A delicious fudge with mincemeat for added Christmas flavour.
  • 397g can condensed milk
  • 150ml milk
  • 450g soft brown sugar
  • 115g butter
  • 2 tablespoons of mincemeat
  • roasted chopped hazelnuts for top (optional)
  1. Place the condensed milk, milk, sugar and butter in a pan.
  2. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring continually.
  3. You can test it is ready either using a sugar thermometer - the mixture should be 118 degrees, or drop a small amount into ice cold water, if it forms a small ball of fudge it is ready.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir through the mincemeat, then beat the mixture for about 10 minutes as it cools and thickens.
  5. Transfer into a tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle over the chopped hazelnuts, patting them gently into the top of the fudge mix.
  6. When cooled, cut into cubes, or leave as a slab.
