Fudge Block

image

I’m reposting this fudge block after a weekend of birthday parties and morning teas to cater for, it saved my life and to be honest, I made triple quantities.

OK, not the healthiest of treats but oh, so delicious!

Unfortunately, they don’t last long so I use the quantities below which are actually double the original recipe but with hungry boys in the house it’s sometimes to use the more is less mantra!

If you really want a sugar hit, melt 250g milk chocolate and pour this over the cooled fudge block.

Makes 48 fingers.

Ingredients

200g butter

200g caster sugar

450g crushed digestive biscuits

60mls golden syrup

2 x 395g tins of condensed milk

Method

Line a 22x30cm roasting tin with baking parchment.

Weigh the biscuits into a large plastic bag.

Seal the bag and smash the biscuits with a rolling pin, young boys/men are very good at this!

In a large pan warm the butter, sugar, syrup and condensed milk. Stir constantly.

Bring this mixture up to bubbling and stir continuously for 10-15 mins until caramelised.

Add the crushed biscuits and mix well.

Spoon mixture into the prepared tin, smooth out with a palette knife or the back of a spoon.

Set aside to cool.

Once cool cut into fingers.

 

 

 

Scottish Tablet

This is the ultimate sweet treat in my opinion!

What can you not love about a four ingredient recipe that gives you the Scottish equivalent of fudge?

Where as fudge may have a bit of chewy ness to it, tablet crumbles and has a grittiness that makes it divine!

We often make a batch around Christmas to give away and share if friends are round, this year I have also made it for the school cake stall at our local arts festival so fingers crossed it sells well!

I can’t make it sound healthy but it is gluten free and egg free!

A word of warning, don’t be tempted to make more than double this recipe at once, it becomes much harder to beat and get to the graining stage and the chances of being burnt with the bubbling sugar increase dramatically!

Ingredients

900g granulated sugar

200mls water

110g butter

1 x 380g tin condensed milk

Method

Line a baking tray with baking parchment.

In a large pan over a medium heat the water and butter.

Once the butter has melted add the sugar and condensed milk.

Bring up to the boil.

Simmer, stirring constantly,  for 20mins until a caramel colour and thickened.

Take off the heat and beat until the mixture starts to go grainy.

Pour carefully on to the prepared tin.

Allow to cool completely and then break into small pieces and store in an airtight container.
