I’ve started getting a little bored of baking (and eating) muffins, cakes, biscuits etc. So I’ve decided to try my hand at making sweets. Admittedly, it is also that Xmas is coming so I can make these and hand then out as simple gifts. I have started with the simplest sweet I could think of, fudge. Be careful with the cooking time, its a bit tricky at first but try it a few times and you’ll get there. The fudge in the picture was a little overcooked, but you get the idea.
- 400g tin condensed milk
- 450g brown sugar
- 150ml milk
- 115g butter
- Grease and line a 20cm square baking tin.
- Heat together the milk, condensed milk, butter and sugar over a low heat in a non-stick saucepan for 10-15 minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan often, until the mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into a glass of cold water.
- Once the mixture reaches this stage, remove it from the heat and beat it for ten minutes until it becomes thick and grainy.
- Pour it into the baking tin and leave it to cool completely before serving.
- Once the fudge is cooled, either cut it into small squares or break it apart with your hands. This recipe will yield around 20 portions of fudge.
