Cinnamon Spiced Fudge recipe

This delicately flavoured fudge is an absolute cinch to make. The flavours in the fudge make it ideal for making at Christmas time, but you could quite easily make it at any time during the year. A fantastic way to jazz up this fudge would be adding in 100g of apple sauce before leaving the fudge to set.


  • 360g icing sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 4 tbsp. milk
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.

  2. Place the butter into a microwavable bowl and heat until melted. Cook it on a low heat and in 20 second increments until it is completely melted.

  3. Let it cool slightly, then add the milk and vanilla and stir.

  4. Sift together the icing sugar, cocoa powder and cinnamon into a large bowl.

  5. Pour the butter mixture over the dry ingredients and stir well until you have a smooth mixture.

  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin and leave to one side to cool and set.

Once the fudge has set, cut it into squares. This recipe yields around 24 squares, although you don't have to cut it into squares - try using some fancy cutters and make pretty shapes of fudge, or roll it into little balls.

Cinnamon Spiced Fudge Review by TyLean Polley on 11th January 2013:

It tastes delicious, but the consistency is closer to chocolate frosting than fudge. There is no cinnamon taste at all despite added twice the amount. It's completely masked by the taste of chocolate.

Cinnamon Spiced Fudge Review by Bill Potts on 18th December 2011:

By tradition, I make a batch of fudge for the family at Christmas, and this year, I tried this recipe for a change. It's superbly simple, but not quite perfect. It might be better if the quantity of cinnamon were to be doubled. Also, I put the result into the fridge to help it set - I don't know whether this was essential. Despite this, it didn't set as I would expect a fudge to set. It was perhaps unhelpful that I failed to sift the sugar and cocoa - I used an electric mixer to deal with the worst of the lumps. End result: delicious, but a bit soft.
