Milk Tablet

By PaisleyJade - Wednesday, February 02, 2011

I loooooooooooooooooove fudge, and this fudge is seriously dangerous... dangerously delicious.  

I found this recipe here and for once was able to make proper fudge that set perfectly!  I love the fact that this is a favourite Scottish treat... especially since most of my ancestors come from that far away land.

55g (2oz) butter
250ml (8fl.oz) milk
900g (2lb) granulated sugar
397g can Condensed Milk

Butter and base line a 23cm (9") square cake tin.

In a large pan, melt the butter with the milk. Slowly add the sugar and boil briskly for 4 minutes.

Gradually stir in the condensed milk making sure that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Bring back to the boil and boil for approximately 20 minutes, stirring regularly, until the mixture is thick and a honey caramel colour.

Remove the pan from the heat and beat until set.

Pour into the pan and leave to set fully then remove from the tin and cut into squares.

  8. Oh yum! This Scot definitely loves her fudge and her tablet. Reminds me of coffee mornings, church jumble sales and school sales. Homemade tablet was an ESSENTIAL at all of these kinds of events back home in Scotland.
