    Found this one:

    Vanilla Fudge




    Makes 1lb


    2 cups Caster sugar
    1/2 pint Evaporated milk
    4 Tablespoons Milk
    4 oz Butter
    1 Vanilla pod split
    Pinch of salt

    Line an 8 x 2 inch high loaf pan with foil, extending the foil over the edges of the pan, butter the foil and then set aside.

    In a saucepan combine the sugar, evaporated milk, milk, and salt.

    Cook and stir over a medium heat until boiling, then lower the heat and stir for 30 minutes.

    Immediately remove saucepan from heat and add the butter and vanilla pod but do not stir.

    Cool mixture, without stirring, to 110 degrees (approx 45 mins)

    Remove the vanilla pod and beat vigorously with a wooden spoon till fudge becomes very thick and just starts to lose its gloss (about 10 minutes total).

    Spread fudge into the loaf pan and score into 1-inch squares while warm.

    Top each square with the optional nuts, if desired.

    When firm, use the foil to lift the fudge out of the pan and cut into squares.

    Store airtight in the refrigerator.


    Hope that's of use.

    Mmmmm....I've made a few batches over the past few weeks to give my sons a taste of good old fashioned sweets, and as a thanks to my mum and dad for babysitting over the school hols. This is the recipe I found on the net, and very delish it was too Think I'll make some more this afternoon, my teeth are tingling at the thought of it

    http://thefoody.com/sweets/fudge.html

    900g (2lb) Sugar
    225g (8oz) Unsalted Butter
    1 large tin Evaporated Milk
    Water (quarter of the volume of Evaporated Milk)
    Vanilla Essence

    Place the sugar, butter, milk, water and vanilla essence into a saucepan.
    Heat gently until the is fully dissolved.
    Rapidly boil the mixture to a temperature of 114 - 118C (238 - 245F) the soft ball stage.
    Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 2 - 3 minutes, then beat rapidly with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens and becomes rough in texture.
    Pour the mixture into a 20cm (8 inch) baking tin, lined with silicon paper.
    Allow to cool a little before marking into squares with a knife.
    Leave in a cool place to set, cut into squares and store in an airtight container.

    OOh, just a word of warning, if you go for the bigger quantities recipe, use your biggest saucepan (and I do mean BIG), it boils up to a massive volume!

    If you don't have a big saucepan, use the lesser quantities (or if you're greedy like me, use two and then combine them once they've boiled to the required consistency and cooled a bit!!).

    I used to make this a lot when I was a teenager - and peppermint creams and toffee. They are some of the easiest sweets to make and sooooo much nicer than bought ones. I think it's the love that goes into making them :rolleyes:

    The recipes sound great and I can't wait to try them out. BTW does anybody know the difference between evaporated milk and condensed milk...or is that a really silly question?

    Condensed milk is quite thick, gloopy and sweetened and evaporated milk, I think is a little less thick and not sweetened.

    The other answer is;

    Lenny Henry likes condensed milk sandwiches but not evaporated milk sandwiches....now I'm showing my age

    Fudge recipie please
    Hi there,

    has anyone got a foolproof fudge recipie for my daughter to try out. She's just polished off some lovely homemade fudge she bought at our local street fair yesterday and wants to try making some herself. By the way she didn't share much of it.

    There's a straight forward recipe Here you might like to try.

    At the bottom of the recipe is a button you can use to convert the measurements from cups to metric.

    we used the valnilla fudge recipie on the great british site in the end,because we had the ingredients. it's yummy, easy and we now feel really sick .possibly cos we added some chocolate to it

    It turned out as good as any of the homemade ones we've bought and we're now thinking about starting up a business. but i don't think we could leave it alone long enough to sell any!!
    Thanks to those who replied

    Recipe for fudge
    I've been looking for a fudge recipe in the lists and I can't find one. I'm sure there must be one there. I would like to try making some for Christmas.

    I've spent the last couple of hours looking at the index of recipes and I've printed lots of them out. They're fantastic and I would like to thank you all for making this such a wonderful site.

    Thank you very much squeaky. I don't know why none of those came up when I put in a search for fudge .... but ah well. Must have done something wrong.

    I see one of those recipes had an ingredient " jar of marshmallow creme". What on earth is that?
