The Cutest Christmas Gift – Reindeer Caramel Fudge

Published , Last Updated

Salted Caramel Fudge is one of my most popular recipes on ThermoKitchen. This simple fudge is so quick to make, never fails and is absolutely addictive. Recipients are always pleased to be gifted a tin of fudge. So the idea for making salted caramel fudge as a homemade Christmas gift was a “no-brainer”.  What makes this version of my recipe even better is the cute reindeer caramel fudge packaging.

Last year I gave my Reindeer Caramel Fudge to neighbours and the children’s bus driver. I really enjoy spreading Christmas spirit, so I made some “spares” for the fridge.  These were to give friends that dropped by in the lead up to Christmas.

Don’t forget, your reindeer don’t have to be caramel in colour and flavour. If you prefer If you prefer you could also use this Vanilla Fudge recipe. Making a batch of each would just be crazy cute.

The fudge is made using a round spring-form pan lined with baking paper. Once the fudge was set the sweet was cut into eight wedges. The reindeer caramel fudge was then placed into rectangular clear cellophane bags. I folded back the cellophane sides to get a nice triangular shape and then secured the sides with sticky tape to the back of the reindeer.

The bravest and most patient parents might even consider asking the children to help decorate the reindeer.  Seriously though, the decorating is simple. Just choose some adhesive gems for the nose and some cute googly eyes. I struggled to find adhesive googly eyes as this year this was a “last minute” Christmas gift making exercise. I found regular googly eyes which needed to be stuck on with a hot glue gun.  The Reindeer Caramel fudge is then just finished with a Christmas ribbon around the end.

    These are just the cutest! What a great little gift idea and an awesome activity to do with the kids 🙂

  2. Carmela says:

    Hi. Could I use pancake and waffle syrup instead of golden syrup?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Carmela, I wouldn’t substitute the golden syrup as this is one of the components that helps the fudge to set. Sorry 🙁

  3. Bev says:

    How big is the can of condensed milk please.

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Bev, the condensed milk can is 395g.

  4. Jess says:

    Can you do a double batch at once?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Jess, Sorry…No, the recipe has very specific temperatures the candy needs to hit to work properly. Doubling the batch would change the consistency of the fudge and it probably wouldn’t set. Sorry 🙁

  5. Amanda says:

    Gorgeous! Pinned to “Christmas”… I am thinking you could also do this with brownie as well. Thanks for sharing ????

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      That’s exactly what I planned to do!! I have a chocolate brownie recipe I’m getting ready to add to the website that would be perfect!!

  6. Natarsha Lambie says:

    Hi did you use cellophane bags or pieces of cellophane. These looks great and I am wanting to order bags etc. Ie what size cellophane this would be most helpful.

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Natasha, I just bought pre-made rectangular cellophane bags from the dollar shop. Then I folded the excess behind the fudge and sticky taped it. The bags I got were very long so I trimmed the top once it was secured with a ribbon. Good luck ????????

      1. Natarsha Lambie says:

        Brilliant thank you.

  7. Gill says:

    What size springform tin do you use

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Gill, I used a 24cm springform, although a few cm difference won’t matter, there will just be a slight difference in the thickness of the reindeer.

  8. Jo Lawrence says:

    Hi! I’m just wondering how long they last, would it be too early to start making batches now for Christmas?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      I’m sure these will be fine in the fridge until Christmas 🙂

    Does the gift need to be stored in fridge? I want to include in hampers but prefer not having to keep it in my fridge.

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      I always keep mine in the fridge because it’s hot here in Summer and I don’t want any softening/melting. Having said that, all the ingredients in the fudge are stable at room temperature so there wouldn’t be a spoilage issue.
