A delicious homemade recipe ideal for food gifts.
- Vegetable oil for greasing
- 900g granulated sugar
- 225ml whole milk
- 397g tin condensed milk
- 225g unsalted butter
- 2tbsp golden syrup
- 1tsp vanilla essence
Grease 23cm x 33cm Swiss roll tin or similar shallow tin with oil.
Put the sugar and milk in a pan over a medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the condensed milk and the butter, stirring until the butter has melted. Increase the heat and bring to the boil.
Add the golden syrup and boil for about 15 minutes, stirring, until it reaches the soft ball stage (when dropped in cold water, a piece will form a soft ball), or 115°C on a sugar thermometer. Remove from the heat, then beat in the vanilla.
Beat the fudge with a wooden spoon for about 10 minutes until it starts to thicken and set around the edges, then pour into the tin and leave to cool.
Once cool, cut into 1.5cm squares with a sharp knife and store for later, or pack in tissue paper-lined boxes or in cellophane bags as gifts.
