However, this morning I decided that enough was enough and I rummaged about in my kitchen cupboards looking for suitable alternative baking utensils to use ~ and managed to scrape together enough substitutes.
I fancied something nice and sweet to have with my mid afternoon cup of tea and made some Fudge Slice ~ very yummy, very sweet and very moreish too!
This is a lovely recipe and it is just like eating fudge, but a lot easier to make......
The Ingredients are ~
225g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
397g tin of condensed milk
200-250g chocolate ~ use either milk, plain or white, whichever you prefer!
First melt the butter, sugar and condensed milk together in a pan over a low heat until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Then bring the mixture to the boil and boil for 3-5 minutes stirring continuously until the mixture thickens and begins to turn golden. Take extra special care not to burn the mixture or you will get little black bits in your fudge.
Remove from the heat and add your biscuit crumbs. I find that there is something quite satisfying about bashing biscuits into crumbs with a rolling pin ~ it's very theraputic!!
Next pour the mixture into a traybake tin and leave to set. I usually line my tin with tin foil to make it easier to remove. There is nothing worse than having all your hard worked ruined by the refusal of the fudge to come out of the tin and be eaten!
Once the mixture is completely cool, melt your chosen chocolate and spread over the top. Stick the tray into the fridge and once the chocolate has set you can then cut the fudge into small squares.
Finally ~ put the kettle on, make yourself a nice cup of tea, put your feet up and ENJOY............... :O) xx
