Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Line an 18cm square tin with greaseproof paper.

  • STEP 2

    Put the milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted.

  • STEP 3

    Bring to the boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time. When the mixture rises dramatically take it off the heat, stirring all the time until the mixture goes back down.

  • STEP 4

    When the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (115°C on a temperature probe) remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

  • STEP 5

    Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears. Pour the mixture immediately into the tin and leave to set at room temperature.

  • STEP 6

    Once set, cut the fudge into small pieces and store in a sealed container.
