitter and here on Kids in the Kitchen next week.


Now this recipe is not entirely child friendly as it involves boiling a sugary liquid which will stick and burn. However, I found that if I did the hot part myself, there was plenty for my little chef to help with afterwards and she was really excited to be making her own sweets.


  • 397g can of condensed milk
  • 150ml of milk
  • 450g caster sugar
  • 115g butter


Put all the ingredients in a pan and melt slowly over a low heat
Bring to the boil and then simmer on medium heat stirring constantly so it doesn’t stick
Simmer for around 15 -20 minutes until the mixture reaches 118°C

You can check the temperature with a sugar thermometer or test the mixture by dropping a small ball into a glass of icy water and it should form a soft ball when squished.

Leave to cool for about 5 minutes.


Prepare a tin by lining it with greaseproof paper
Mix with hand mixer in the pan for about 5 minutes until thick, smooth and starting to set.
Poor mixture into tin and smooth the top
Leave to cool and set
Cut into chunks

So now it’s over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you’ve cooked,

I’d also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
