OK I have been experimenting and getting visibly fatter by the day. So far Tintins Scottish Tablet recipe has been a great find but I struggled to make it smooth whilst keeping the crumbly texture. So five stars from me for flavour and texture but I had to find a way of stopping it taste of sugar and having a granular affect in my mouth (I am sure that is my mistake rather than the recipe – so tell me what I am doing wrong please!)
My next success, after a lot of experimentation was when we tried Carnation’s ultimate fudge which is fanatstic in terms of both flavour and smoothness – BUT it was a bit too soft and squidgy for my critical sons.
I made this batch with Tom and the smoothness I think can be attributed to more condensed milk and regular milk in the recipe and I also used a thicker and wider pan to ensure the sugar dissolved (which it all did – there was no sugary after taste or feel)
A number of people have come back to me saying they have cracked it and have offered up their recipes. A number of people- (and you know who you are!) have just said they have cracked it but have yet to put up their recipe – all promises but lets see you deliver.
I had a meeting with Tony today our chief techy (basically the person who makes everything work on MyDish) and I gave him my latest fudge recipe – thumbs up from him and Mia!
I will keep going to maintain this smoothness but make the fudge a little more crumbly in texture…but I should take a break for a couple of days as I just can’t resist it when it is in the house. I am going to find a new challenge…I just love hunting down the perfect recipe!!!
