Baking Day

When I woke up this morning I immediately knew that I wanted to bake today. I haven't done any baking or making of any yummy things for eight whole months ~ as all my baking things have been packed away pending the sale of our little house.

However, this morning I decided that enough was enough and I rummaged about in my kitchen cupboards looking for suitable alternative baking utensils to use ~ and managed to scrape together enough substitutes.

I fancied something nice and sweet to have with my mid afternoon cup of tea and made some Fudge Slice ~ very yummy, very sweet and very moreish too!

This is a lovely recipe and it is just like eating fudge, but a lot easier to make......

The Ingredients are ~

225g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
225g butter
225g sugar
397g tin of condensed milk
200-250g chocolate ~ use either milk, plain or white, whichever you prefer!

First melt the butter, sugar and condensed milk together in a pan over a low heat until the sugar has completely dissolved.

Then bring the mixture to the boil and boil for 3-5 minutes stirring continuously until the mixture thickens and begins to turn golden. Take extra special care not to burn the mixture or you will get little black bits in your fudge.

Remove from the heat and add your biscuit crumbs. I find that there is something quite satisfying about bashing biscuits into crumbs with a rolling pin ~ it's very theraputic!!

Next pour the mixture into a traybake tin and leave to set. I usually line my tin with tin foil to make it easier to remove. There is nothing worse than having all your hard worked ruined by the refusal of the fudge to come out of the tin and be eaten!

Once the mixture is completely cool, melt your chosen chocolate and spread over the top. Stick the tray into the fridge and once the chocolate has set you can then cut the fudge into small squares.

Finally ~ put the kettle on, make yourself a nice cup of tea, put your feet up and ENJOY............... :O) xx

That looks delish! I have one of those gorgeous bird trays too, it's so happy-making to use every day. Any progress on your house sale? It's such a stressful thing to go through.

Looks yummy.

I've made and decorated 72 cupcakes today for the school's Family Fun Afternoon (sports day lol) tomorrow. Although somehow B and M ate one each so I will actually only be taking 70 to school with me. Oops.

Sounds absolutely delicious!

However, I am actually trying to avoid eating too much sugar at the moment so sadly I'll need to postpone making this until some future date (I know that if I did make it I'd eat far too much of it and would then be ill!).

I have the Ikea tray too, love it!
