Coffee and Macadamia Nut Fudge

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Makes: about 30 squares


A little oil, for greasing

300ml Gold Top Milk

350g caster sugar

100g Gold Top slightly salted butter

2 tsp strong coffee paste

75g macadamia nuts


Grease an 18cm square cake tin and base line with non-stick parchment paper.

Put the Gold Top Milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan.

Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted.

Bring pan to boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time.

When the mixture reaches 115 degrees C on a sugar thermometer or soft-ball stage – when the mixture is dropped into cold water it forms a ball which will not hold its shape.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the coffee paste.

Leave to cool for 5 minutes before adding the macadamia nuts.

Beat the mixture with a wooden spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears.

Pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature.

Do not put in the fridge or a crust will form.

Once set, cut the fudge into small squares and store in a sealed container.

Decoration-  On clear cellophane draw around a large plate to create a circle.

Carefully cut the circle out.

Place the fudge pieces in the centre and gather the cellophane together.

Secure with coloured ribbon and place into the beer glass or mug.

Approximate total cost of gift = £4.25

Cost of recipe ingredients required for gift = £2.53

Cost of ingredients if bought in full = £6.57 (value of ingredients remaining after recipe = £4.96)

Decoration: = from £1.75

Traditional beer glass or mug – from £0.50 from charity shops or car boot sales

Ribbon – from £0.25 Cellophane for wrapping (£1 for 1m square available from florists)

Another great recipe from gold Top Milk. Do you have any good edible Father’s Day gift ideas. Let me know if you make the fudge.

  1. This is sort of like a recipe I tried for Father’s Day, Scottish Tablet (it’s quite like fudge) I will have to try this next.

  2. I must get myself a sugar thermometer and a large pan. I remember my mum making fudge in her preserving pan. I know my Dad would like this. It is handy to have the recipe and a breakdown of the cost too. x
