Chocolate and raisin fudge (1 colour)

I first made this fudge at school and have made it every couple of years since. It's perfect for this time of year.

Cooking chocolate - 115 g
Butter - 55 g
Evaporated milk - 4 tbs
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Golden syrup - 1 tbsp
Icing sugar - 455 g
Raisins - 55 g

1) Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water. Add the evaporated milk, vanilla essence and golden syrup and stir well.
2) Sieve the icing sugar into a large bowl and pour in the melted mixture. Add the raisins and knead well.
3) Press into a 7 inch square greased tin and leave to cool.
4) When set, cut into squares and remove from the tin.


  1. I remember you making that -just make me want some but I've no Evaporated Milk in the cupboard. It's now on the shopping list.

  2. Helen, Scriptor,
    You two make a sweet trail to follow - fabulous fudge - wow!
    I think it would pretty much perfect for any time of year.
    Thank you, McGregor
