Oh Fudge!   Leave a comment

Belize fudge is made with sweetened condensed milk. Condensed milk is used a lot in Belizean desserts perhaps because of Belize’s British influence.

Here’s my recipe:

Ingredients:

1 can condensed milk (Carnation or Nestle)

1/3 cup white sugar or brown sugar

1/4  -1/2 tsp of butter or peanut butter

1tsp of evaporated milk or half and half

1 tsp vanilla

½ tsp  nutmeg (optional)

¼ tsp of cinnamon (optional)

½ cup chopped peanuts, almonds, walnuts, pecan or any nuts (optional)

½ cup raisins (optional)

½ cup grated coconut flakes (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Butter or grease a casserole or glass dish or baking dish
  2. Toast nuts in a skillet for 2-3 mins on low fire. Chop toasted nuts and set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan add condensed milk, sugar, butter and evaporated milk to heat stirring continuously for 6-8 minutes until mixture is a pale peanut butter color.
  4. Add vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon.
  5. Add nuts, raisins or coconut (optional) continue stirring until dark peanut butter color.
  6. Remove from heat and spread in greased casserole dish. (Careful it’s very hot)
  7.  Dip pastry knife or butter knife in warm water and cut fudge mixture into squares.
  8. Let it cool and harden before eating. ( Must cool before eating it.)
