Marie Fudge Recipe

Marie fudge

I have a little home industry baking business, Sula’s Kitchen.  A customer asked me to make Marie Fudge.  I had never tasted let alone made this traditional Afrikaans treat but set about looking for recipes.  I found a few but was not totally happy with the result, after a few tweaks this is the recipe which I now use.  My lovely Afrikaans customer says that it’s the best she’s ever had and orders regularly.



180 g Marie Biscuits (remove biscuits 6 from a 200g packet)

125 g butter

1 egg

250 g Icing sugar

1 TBS cocoa

½ tsp vanilla



  1. Grease a rectangular dish aprrox. 16 cm x 26 cm
  2. Break up the Marie biscuits
  3. Melt butter over a low heat, set it aside to cool for about 10 mins
  4. Beat egg, and add to melted butter, beat
  5. Add icing, cocoa and vanilla to the butter and egg mixture, beat again
  6. Combine the butter mixture with the broken biscuits
  7. Spoon into dish, spread and level with the back of a spoon
  8. Refrigerate
  9. Cut into squares after about an hour in the refrigerator using a knife dipped in boiling water and dried with paper towel.

    • Yes thank you Cat, you did. I just found it a little dry using a full packet of Marie’s so reduced that and changed the method a bit. It’s such a hit
