Fudge it with Caramel Rough Fudge

Homemade Fudge
 Totally bad for you!

 But oh so good.

Sometimes we need to have naughty little treats and this 'Caramel Rough Fudge' ticks all those boxes.

Homemade Fudge

I have adapted this recipe to have less sugar and butter than usual, so that kind of makes me feel a bit better when chomping on a piece!

It is also a fabulous homemade gift.

Instead of pouring the mixture to set in a tray, 

just pop spoon fulls into mini cupcake cases.

Box, or place in cellophane to gift.

Homemade Fudge

The recipe calls for white chocolate melts.

Caramel Syrup.

Brown Sugar.

Sweetened Condensed Milk.


White Chocolate Melts.

And butter.

The extra bonus about this recipe is it is super simple to make in a microwave.

The microwave I used was 800 watts.

If yours is more powerful you will need to drop the cooking time by 2 mins at the end.


Melt 100 grams of salted butter.

Add 400 grams of brown sugar,

A 395 gram can of Sweetened condensed milk.

Microwave in 4 increments of 2 minutes.

Stir between each increment.

Add 1/2 cup dry coconut.

And 20 ml of caramel syrup.

Microwave for 4 minutes.

Stir through 290 grams of white chocolate melts.

When melted and smooth spoon into mini cupcake cases.

DIY Fringed Throw

DIY Throw

Isn't is funny what you remember from your childhood.

 Things like pretending builders sawhorses were our ponies, complete with reins and saddles.

And helping mum fray the edges to create a fringe on the homemade fabric doilies and coffee table runners she was making. 

Oh, how I particularly loved to do this.

And that 'fray' memory is what this blog post is all about.

DIY Throw

I purchased 2 x 2.4 metres of cotton fabric from Spotlight online.

DIY Throw

It has a loose weave.

Perfect for fraying.

And that really is the secret.

DIY Throw

The fabric has to have a weave that is not tight.

DIY Throw

As you need to be able to pick with a needle the individual weave strands to pull.

DIY Throw

Mum always stitched by machine about 1 inch from the edge around the entire fabric piece if she frayed all four edges. 

DIY Throw

If she only frayed the top and bottom,

she would roll, iron and stitch a small side seam after fraying was complete.

DIY Throw
So this is my frayed edge DIY fringed throw.

It was fun to make.

And in doing so returned to mind some lovely memories.

With its boho look, this throw is super pretty in the decor too.
