What better gift at Christmas than a homemade box of Mauritian Christmas Fudge with Coconut, Vanilla and Rose? This delicious recipe has been created by 2012 Masterchef winner, Shelina Permalloo and is packed with flavour, from the unrefined golden caster sugar through to the indulgent vanilla extract. This is definitely a recipe that you are going to want to make for your family and friends.


  1. In a medium sized non stick pan over a low heat add the sugar, coconut, milk powder and milk and cook for 8 - 10 minutes stirring constantly. As soon as the mixture starts to stick to the bottom of the pan and forms one homogenous lump remove from heat. Add in the vanilla and rose water and stir through. 

    • 700g Indian Milk Powder (Full Fat)
    • 400ml Milk (Whole)
    • 250g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (we like Billington's)
    • 20g Dessicated Coconut
    • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    • 1 tsp Rose Water
  2. Quickly turn out the mixture into a pre-lined dish and spread out until you get to approx 2cm in height. Flatten out the top of the mixture using the back of a spoon then quickly drop over the pistachios and rose and pat them into the top of the fudge then sprinkle over the chocolate this will melt so you don't need to touch the top after you have added the chocolate.

    • 2 tbsp Dark Chocolate (70%, Finely Chopped)
    • 1 tbsp Pistachios (Chopped)
    • 1 tbsp Rose Petals
  3. Place in the fridge and allow to set for up to 2 hours. 

  4. Cut the fudge into 2cm pieces so they are the same height and width.

  5. Place into sweet boxes or clear bags and choose some festive decorations to design your gifts
