Dreamy clotted cream fudge speckled with crushed Biscoff. This recipe requires just 5 ingredients and couldn’t be any easier to make – customise with your favourite biscuits or confectionery. Homemade fudge would make a delicious edible gift for your family and friends for Christmas or any other celebration!
I love making fudge at Christmas and I really enjoy sharing my fudge recipes on the blog – this Custard Cream Fudge and this Oreo Fudge are just a couple of my favourites I have made so far. This time I’ve swapped the custard creams and Oreos for something a little more festive, and that is spiced biscuits – also known as Biscoff or Speculoos.
On my last fudge recipe one of my readers and fellow food blogger Paola suggested I tried making clotted cream fudge with Speculoos biscuits. Ever since then I’ve been planning to create a spiced biscuit fudge to post on the blog, and I guessed Christmas would be the perfect time to share it.
I’m not even kidding when I tell you how easy this fudge is to prepare. Simply place all the ingredients (apart from the crushed biscuits) in a large saucepan and stir to combine. Now heat gently and bring up to a rapid boil – at this point you need to be extremely careful not the burn yourself as the mixture bubbles. So if children are making this it is advisable to have an adult on hand to help out.
Once the fudge is boiling, leave it be for 3-5 minutes. In this time the fudge will develop a light golden colour – this is the signal to take the fudge off the heat and start beating until matte, and is also the part where the arm workout begins! 😉
After beating well, the fudge will thicken in texture, at this point you will fold in approx. 2/3 of the crushed biscuits into the fudge. I leave some remaining biscuit crumbs to decorate the top as a last finishing touch.
This fudge is very rich, so I find this recipe makes just the right amount to satisfy my sweet tooth! And the negative? There’s only one. It’s way too addictive. I guarantee you once you’ve had one square you won’t be able to stop munching on this incredible fudge!
A quick note: I get a lot of questions from readers asking me what clotted cream is, and what they could use instead of it. Clotted cream (also known as Devon cream) is a thick cream made by indirectly heating milk using steam or a water bath. Once cooked it is left to cool completely. During cooling time the cream content rises to the surface and forms clots. If you can’t find clotted cream where you live, the nearest substitute is double/heavy cream, but you can also make your own clotted cream using this great recipe.
Sweet, crunchy and the perfect little treat! My Biscoff Clotted Cream Fudge is a must try recipe for anyone addicted to Biscoff and fudge!
(Makes approx. 40 squares)
1 x 227g (8 oz) tub clotted cream
275g (9¾ oz) caster sugar (superfine)
100g (3.5 oz) golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
10 Biscoff or Speculoos biscuits, crushed – add more or less to your own taste
- Line a 8 x 8 inch (20 x 20cm) square tin with parchment paper and set aside.
- Place the clotted cream, sugar, golden syrup and vanilla in a large saucepan. Heat gently and stir until all the sugar has dissolved.
- Turn the heat up, and the bring the mixture up to the boil – occasionally stir the fudge to stop it catching. Allow to boil for 3-5 minutes until it’s turned a light golden colour. Then take straight off the heat – you can check the fudge is ready by using a candy thermometer. If it has reached 116°C / 240°F then it’s ready. But if you don’t have a thermometer you can drop a small amount of the mixture into a glass of cold water and if a soft ball forms, then the fudge is ready to take off the heat.
- Using a wooden spoon, continuously beat the fudge for 5-10 minutes until it is really thick and matte.
- Finally fold half the crushed Biscoff/Speculoos biscuits through the fudge. Spread out into the lined tin, and then decorate the top with the fudge with the remaining biscuits – make sure you press them in slightly. Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. Once set cut the fudge into cubes.
The fudge will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 weeks or you can freeze it for up to 3 months if you want to prepare this fudge ahead of time.
Recipe inspired by Rodda’s
- Check the fudge has reached the correct temperature by using a candy thermometer – it should reach 116°C / 240°F when ready. If you don’t own a thermometer, drop a small amount of the boiled fudge mixture into a glass of cold water. If a soft balls forms, then the fudge is ready to take off of the heat.
- Choosing the correct sized tin is important. I find an 8 x 8 inch tin is ideal for this fudge recipe. If your tin is too small, the fudge will not be as thick as it should be and won’t set well.
- Leave the fudge to set for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight for best results.
- If you’re not a fan of Biscoff, you can easily leave them out of the recipe, or even swap for another of your favourite biscuits/cookies or confectionery.
I love the chunks of biscuit in this fudge!
