Cookie Crumb Caramel Microwave Fudge

Cookie Crumb Caramel Microwave Fudge | Cook Republic

Fudge evokes a memory of a cobbled pathway squirreling down an alley and tucking into a candy shop with a worn out  wrought iron sign hanging above its weathered door. “The Candy Shop” it says. Inside what appears to be a magical shop of big old English glass jars stuffed with colourful lollies and toffees crammed in every inch of space is a big glass canister on the countertop. It is filled to the brim with even golden cubes and as the tiny old lady with bird like features and comical round spectacles pops off the lid and reaches in, the smell of caramel takes over every other smell in the crammed space. “Granny’s Fudge” the hand written scrawl on the glass jar says. And the recipe today might just be that!

COOKIE CRUMB CARAMEL MICROWAVE FUDGE

A beautiful, quick caramel fudge cooked in the microwave and made extra special with a topping of crumbled Oreos.

Preparation Time – 10 Minutes
Cooking Time – 15 Minutes
Makes – 20 squares

 

Ingredients

1 x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
125g butter, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons liquid glucose
1 tablespoon golden syrup
200g white chocolate, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon cream
1/2 cup cookies, crushed and crumbed (I used mini Oreos)

 

Method

Grease a standard 8 inch square cake pan. Line with baking paper, allowing a 2 centimeter overhang on all ends.

Place condensed milk, sugar, butter, glucose and golden syrup in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave uncovered at 70% power capacity (medium to high) for approximately 8 minutes, stirring with a heat safe balloon whisk every 2 minutes.

Microwave uncovered at 70% power capacity for another 6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes with a wooden spoon until mixture is thick, smooth and golden.

Remove from microwave. Stand for 2 minutes until bubbles have simmered down. Add white chocolate. Stir until it melts and the mixture is smooth. Add the cream and stir once again. (If at this point the mixture has started to go brown and curdle, add more cream and whisk until it becomes smooth again).

Pour mixture into prepared pan. Smooth surface, sprinkle cookie crumbs onto the surface and press down gently with a spoon. Stand at room temperature for a couple of hours until firm. If weather is hot, you might need to refrigerate it. Lift onto a board using the baking paper. Cut into squares.

Potato Chip Fudge

Potato Chip Fudge

If you’re like us, you’ve got a weakness for snack food like potato chips and pretzels. And when they’re added to creamy rich fudge, they taste like expensive chocolate-dipped pretzels and chips like the ones we see in fancy candy stores.

Makes: 64 pieces Chilling Time: 4 hr Cooking Time: 10 min

What You’ll Need:

1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 cups coarsely crumbled potato chips

What To Do:

In a medium saucepan, melt chocolate chips over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Be careful not to burn. When chocolate is melted, reduce heat to low and add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla; stir until well blended.

Remove from heat and immediately add crumbled potato chips. Stir gently to blend and pour into an 8-inch square baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Cover and cool in the refrigerator until set.

Notes

We cut these into 1-inch squares because they’re so rich and satisfying.

You can also try a pretzel version: Use 1 cup coarsely crushed pretzels in place of the potato chips.

  • Recipe Description

This is the fudge that you will dream about as you plunge into your New Year’s resolution salads. Chocolate, Nutella and sea salt come together to form a treat that is creamy, sweet, and slightly nutty. Better yet, this recipe comes together in a flash, perfect for the hustle and bustle of the season.

Preparation Instructions

Grease the bottom and sides of an 8- by 8-inch baking pan with butter. Line the pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overlap on the sides.

In a medium glass or stainless steel bowl, stir together sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, bittersweet chocolate chips, Nutella, and butter.

Form a double-boiler by setting the bowl over a medium pot of gently simmering water. The water level should be low enough that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir until the chocolate chips are melted and the mixture is smooth, 5 to 7 minutes.

Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan, spread the top smooth with a spatula, and sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate until the fudge is firm, at least 2 hours.

