Creamy vanilla fudge

Yesterday was my nephew Samuel's 3rd birthday, I decided to go hand-made with his gift and made him a fabric wigwam with a floor quilt, matching cushion and bunting! The perfect place for him to indulge in a little home made vanilla fudge...

Tips...
You must use a candy thermometer as making fudge is an exact science
You can use a heavy based saucepan if you do not have a jug
Remember the mixture gets very hot, so please take care

I packaged mine up in a red and white stripe candy bag to match his wigwam accessories

Creamy vanilla fudge

  1. Line a 20cm (8") square pan with baking parchment

  2. Place the butter, sugar, milk and condensed milk in a heavy based jug

  3. Stir using a wooden spoon over low heat until sugar has dissolved

  4. Now turn up heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally so mixture does not stick to bottom of pan
