No Bake Caramel Macadamia Fudge

Date :
January 28, 2020

Macadamia nuts are a favourite Aussie snack and are often included in a number of recipes to give them nutty taste.

Fudge is always a special treat this time of year and it can be given as a gift. For a twist on the classic fudge, we’ve gone for a caramel flavouring and have added macadamias for a delightful flavour and texture.

You will love this recipe and it is super easy to make – no baking required which is a welcome relief if you’re experiencing an Aussie heatwave.

Pair some fudge with a May Gibbs Mug and Coaster set or make smaller gifts using the Ecology Ceramic Coasters as a plate, perfect for portion control.


125 grams of butter

397 gram tin of condensed milk

2 tablespoons of golden syrup

220 grams of brown sugar

180 grams of white chocolate block, broken up

120 grams of macadamia nuts


1.    Line a square 20cm x 20cm tin with baking paper.

2.    Break up the white chocolate block, so it is ready to be added when needed.

3.    Melt the butter, golden syrup, condensed milk and brown sugar in a medium sized saucepan and cook over a low heat for approximately 10 minutes. The mixture will start to go a golden brown colour and thicken.

4.    Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the white chocolate pieces. Stir quickly to combine.

5.    Add the macadamia nuts to the mixture and quickly stir as the fudge starts to set after removed from the heat.

6.    Pour the macadamia fudge mixture into your prepared tray. Smooth the surface if needed.

7.    Place in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight to set.

When the fudge is removed from the fridge, leave it on the bench for 10 minutes or so and use a sharp knife to cut into pieces.

It can be stored in the fridge in a container for up to a week…if it lasts that long.
