Rob and I were in a shop recently and while in the queue to pay for our milk and bread Rob spotted fudge among the sweets. We didn't get any but the night before seeing it I had been reading this month's Easy Food Magazine which had a recipe for fudge in it (which I had bookmarked), so it only seemed right to make some seeing as he was eying it up. The vanilla wasn't part of the original recipe but I wanted to add it in
This was so tasty, Rob was so excited when I told him I was making it.
Makes about 32 pieces
400g tin of condensed milk
450g light brown sugar
2 vanilla pods (seeds removed)
1. Grease an 18cm square tin
2. Place all the ingredients in a large non stick saucepan and gently heat until the sugar dissolves.
3. Bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring continuously until it reaches a temperature of 116˚C.
4. Remove from the heat and beat until the mixture is thick and grainy (about 10 minutes). Pour into the tin and leave to cool. Once cool cut into squares