Once the fudge is chilled, run a knife under hot water, dry it off, and run it around the edges of the pan to loosen the fudge. Using the overhanging parchment paper, lift the fudge out. Peel off the parchment paper. Cut the fudge into 3/4-inch squares. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container or wrapped well in plastic wrap and foil.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, For Greasing Pan
  • 1 can (14 Oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 8 ounces, weight High-quality Bittersweet (60%) Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Nutella (chocolate-hazelnut Spread), Room Temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Room Temperature, Cut Into 1/2-inch Pieces
  • ½ teaspoons (approximately) Sea Salt

Lemon Butter Fudge

Ingredients
4 tbs butter (do not use margarine)
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tbs 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 inch by 2 inch piece lemon zest
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup evaporated milk

Optional Ingredients
1/2 to 1 tsp lemon extract
1/2 cup chopped nuts
4 drops yellow food coloring

Prepare your thermometer by placing it in a glass of hot water so it will be pre-warmed.  Take a 2 quart sauce pan and butter the upper 2/3 of the sides of the inside of the pan.  Fill a glass with water and ice.  Also, fill the sink full of cold water to a depth of 1 1/2 inches.

Grease the inside of a 5X10 inch pan and line with parchment paper in bottom and two opposite sides with overhang.  Place the butter in the freezer.

Place all ingredients in the saucepan with the exception of butter and the list of optional ingredients. Put saucepan over low heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the sugar is dissolved.  The spoon should glide smoothly over the inside bottom of pan with no grittiness.

Increase the heat and let mixture come to a boil.  Use a pastry brush dipping in hot water to wash down the sugar crystals on the inside edges that precede the batter.  Place pre-warmed thermometer in candy and reduce heat but maintain boil.  Once thermometer registers between 236 to 244 degrees Fahrenheit, test by placing a drop in ice water.  It should hold shape until the heat from your fingers start to flatten it and it has a slightly chewy texture.

Once it is at the correct consistency, take saucepan and place in the sink of cold water.  Then drop in frozen butter. Do not stir.  Leave thermometer in candy and wait until it cools down to a temperature of 110 degrees and develops a skin on top.

Pour mixture into food processor, take out zest and add two optional ingredients-the food coloring and lemon extract.  Place the cover over the food processor and leave the feed tube uncovered so steam can escape.   Turn on food processor and run for 3 minutes and let rest for 1 minute.  Repeat this process until the fudge thickens and loses it sheen.  It will become lighter in shade and then stiffen.  For me the true indicator was when the batter did not flow back to the center when the machine was shut off.  It left about a 3/4 inch gap.  This process took about 12 minutes.

Once the right consistency is achieved, mix in the nuts.  Then pour into the prepared pan and let cool.  Once cool, pull on parchment paper to take out of pan and cut into desired shapes.  Then it is ready to serve.  Cover tightly and refrigerate to store.

Tips and Notes:

1. This does give your food processor a work out, it did get very warm.
2. My mom used to serve 1 inch by 1 inch pieces of fudge, these pieces are between 1/2 to 3/4 an inch thick
3. You can use a towel dampened with cold water to place around the outside of the processor bowl to speed up the thickening process of the candy.
4.  I did not take out the zest and let the food processor grind it up to blend into the fudge
5.  Taste batter before opting for the lemon extract, for strength of flavor is a personal preference
6.   I monitored the progression of the candy changes in the consistency by periodically stopping and watching the movement of the batter when machine was of as well as tasting and getting a “mouthfeel” of the texture.
7. Once batter is in pan, it sets up fast, so do not delay in spreading it out.
8. Statement from recipe says”not easily doubled but can be frozen”

 

 

Creamy honey and ginger fudge

Creamy honey and ginger fudge

 

MAKES ABOUT 25-30 SQUARES

INGREDIENTS

  • 450g (1lb) granulated sugar
  • 150ml (5fl oz) honey
  • 75g (3oz) unsalted butter
  • 200ml (7fl oz) evaporated milk
  • 200ml (7fl oz) double cream
  • 5 knobs of stem ginger (from a jar), chopped into small pieces, plus 2tbsp of the syrup

  1. Line a 20cm (8in) square baking tin, 4cm (1 1/2in) deep, with baking parchment. Place the sugar, honey, butter, evaporated milk and cream into a deep, heavy-bottomed pan and gently heat until the sugar has dissolved, stirring with a wooden spoon. This will take about 3-5 minutes.
  2. Now turn up the heat to medium and place a sugar thermometer in the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally so it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. After 15 minutes the mixture should have reached 100C (212F), further 10 minutes until the fudge loses its gloss and goes grainy around the edges.
  3. Pour into the prepared tin. After an hour or so, score the fudge with a knife to create squares. Once set, cut the fudge into rough squares.

