      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Grease or line with baking paper with corners mitred (cuts made towards centre from each corner so paper sits flat in tin) a small ceramic dish rectangle (approx. 15cm x 7cm) or similar.  

  2. Add ingredients into mixing bowl and cook 8 min/Varoma/speed 3.5

  3. Remove MC and replace with simmering basket and cook 12 min/Varoma/speed 1.5.

  4. Add vanilla extract (if using) and mix 2 min 30 sec/speed 4.5 (temp should be approximately 85C by this time).

  5. Insert butterfly and mix 6 min/speed 3.5 and simmer basket on top for first couple of minutes then remove it so you can see the fudge change from being glossy to being matt. The temperature should be coming down to 70 -75C by the time the 6 mins is up and fudge should be thickened

  6. Pour into the prepared tin and allow to cool completely before cutting.

  7. Store in an air tight container in the pantry.


Accessories you need



To make chocolate fudge add 1 tablespoon of dutched cocoa powder in with ingredients at the start.

if you wanted to add chopped nuts, or dried fruit, add these after it has cooled and before you insert the butterfly.
