Scottish Tablet
(also called Scottish Toffee)

Ingredients:

1 teacup of milk
Large tin of condensed milk
900g of sugar
100g of butter

Melt the butter and sugar. Add the condensed milk and the teacup of milk.

Stir and turn up the heat and keep stirring until it reaches boiling point.

Turn the heat down low and stir for 45 minutes (chair and book optional! )

Remove from the heat and beat 60 times with a wooden spoon. Put a wee bit on a plate and if it sets then it’s ready to be put onto the shallow trays.

Score the tablet surface marking into squares and allow to set and get cold.

Best washed down with Irn Bru! 🙂

5 Minute Chocolate Fudge

by Bec

Ingredients:
3 cups chocolate chips (if you can’t find some good quality chocolate chips, just chop up some chocolate)
14 ounces (400 grams) fat-free sweetened condensed milk
Dash salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (or peppermint extract for Chocolate Mint Fudge)
Optional Mix-ins to personalize your fudge, such as:
For Rocky Road Fudge: 1 1/4 cups miniature marshmallows + 1 cup walnut pieces.
For German Chocolate Cake Fudge: 1 cup flaked or shredded coconut + 1 cup pecan pieces.
For Peppermint Stick Fudge: 1 cup crunched-up candy canes or any hard mint lollies.
For Peanut Butter Fudge: 2/3 cup of peanuts. 1/3 cup of peanut butter
Preparation:
Line a square baking dish with foil.
Add chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and dash salt to a microwave-safe bowl and stir to blend (you can put it in a saucepan to slowly heat it on the stove if you prefer, just don’t let the chocolate burn).
Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave 1 minute more. Stir until chocolate chips are completely melted and a smooth mixture has formed.
Stir in any mix-ins you’re using to personalize your fudge (including vanilla extract) and spoon into prepared baking dish.
Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until firm. Pull foil out of baking dish so you can easily cut fudge into squares (cut about 7 columns vertically, then horizontally).
This fudge is absolutely delicious