6 ounces white chocolate
1 tablespoon peppermint extract

    3. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla.
    4. working quickly pour the mixture into the lined pan(or else it will cool and harden, and when you’re smoothing the top, it’ll start cracking[it will look like its cracking], and it will look strange)
    5. Cool in the refridgerator for at least 45 minutes or until it is completely cold and firm.
    6. To cut it: make sure you use a knife with no ridges, or anything on the blade, other wise the edges of the fudge pieces will look strange.

    Peanut Butter & Caramel Crunch Fudge

     

    Ingredients:

    CHOCOLATE LAYER

    • 12 oz. dark chocolate, about 2 cups
    • 1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
    • 4 oz. peanut butter pretzel bits, about 2 cups

    CARAMEL LAYER

    • 8.5 oz. white chocolate, about 1 1/3 cups
    • 6 oz. sweetened condensed milk
    • 1/3 cup caramel sauce (Click here for the homemade recipe)

    TOPPING

    • 2 oz. peanut butter pretzel bites, chopped

    Directions:

    PREPARATION

    Create a foil sling with a one inch overhang on each side.

    1. Place sweetened condensed milk and dark chocolate in saucepan over medium heat and stir until smooth. Fold in chopped peanut butter pretzel bites. Pour mixture into prepared pan and using an offset spatula spread evenly. Set aside.
    2. Place sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate and caramel in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until smooth. Pour over dark fudge layer and using an offset spatular spread evenly.
    3. Sprinkle remaining chopped peanut butter pretzel bites on top and press gently into caramel layer.

    A few notes:

    • For the chocolate portion I used Ghirardelli’s dark 65% cacao.
    • If you can, for the sweetened condensed milk portion use Borden its a little lighter and less sweet than the Carnation brand.
    • For the caramel portion, I highly recommend using homemade caramel, as it will make a huge difference in flavor – especially, if you take your homemade caramel sauce to the dark amber state as it imparts a deeper flavor beyond just being sweet. For a step-by-step tutorial to making homemade caramel sauce click here for my post.
    • The recipe is highly adaptable, so the chopped peanut butter pretzel sandwiches can easily be swapped to whatever your preference may be.

    Boston Cream Candy

    Penuche

     

     

    You need a candy thermometer for this one.  Also, I hope you like stirring, because there’s going to be a lot of that.  A lot.  Furthermore, if you live at high altitudes, you’ll need to consult someone smarter than me to figure out how to adjust the temperature.  Or just hold off until you move to sea level.  It’s awesome down here.

    • Ingredients:

    4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, plus more for the pan
    2/3 cup chopped pecan pieces
    ¾ tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    2 cups sugar
    Pinch salt
    ½ cup light corn syrup
    ¼ cup half-and-half
    ¼ cup heavy cream

    Directions:

    Butter an 8×8-inch baking pan.  Line the pan with enough parchment paper to hang over the sides.  Butter the paper, too, which will help it stick to the pan.  Have your pecans, baking soda, and vanilla all measured out and ready in their own little bowls by the stove.  Also, have your oven mitts and candy thermometer within arm’s reach.

    In a heavy-based 3 qt. saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, salt, corn syrup, half-and-half, and cream.  Stir with a wooden spoon over low heat until all of the sugar is dissolved.  It takes a while and you can’t really tell by looking at it.  The best thing to do is drag your finger along the spoon and rub the mixture between your fingers.  Yes, it’s hot.  Listen, no one said addiction was going to be easy.  If there’s any graininess at all, keep stirring until it’s gone.

