Yesterday was Halloween and because we all love fudge more than any other sweet I decided to make some. I also usually make fudge for Christmas gifts, for some reason the men in my life all love fudge more than chocolate – which means we never argue about who gets what.
This recipe is so easy, all you need to be able to do is stir reliably and not not remove yourself from the stool you set beside the stove top.
Makes 36 3cm squares.
- 500ml sugar
- 30ml golden syrup
- 125ml butter
- 1 397gm tin sweetened condensed milk
Grease a 22x22cm baking tin.
Bring a stool and pop it next to your cooker.
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Don’t be tempted to increase the heat at any stage.
Sit on the stool and using a wooden spoon stir CONSTANTLY and evenly for 20 minutes, bring a book or something.
Make sure you stir right to the bottom of the pan to prevent the sugar from sticking and burning.
After 20 minutes when the mix has darkened in colour to a nice fudgey hue, pour into the greased baking tin to set.
Cut into squares when nearly cool.
