This recipe make approx 500g (1lb)of delicious fudge, it's powerful stuff great for sharing and giving as gifts.
Before you start line a deepish baking tray of at least 7x7 inches with baking parchment (you can use a 2lb loaf tin but i like lots of stuff on top of my fudge!)
Put sugar, butter and evaporated milk in a heavy based pan. Heat gently, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
Bring to the boil, make sure you stir continuously with a wooden spoon. Once boiling reduce the heat and simmer for 5 mins, set a timer for this if your absent minded like me. Keep stirring to prevent it sticking.
After the 5 mins is up remove from heat immediately and add broken chocolate and a third of the maltesers and stir quickly till all the chocolate is melted. (be careful it's very hot at this stage!)
Pour into your baking tin as soon as the chocolate has melted as it will begin to thicken rapidly, generally it spreads it's self out but give the tin a little gentle shake to let the mixture settle and then sprinkle your remaining maltesers and the white chocolate drops over the top.
Chill the whole tray for at least 2 hours (I like to leave it overnight if I can keep my paws off it that long!)
Once chilled cut into square or small bars... it looks great put into jars with a ribbon for presents, I like to cut the wobbly bits off the edge and keep them for myself as chefs perks! Small bars look fab wrapped with cellophane and a big bow.
It's dangerous stuff and a little goes a long way... if you wanted to you could substitute maltesers for fruit and nuts but that would just be wrong!
