How to make Orkney fudge ice cream

Orkney, with its captivating landscapes, ancient history, and vibrant culture, has a sweet secret – the tantalising taste of Orkney Fudge. This melt-in-your-mouth treat has long been a staple in the Orkney Islands, and at Jollys of Orkney, we're ever eager to share the delights of this traditional sweet with you.

So, what could be better than combining two cherished classics? Ice cream and fudge. Dive into this creamy confection with our irresistible recipe for Orkney Fudge Ice Cream!


  • 500ml double cream
  • 400ml condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g Orkney Fudge, crumbled or chopped into small chunks
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)


  1. Preparation: Before starting, ensure your Orkney Fudge is broken down into smaller, bite-sized pieces. This will allow it to mix seamlessly into the ice cream, offering delightful pockets of flavour in every bite.

  2. Combine the Basics: In a large mixing bowl, combine the double cream and condensed milk. Use an electric mixer or a whisk to beat the mixture until it forms soft peaks. This is the base for our creamy delight.

  3. Infuse with Flavour: Stir in the vanilla extract, ensuring it’s well combined throughout the mixture.

  4. The Star Ingredient: Gently fold in the crumbled Orkney Fudge pieces, ensuring they are evenly distributed. If you’re looking to heighten the taste profile, a pinch of sea salt can add depth and contrast against the sweet notes.

  5. Freezing Time: Pour your creamy concoction into a freezer-safe container, smoothing out the top. Cover with a lid or cling film, then freeze for a minimum of 6 hours, ideally overnight for the best consistency.

  6. Serve and Enjoy: Once set, remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow it to sit for a few minutes to soften slightly. Scoop into bowls or cones and enjoy the heavenly combination of creamy ice cream and the rich, caramel-like flavours of Orkney Fudge.
