Wow it's been a really busy weekend! Daughter Iona came back from Glasgow early Saturday afternoon then we did a bit shopping and since my Zumba night out was cancelled we just had a nice chillaxed evening. Today Iona had extra cheer practice in the morning followed by carol singing with her performing arts school, lunch out, Christmas shopping and then 3 hours of dancing. I'm exhausted and I was just the taxi!
Ok, my recipe today is another I made for the Children in Need bake sale - Salted Chocolate Fudge! I'm usually a bit wary of making anything like this as another similar experiment trying to make Baileys Fudge in the microwave went horribly wrong lol. Anyway, this recipe from Tesco magazine seemed to be more or less foolproof so I decided to give it a go! I took some to work too and everyone loved it so confectionary success at last!
Salted Chocolate Fudge
Makes 60 cubes
400g milk chocolate, chopped
1 x 397g tin Carnation Caramel
25g salted butter
1/2 tsp sea-salt flakes, crushed
100g icing sugar, sifted
Line a 20x20 cm square tin with non-stick baking paper. Put all the ingredients except for the icing sugar into a pan. Heat gently, stirring often, until the mixture is smooth. Do not allow to boil. Remove from the heat and beat in the icing sugar.
Pour into the prepared tin, level the surface and cool. Chill for at least one hour, or overnight, until set.
Cut into 60 cubes. Keep chilled in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
Ah well back to work again tomorrow, it's been a blast!
Hugs, Shona xx
