Boutique Bake Recipe: Salted Vanilla Fudge

The lovely Catherine from Boutique Bake has been sharing her delicious baking recipes with us (you can check out more Boutique Bake recipes here) and these super easy, made-in-a-jiffy treats are festive delights that everyone will save some room for. 

Here is another recipe in my ‘Edible Christmas Gifts’ series. This is a recipe for classic creamy fudge, which I think most people are big fans of! This version combines, vanilla, sea salt and chocolate chips for a really delicious taste. Once sliced up, the fudge can be placed in a tin or jar with a ribbon and voila the perfect Christmas gift!


  • 397g tin condensed milk
  • 150g light brown sugar
  • 50g butter
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder



  • Line a small rectangular/square dish with some greaseproof paper
  • In a large, non-stick, heavy-based pan, add the condensed milk, butter and light brown sugar.
  • Melt the ingredients over a medium heat, and use a wooden spoon to stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Make sure the sugar does not burn, so ensure you keep stirring!


  • Next, carefully bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Stir it constantly for around ten minutes.
  • Next, take the pan off the heat, and add a good pinch of sea salt


  • Then, using the wooden spoon again, stir the mixture until it begins to firm up a little – for about five minutes.
  • Carefully, pour the mixture into your lined tin
  • Sprinkle over your chocolate chips and another pinch of sea salt


  • Leave the fudge to cool at room temperature for about 4 hours
  • Once completely cooled, chop into pieces using a sharp knife.
  • Place your fudge in a tin or jar, and tie a ribbon around for the perfect Christmas gift!
