  • 379 grams can of condensed milk
  • 150 millilitres milk
  • 1 vanilla pod seeds only
  • 450 grams light brown sugar
  • 115 grams butter softened
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a heavy bottomed non stick pan over a low heat until they have all melted together.
  2. Bring the mixture to the boil and then simmer for 10-15minutes stirring continuously.
  3. Keep stirring until the mixture hits soft-ball stage on a sugar thermometer (roughly 118 degrees C) or until the mix sets when dropped into ice cold water.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and continue stirring/beating the fudge until it cools down and begins to thicken.
  5. Do this for roughly 10 minutes. Until it is cool enough to touch, is thick and glossy, but is still runny enough to be poured.
  6. Pour the molten fudge into a rectangular pan lined with grease proof paper.
  7. Set to one side and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
