DIRECTIONS

  • Pour the milk into a medium heavy-based saucepan, with a sugar thermometer attached, and bring slowly to the boil.
  • Add the sugar and butter. Heat slowly, stirring continuously, until the sugar dissolves and the butter melts. Bring to the boil, cover and boil for 2 minutes.
  • Uncover and continue to boil steadily, stirring occasionally, for 15 - 20 minutes, until the temperature reaches the soft ball stage 116°C (235-240°F), when a little of the mixture, dropped into a cup of cold water, forms a soft ball when rolled between finger and thumb.
  • Remove from the heat. Stir in the coffee flavoring (nuts if adding) and leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Beat the fudge until it just begins to lose its gloss and is thick.
  • Transfer to a greased 7 inch square tin.
  • Mark into 50 squares when almost set.
  • When firm and set, cut along the marked lines.
  • Store in an airtight container.
