Step 1: Ingredients!
- 560g (10oz) White Chocolate
- 1 (14 ounce) Can of Condensed milk (the light stuff works too)
- Peppermint flavouring (The Natural stuff is always best)
- 2-4 Candy Canes
- Food colouring, red, green, blue... You know festive colours
- Baking tin
- Tin foil or Baking Parchment
- Summit' heavy like a meat tendorisor or a rolling pin
Step 2: IMPORTANT! No Biological Warfare Please! Scrub Up!
# Remove any rings/ Jewellery that may come in contact with the food
# Wash your hands before you cook
# After handling Eggs, its good practice to wash your hands (Stops the spread of Salmonella and such)
# DO NOT Lick or taste off a spoon THEN put it back into the bowl you took the sample from... EWW... If I wanted your germs I would kiss you!
Before I start sounding like a rambling germ freak, I'm sure you'll agree this is all common sense... But some people just don't ...get... that its not hygienic
Step 3: MMMM Sugary Condensed Goodness
Step 4: Flavour!!
The original recipie I have for this Fudge says that here you should add some crushed candy cane, but personally I don't think it needs it. But your the boss, so do what you think best :)
Step 5: Goop?
Now go and wash that pan.... Or atleast put it into soak... trust me... it will need it. Unfortunatly I used my mothers best new shiney pans... instead of my usual sweet pan... I spent 45 minutes frantically scrubbing off the burnt sugar mark... I'm such an Idiot! hehe
Step 6: Piccaso Would Be Proud
Now... Due to some doggies who knocked me as I was adding in my food colouring, it turned out a little ...er.... too blue... red... and green... but it looked quite pretty in the end.
Ordinarily I would dip my fork into some food colouring and swirl it through the mix in the pan... It *sorta* worked here... but this was mostly damage limitation.
Grr damn dogs
Step 7: Time to Tendorise Some Candy Canes!
don't turn it completly to dust, save some chucnky bits
Now it's time to sprinkle on your candy cane dust equally over your coloured Goop.
I left this in the Refridgerator Overnight (but I would advise leaving for atleast 3 hours before serving) to firm up before I cut into little square peices.
Step 8: Fin!
In all honesty this I'ble has been nothing but a catalogue of disaster and failure... but well I have posted it in the hope that someone else will make something beautiful and tasty to give their loved ones at Christmas.
Meg and Milo have apologised in full and tried to helped try to clean up when I dropped my Fudge... no doubt they'll be back in the New Year hindering my creativity once more
All the best guys and gals!
