The results were amazing with this recipe and it is so simple and quick to make. The salt really brings out the flavour and the light muscovado sugar, we used Billington’s fair trade, gives it a really rich flavour. Perfect pick me up for long walks, rainy afternoons or a weekend treat. Also a lovely way to show someone you care.
Sea Salted Fudge
One 397g can condensed milk /80g unsalted butter/ 150g soft, light muscovado sugar / pinch sea salt
Combine all the ingredients except the salt in a non stick pan, dissolve together over a medium heat, stirring constantly.
Next bring to the boil, be very careful as the mixture becomes incredibly hot at this stage. Stir the mixture constantly, so it doesn’t stick, for about 10 minutes.
You want to reach soft ball stage, which means when you drop a little of the fudge into a cup of cold water it forms a soft ball. Or if you have a sugar thermometer then it is 113°C.
Once the fudge has reached soft ball stage, take it off the heat.
Add the salt and leave it to rest for 5 minutes before stirring it well for 5 mins.
Pour into a tin lined with greaseproof, smooth down.
You can decorate the fudge too, with all kinds of sprinkles, nuts, chocolate flakes, or even half dip in melted chocolate once it is set and cubed.
Fudge would also be an excellent gift for a Valentine’s gift and I would be very happy for my kids to make me some more for Mother’s Day.
