  • Place all of the ingredients in a heavy bottomed non stick pan over a low heat until they have all melted together.
  • Bring the mixture to the boil and then simmer for 10-15minutes stirring continuously.
  • 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.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and continue stirring/beating the fudge until it cools down and begins to thicken.
  • 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.
  • Pour the molten fudge into a rectangular pan lined with grease proof paper.
  • Set to one side and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.
