Here is an easy recipe for fudge. Get all you ingredients / equipment ready beforehand and make sure you won’t be disturbed for 30 – 45 minutes whilst making this fudge as it needs your constant attention. These fudge are perfect for gifting.

Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups white sugar
4 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 can condensed milk (497g)

Method:
Place all the ingredients in a heavy bottom saucepan. Melt on a low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture begins to boil. Turn up the heat slightly, low – medium, and allow the mixture to cook for 10 minutes, still stirring all the time to prevent it from burning. It will burn very quickly if the heat is too high. Remove the mixture tone it urns to a light caramel colour. Beat until thick. Pour into a square baking tin lined with greaseproof paper or silicone moulds. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares or removing it from the silicone moulds. Serve plain or decorate with melted chocolate. Store in an airtight container. Makes 64 when made in the moulds.

Cook’s tip:
To make caramel fudge substitute the vanilla essence with caramel essence and the condensed milk with caramel.
