REALLY GOOD VANILLA FUDGE
really good vanilla fudge
- 750g sugar
- 350g double cream
- 250g thick glucose
- 375g white chocolate, cut into chunks
- 62g butter
- 1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract
In a large saucepan, put the sugar, cream and glucose. Slowly bring to the boil on a very low heat. Keeping on a low heat to avoid burning, use a sugar thermometer to bring to the soft boil stage, about 114 degrees. When this is reached, turn off heat, give another gentle stir.
Straight away, in the microwave, melt the chocolate with the butter. Stir thoroughly, and gently stir into the sugar mixture. Also stir in the vanilla, although if making different flavours, this is when to add them.
Pour into a 10 inch by 7 (roughly) baking tray that has been lined with clingfilm. Allow to cool thoroughly, then cut. Delicious!
