Really beautiful fudge. My first time making fudge and I can honestly say I will never buy it from the shops again. 

Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur




Demerara sugar




You will also need...

20cm square tin lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 5

Put 100ml of the Baileys liqueur and all the other ingredients into a large non-stick saucepan, reserving 50ml of the liqueur to stir through the cooked fudge at the end (for extra flavour).  Melt everything together over a low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

Step 2 of 5

Bring to a steady boil for 10-15 minutes, stirring continuously and scraping the base of the pan to prevent it from catching. 

The mixture should reach 113-115°C on a sugar thermometer if you have one.  If you don't you can drop a little mixture into a bowl of ice-cold water - if it forms a soft, round ball that doesn't stick to your fingers then it should be ready.

Step 3 of 5

Remove the fudge from the heat and leave to cool for 5 minutes. Add the remaining liqueur and mix thoroughly.

Step 4 of 5

Beat the mixture until it just loses its shine and becomes very thick (this should take about 5-10 minutes).  The longer you beat once it starts to thicken, the crumblier the final fudge will be.  If you like it smooth - beat it only until it comes away from the sides of the pan, so its thick enough to still just about pour into a tin.

Step 5 of 5

Press into the prepared tin with the back of a spoon and leave to set before cutting into squares.

The fudge will keep for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container at room temperature.
