Christmas is the time when we all eat ourselves, and for some of us drink ourselves, silly! But hey, there’s no better way to spend the silly season (Christmas Holidays) than eating and drinking with family and friends right?
This one’s straight out of the Edmonds Cook Book, thanks Edmonds, and I use it to sweeten-up all of my work colleagues during the busy weeks leading up to Christmas. Fair to say, it works a treat!
3 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of sweetens condensed milk
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp golden syrup
The key to silky smooth fudge is dissolving the sugar, over a low heat, for approximately 5-10 minutes before bringing the mixture to a slow boil.
Step 1 – Add the sugar and milk to the pan and heat over a low heat for 5-10 minutes.
Step 2- Add the condensed milk, butter, salt and golden syrup. Once the butter has melted, bring the mixture to a slow boil (approx. 10-15 minutes) and be sure to stir the mixture continuously.
Step 3 – Once the mixture has reached the ‘soft ball’ stage, you can test this by dropping a small bit of the mixture into a glass of cold water and it it forms a ball you’re good to go, but I prefer to go by colour. Once the mixture is a rich shade of tan brown, pour the mixture in a 20cm greased tin.
Step 4 – Let the fudge cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes and then cut the fudge (in the tin). This allows for aid of removal, from the tin, once the fudge has been left to cool and fully set (overnight).
Pack into small bags, tie with a ribbon, and share!