    Once the sugar is dissolved, turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the mixture foams to a boil.  Add the baking soda.  Lower the heat and stir like mad.  Your oven mitts are right there if you need them.  The mixture will double in volume, and then gradually subside and take on a golden hue.  At this point, hook your candy thermometer onto the pot.  Stir over medium-low heat until the temperature just registers 240°F.  It takes a while and will hover at 239°F before jumping up, so pay close attention.  You must remove the pot from the heat before it passes 240°F.

    Okay, so with the pot off the heat, you can take out the candy thermometer so it doesn’t keep getting in the way of the stirring.  Which you need to keep doing, fast.  What you have will look like loose caramel sauce.  Add the vanilla and stir carefully (it may spit).  Add the pecans and continue stirring quickly.  Now, you really have to pay attention, again.  Keep stirring.  I’m serious, if you stop, you’re screwed.  You’ll notice that it seems to be getting thicker and lighter.  Then, it will start to make this squeaky, sticky candy sound.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  You’ll know it when you hear it.  When the spoon starts making a path on the bottom of the pot, you’re almost there.  Yes, keep stirring.

    The moment you notice that the mixture is starting to lose its gloss and turn kind of matte, start pouring into your buttered baking dish.  You’ll have about 15 seconds to debate this with yourself.  If you wait too long to pour, the mixture will get too dry or, worse, harden in the pot.  If you stop stirring too soon, it might not solidify at all, so then you’ll have the best caramel sauce ever, but no fudge.  So, go ahead, make a decision.  I’m sure I’ll hear all about it in the comment section.  Let cool until fudge-like (you can refrigerate it), and cut into squares.

    Root Beer Float Fudge

    root beer fudge

    Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) butter, cubed
    • 2 cups granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup sour cream, not light
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 package (12 oz) white chocolate chips
    • 1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow cream
    • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 tsp root beer flavor

    Preparation:

    1. Prepare an 8×8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

    2. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, sour cream, salt, and butter over medium heat. Stir until the sugar and the butter melt, and insert a candy thermometer. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 234 degrees on the thermometer. This will take approximately 15 minutes.

    3. Once the fudge reaches the proper temperature, keep it on the heat and immediately add the white chocolate chips and the marshmallow cream. Stir constantly until the cream is incorporated and the white chocolate melts, and the mixture is smooth and homogenous.

    4. Remove the fudge from the heat, and stir in the vanilla. Working quickly, pour about a cup and a half of the fudge into a bowl and set aside. Add the root beer flavoring to the remaining fudge in the saucepan, and pour it into the prepared pan.

    5. Quickly pour the reserved white fudge on top of the root beer layer, drizzling it over the whole pan, using a spatula if necessary to scrape it from the bowl. Take a table knife and run it through the fudge in a swirling motion, creating brown and white ribbons of color on the surface. It is important that these steps happen very fast, otherwise the fudge will begin to set and will look grainy and lumpy when swirled.

    6. Allow the fudge to sit at room temperature until set, about 2-3 hours. Remove the fudge from the pan by lifting the foil like handles. Cut into small one-inch squares to serve. Root Beer Float Fudge will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

    Loaded Chocolate Bourbon Fudge

    YIELD: MAKES ONE 8X8 PAN, ABOUT 16-20 PIECES OF FUDGE

    TOTAL TIME: 1 HOUR

    ingredients:

    20 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
    1 (15-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3-4 tablespoons bourbon
    10-12 caramel-filled chocolates/fudge, such as truffles of Ghiradelli squares, chopped
    3/4 cup chocolate toffee pieces, like Heath toffee chips
    1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
    4 ounces milk chocolate, melted

    directions:

    Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray.

    Add semi-sweet chocolate to a double boiler, and melt completely. One melted, remove from heat and slowly add in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract, stirring with a large spatula until mixed. The chocolate will be thick. Begin in stir in bourbon 1 tablespoon at a time – mixture is going to get super thick but slowly stir and just fold the chocolate mixture over until combined. Use the spatula or a large spoon to spread the chocolate in the pan. It will be thick! Don’t worry about the top looking pretty because we are going to cover it up. Just spread it evenly. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to set.

