Rum and Raisin fudge recipe

It's Tuesday which means it's recipe day...

Today I wanted to share with you my rum & raisin fudge recipe. My younger sister mentioned last time she came to stay that she loved rum & raisin fudge, so I made her a batch. A lovely creamy crumbly classic fudge recipe filled with plump raisins high on rum!

I need to make more!

You must use a candy thermometer as making fudge is an exact science.
You can use a heavy based saucepan if you do not have a jug.
Remember the mixture gets very hot, so please take care.

Rum & Raisin fudge

  1. Soak the raisins in the rum for a couple of hours till they are plump.

  2. Line a 20cm (8") square pan with baking parchment

  3. Place the butter, sugar, cream and condensed milk in a heavy based jug

  4. Stir using a wooden spoon over low heat until sugar has dissolved

  5. Now turn up heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally so mixture does not stick to bottom of pan

  6. Place candy thermometer in jug and leave until mixture heats to "soft ball", 240 deg F

  7. Remove from heat and add rum and raisins

  8. Using an electric whisk or food mixer, beat mixture for about 15 minutes until it loses its gloss and starts to lightly crumble

  9. Place mixture into prepared pan and push down so the fudge is an even layer

  10. Leave to set for a few hours

  11. Cut into small squares

  12. Store in airtight container in fridge
