Milk Fudge Recipe (Jamoncillo De Leche)
This tasty milk fudge recipe only uses 5 ingredients. A Mexican tradition, we add a little food coloring to create a rainbow of treats.
- Serves: 24 persons
- 16-ounce cans condensed milk
- 13-ounce can evaporated goat’s milk (or cow’s milk)
- 6tablespoons butter (unsalted)
- 2teaspoons vanilla extract (pure)
- 2teaspoons cinnamon
- 1pinch of salt
- Decoration: Food coloring
- Optional: Flavorings
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Lightly 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.
Step 3Combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a saucepan.
Step 4Cook 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.
Step 5At 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.
Step 6Pour into the prepared pan and allow to set at room temperature, about 2 hours.
Step 7Cut into rectangles or desired shapes. Based on a recipe from My Sweet Mexico by Fany Gerson (Ten Speed Press, 2010). [ Buy on Amazon ]
