You can certainly make it without issues. Golden syrup is sold here, but you don't need it. Glucose is used in professional applications here. The ingredient for home is just corn syrup. The Brits are always trying to find substitutes for corn syrup for candy. You can just replace both the glucose syrup and the golden syrup with corn syrup.

Why don't you make cookies if you're worried about things being sweet?
Or some of that salty sweet pretzel bark concoction everyone loves?
Or if has to be candy, chocolate truffles?
Thanks for the swap suggestions. That would certainly make my life much easier using corn syrup!

I am making five different kinds of cookies and thought fudge might be a nice addition and not too difficult or time consuming to make. I just had forgotten how cloyingly sweet it is until I just recently had some. I know. Duh.
