This recipe is nearly as old as Carnation itself! A Scottish favourite similar to fudge but with a delicious crumbly texture.

Milk Tablet
I only ever use this recipe! I love this recipe over time I learnt the most important thing to do is make sure to add the sugar...
Jad200777  

Butter

55g

Semi skimmed milk

250ml

Cane or granulated sugar

900g

You will also need…

20cm square cake tin, lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 3

In a large non-stick pan, melt the butter with the milk. Slowly add the sugar and boil briskly for 4 minutes.

Step 2 of 3

Gradually stir in the condensed milk making sure that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Bring back to the boil for approximately 20 minutes, stirring regularly, until the mixture is thick and a honey caramel colour. Take care while the mixture boils as the tablet will be VERY hot!

To test to see if the tablet is ready drop a small amount into a bowl of ice cold water - if you can pick up some of the mixture and form a soft ball in your fingers its ready.  Just be careful it will still be quite hot!

Step 3 of 3

Remove the pan from the heat leave to cool for 5 minutes, then beat until set. Pour into the tin and leave to set fully then remove from the tin and cut into squares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Wow wow Scottish tablet ❤️ So I can across this and I’m so glad I did! My father in law is Scottish (70 year young ! )d after the many story’s of his granny making this on a huge scale and many lots all for the neighbours in Scotland when he was a boy I decided to make it After the mixed reviews I’m so glad I went ahead No thermometer just following the steps - big pan thou - definitely one thing to remember Follow the receipe sometime less than 20 mins !!! I left mine covered in the garden to cool quicker !! It went too hard - few scrapings off it tastes Amazing I decided to pop in the oven to warm it up and yes it was able to be cut into lovely rustic pieces !! The scrapings would be amazing on top off vanilla buttercream on a cupcake

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple perfection!! I had a spare can if Carnation condensed milk in my cupboard and wanted to do something with it. I searched the website and found this recipe... It was really easy and quick to make. I followed the directions exactly and I'd say it came out pretty much perfect, much to my surprise and delight because I have tried other recipes before and it failed!!! I think I found a new family favourite recipe!!! Very happy with the result.
