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! 🙂
