    Eggnog fudge

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes + chilling
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes + chilling

    Makes: 24 squares

    Ingredients

    397g can condensed milk
    450g caster sugar
    120g butter, at room temperature
    125ml whole milk
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/2 vanilla pod, seeds only
    2 tbsp spiced dark rum or cognac 

    Method

    1. Line a 16x20cm tin with baking parchment. Snip into the corners to get neat edges.

    2. Heat all the ingredients in a large saucepan set over a low heat. Once the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved, turn up the heat to high and stir continuously with a wooden spoon for 10 minutes, until the original blonde colour has turned to butterscotch and the bubbles have increased in size. Drag the spoon across the bottom of the pan – if the mixture in the corners is catching, reduce the heat to medium. If the bubbles aren’t getting visibly bigger, increase the temperature slightly. If available, use a sugar thermometer; it should read between 110-120ºC. 

    3. At this point, remove from the heat and beat with a balloon whisk for 5 minutes, until the mixture feels heavy and smooth. 

    4. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to cool on a trivet until at room temperature, then cover and put in the fridge to cool completely. Once fully set, cut into cubes with a sharp knife and transfer to a gift bag.
