It's Wicked Wednesday again! On the third Wednesday of every month I share with you a wicked recipe! :) If you are new to ThermoFun make sure you check out my other Wicked Wednesday recipes.
This recipe was inspired from Slow Cooker Central and I tweaked it to be made in the Thermomix.
One of my lovely ThermoFun Club Members asked me in our Funkies facebook group if I could try and convert the recipe. Well it took many, many attempts as each time it just wasn't quite right with the fudge setting properly. I thought I had the recipe perfect and gave it to a few of my members to test for me. They also had troubles with it setting! It got to the point where the recipe was doing my head in but I was determined not to let it beat me as the taste was fantastic! Finally I had success! Phew!!
This irresistible and mouthwatering fudge would be absolutely lovely for Christmas gifts for teachers, bosses or friends and family!
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Warning though it is a little addictive! :)
- 250g Arnotts Butternut Snap Cookies
- 200g condensed milk
- 200g milk chocolate melts
- 200g condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 6 x 15g Cadbury Caramello Koalas
BISCUIT BASE PREPARATION:
- Line a 20cm square cake tin with baking paper.
- Place chocolate into TM bowl and grate 10 sec / speed 9. Set aside for fudge layer.
- Place biscuits into TM bowl and chop 8 sec / speed 10. Scrape down and repeat if not all biscuits are crushed.
- Add condensed milk and heat 1 min / 90°C / speed 4.
- Press mixture into tin and place into fridge while making the fudge.
No need to wash TM bowl.
NB: work quickly as the mixture is sticky! Use your TM spatula to get the majority out and then place bowl back onto TM unit and flick mixture off blades
5 sec / speed 10.
As fudge is sticky, place baking paper over MC to press mixture into the corners of tin. Don’t be too fussy now, as once you remove from fridge it will be easy to flatten the base properly then.
- Place grated chocolate and remaining fudge ingredients into TM bowl and cook
8 mins / 100°C / speed 2. Scrape down and continue cooking 5 mins / Varoma / speed 2.
- Working quickly, pour fudge on top of biscuit base and place back in fridge for a few hours or overnight.
To clean Thermomix bowl:
- Pour a glass of milk into TM bowl and mix 5 sec / speed 8.
- Heat milk 5 mins / 80°C / speed 4.
- Enjoy warm chocolate milk. No wasted chocolate!

The best fudge ever. Lucky I gave most of it away to the grandkids for Christmas.
Pleased to hear you (and grandkids!) enjoyed it Rosemarie! :)
Can you use dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate as we do not like milk chocolate in this family.
yes absolutely Susan! Enjoy! :)
Hi I was wondering do you have to use vanilla bean paste or can you use vanilla extract because vanilla bean paste is so expensive
Yes Danielle vanilla extract is fine to use too! :)
Oh great thankyou for replying ?

Hi. Hope my feedback is considered constructive.
1) What size can of condensed milk? Why not put the quantity?
2) I had to put the base back in the mixer as it was impossible to spread. The Thermomix doesn't get anywhere 90 degrees in a minute. Do you mean heat it to 90 degrees then continue for a minute?
3) What size square pan? Why not share the size? I used a small pan at its no where near the height of your fudge. Did you either you used the smallest square pan known to man, or double the quantities? :).
Hi Karyn, the can of condensed milk is 400g - recipe calls for half a tin and the 200g is in brackets.
No all TM recipes take into account that it takes a while to heat to desired temp and the time suggested factors this in. So 1 minute total is enough assuming that your condensed milk is at room temp.
My square tins are 20cm. No I didn't double the recipe.
Thankyou for your feedback. :)
Have you ever tried making this using a thick caramel sauce rather than the caramello koalas? I usually pass by recipes that require purchased chocolates/candies because I'd rather make it from scratch.
Sorry Beth no I haven't. If you do give it a try with a homemade sauce I'd love you to let us know how it went. :)
I made this today and now I can't walk past the fridge without helping myself to a piece. It really is very yummy. Thank you for another great recipe...and thanks for your dieting rules too! I need them after the amount I have eaten!
Pleased to hear you enjoyed it Annette! :)
If I make my own condensed milk do I jut use half a batch in base and half in topping .
yes Leonie that is correct. However I must admit this fudge I have not yet tried with homemade condensed milk. Every now and then, homemade condensed milk doesn't work with some fudge recipes! No idea why!! If you do try it with this one I'd really appreciate it if you could let us know how it went. Thanks! :)
