Dulce de Leche Polenta Fudge Recipe

Dulce de Leche Polenta Fudge

This is a really low fat or light fudge. 

There are many different types of fudge but usually the ingredients include butter, milk and sugar. This dulce de leche polenta fudge has no butter. Perhaps it should not even be called fudge. Maybe dulce de leche polenta sweet or square is a more accurate name. But that’s another issue.


Butter helps to solidify the fudge and gives it the fudgy texture. In this fudge polenta helps to solidify the fudge. Because the fudge contains no butter it does not have that buttery fudgy texture. It is slightly lighter (less dense) and very slightly chewy. 

In terms of flavor it is great. The polenta carries through the dulce de leche flavor really well. Semolina can be used instead of polenta. The result will not be too different. 

Before I present the recipe, I want to emphasise once again that this is slightly different from a regular fudge. If you are expecting a fudge like texture then you may be disappointed with dulce de leche polenta fudge. However if you are after flavor and a treat that is low in fat this will not disappoint. 

Dulce de Leche Polenta Fudge

Ingredients
50ml sugar
50ml fine polenta or semolina
150ml milk (you may need slightly more, I didn’t)

Directions
  1. Add all the ingredients to a saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil, stirring continuously.
  3. Once the mixture starts boiling, reduce heat to low and continue cooking for about 5 minutes. Continue stirring otherwise the fudge will stick to the bottom of the pan
  4. After about 5 minutes taste a small amount. The polenta should be soft. If its still crunchy continue cooking for another few minutes. Add more milk if necessary
  5. Once cooked, quickly transfer to a tray and let it cool completely before slicing.
