  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Lightly butter or grease a 9 by 9-inch square pan. Line the pan with a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil, leaving about a 1-inch overhang on all sides.
  3. Step 3

    Combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a saucepan.
  4. Step 4

    Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon or heatproof spatula until the mixture has thickened and starts pulling away from the sides of the pan, 20 to 30 minutes. The candy should easily slide out of the pan.
  5. Step 5

    At this time, you can add food coloring to the batch if you like. Pink, red, and green are the most popular colors. Be sure to work fast because the fudge will set up fairly quickly.
  6. Step 6

    Pour into the prepared pan and allow to set at room temperature, about 2 hours.
  7. Step 7

    Cut into rectangles or desired shapes. Based on a recipe from My Sweet Mexico by Fany Gerson (Ten Speed Press, 2010). [ Buy on Amazon ]
