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

150ml

Milk

4tbsp

Demerara sugar

450g

Butter

115g

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing fudge! I have made this fudge twice now, just to make sure the first time wasn't a fluke! both times it turned out amazingly well. My friends, who have tasted it, are now asking for me to make it for them (I made out that it was really expensive to make and had secret ingredients in)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow wow wow I've tried fudge so many times in the past that I was a bit cynical when I came across this recipe. But oh my word, it was an absolute breeze to make and sooo moreish, I couldn't believe it. The first time I tried was quite messy and my pan ful of fudge didn't look like those in the pictures so I treated myself to a heavy bottomed non stick pan and its turned out to be worth every single penny. I've given it away to friends who always nag me for more so I'm now collecting fancy dishes to fill for Christmas presents. I'm just do glad I found this recipe
