FudgeCoffee and Macadamia Nut Fudge

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Makes: about 30 squares

INGREDIENTS:

A little oil, for greasing
300ml Gold Top Milk
350g caster sugar
100g Gold Top slightly salted butter
2 tsp strong coffee paste
75g macadamia nuts

METHOD:

1. Grease an 18cm square cake tin and base line with non-stick parchment paper.

2. Put the Gold Top Milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted.

3. Bring pan to boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time.

4. When the mixture reaches 115C on a sugar thermometer or soft-ball stage – when the mixture is dropped into cold water it forms a ball which will not hold its shape.

5. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the coffee paste. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before adding the macadamia nuts.

6. Beat the mixture with a wooden spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears.

7. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature. Do not put in the fridge or a crust will form.

8. Once set, cut the fudge into small squares and store in a sealed container.

Gold Top milk is now available from Tesco and Asda as well as Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Somerfield, Co-op and Budgens. Visit www.gold-top.co.uk for more information.
