When I saw this recipe the other day, I knew I had to try it. I'm a huge fan of fudge. Unfortunately for me, I don't really enjoy making fudge.
There's this requirement to stand at the stove-top and stir the pot for about 30 minutes that puts me right off the notion. It's a labour of love and very much worth the effort, but really. 30 minutes? Who has the time?
The beauty of the Thermomix however, is that it does the stirring for you. I can cook my fudge and eat it too.
I have been sceptical however, that the TM would get hot enough to create caramelisation. And without the use of a sugar thermometer, how would I know it's at that magical temperature?
But I was wrong. So wonderfully, happily wrong!
Here is the line-up of ingredients:
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 125g butter
- 1 tblsp liquid glucose (available form supermarkets)
- 200g white chocolate, chopped into pieces (or chocolate melts) I used milk chocolate.
- 1/2 x 150g pkt Oreo biscuits broken into pieces. Around 6-7 biscuits.
This fudge will be our Christmas gifts for school/kindy/piano/gymnastics teachers so if you fall into one of those categories, you know what's heading your way!
And because we ate the fudge too quickly I didn't get a photo of it sliced and all fudgey and yummy, so I'm going to borrow the photo from the Thermoblitz site. Ours looked just like this.
Now if you have a Thermomix, go and make this!
