So unbelievably easy and so, so very good! It has quite a sturdy (for want of a better word!) texture, slightly crumbly and melt- in- the- mouth good.
*I know it looks a different colour in each of the photos- one was taken on my phone and the other on my daughter’s camera*
Facebook has a lot to answer for don’t you think?
Reading through a food group I belong to, a member was asking for an easy fudge recipe as she had a tin of condensed milk languishing in the cupboard…
Maureen to the rescue!
Who came up trumps with a microwaveable fudge recipe, using only a few ingredients.
Of course then it was a slippery slide into fudge heaven!
Here’s the recipe, do try it.
And Maureen, thanks for allowing me to share the recipe here.
Maureen’s Microwaveable Fudge
1 tin Nestle condensed milk (MUST be full fat/cream)
500ml castor sugar or 500ml granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon golden syrup
125g Stork margarine (block type)
5ml caramel or vanilla essence
Combine all ingredients except essence in a large deep plastic bowl (glass will crack with the high heat) Microwave on full power (750 watt) for 2 minutes, stir, 5 minutes, stir, 4 minutes, stir then 1 minute and stir. Colour changes when its ready to set to quite a golden brown.
Add essence and beat well, should “sound” grainy.
Pour into greased heatproof tray and leave 10 minutes. Score into squares and leave till set.
Marks out of ten? 9.
Would I make it again? It’s so easy, I’d be mad not to!
Would I do anything differently? Maureen suggested that sometimes she adds chocolate or nuts to hers, I’m definitely going to try that next time.
I used butter instead of stork as that is what I had at home.