    Melt the milk chocolate and remove the pan from the fridge. Take a few small spoonfuls of the milk chocolate and using the back of a spoon, spread it evenly over the top of the fudge. Immediately cover it with the chopped caramel-filled candies, chocolate chips and chocolate toffee pieces. Take remaining milk chocolate and drizzle it over the top to set some of the loose candy. You can also use any additional sweetened condensed milk that may be left in the bottom of the can and drizzle it over top. Let set in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.

    When ready to cut, fill a large cup with hot water. Dip a sharp knife into the water, then blot on a towel. Use knife to cut fudge into your desired size of squares.

    Note: the melting can also be done in the microwave. I suggest melting the chocolate first on medium power in 30 second increments, stirring after each time. Once melted, add in remaining ingredients and stir until smooth.

    Creme Brulee Fudge: A Tale of Three Fudges

    How much do I love thee reader? A lot apparently, making 3 batches of fudge, in order to find a good, reliable recipe that anyone, anytime could produce. After writing about the delicious Crème Brûlée fudge we had inArrowtown, New Zealand, I had readers asking for a recipe and I was also curious to have some for myself. What I didn’t realise is that the sugary stuff is more temperamental than a macaron. I think I’m a moderately skilled cook but when my first two batches failed I started to get despondent, then angry. I’m sure that alongside 7 stages of grief, there are 7 stages to fudge failure and I can really understand why the word “Fudge!!” is uttered as an expletive to some. Apparently, the weather can affect fudge making and canny experienced fudge makers will not bother to make it if the weather is humid or rainy. And even then there’s no guarantee that it will work. And I am living proof. I even bought myself a sugar thermometer to aid me in my pursuit of Creme Brulee fudge.

    “Patience dear” is an oft repeated phrase around me. I am the most impatient person that I know. For me, it has to happen right now, then then and right there. I often have the Veruca Salt song “I Want It Now” ringing in my ears. One thing that forces patience on me is fudge making. Waiting until all of the sugar has dissolved on a low heat to stirring it constantly instead of running off to check your computer, the waiting for the soft ball stage to materialise-all things that requires a measure of patience that I don’t seem to have.

    1st lot, delicious but unset

    Like Goldilocks (or should I call myself Ravenlocks?), my first batch wasn’t right. With orders to test for soft ball using iced water (which I did, much like when I did it for the marshmallow) and orders to beat it straight away from Nigella the whole thing turned out grainy due to the partial crystallisation of the sugar when I stirred it during the crucial cooling process and it didn’t set properly due to the humid weather although I have to admit, flavour-wise, it tasted great.

    My second lot once I bought the sugar thermometer was creamier, due to waiting for the temperature to drop to 40C which took 1.5 hours. It also didn’t set. And I know people will say that it’s because I didn’t reach the soft ball stage but I disagree, I did as I watched the thermometer like a hawk. This fudge however was gorgeously creamy and ungrainy so had it set, it would have been perfection.

    Gathering myself together I came across a food proof, weather proof and method proof recipe for fudge which involved using marshmallows. It’s easier and quicker and miraculously set pretty much straight away, Even better was that it had a gorgeous creaminess. Flavour-wise I do think I preferred the first two but only by a small amount. The relative ease and reliability of this recipe means that it’s the winner for me.

    I’ve also given you the recipe for the other two fudges should you wish to try them. Perhaps given the right weather where you are and a certain planetary alignment and your astrological moon in the correct position, it may set for you (just consider yourself warned ;) ). In any case, bruleeing the stuff is easy, in fact I don’t know why it isn’t done more often. Just sprinkle with a little sugar (fudge contains enough of the stuff anyway so only a bit is needed) and blowtorch to you heart’s content, being careful not to set the paper or oiled foil on fire. It’s not exactly like the Remarkable Sweet Shop stuff in Arrowtown, New Zealand but it’s fabulously good and will win friends and influence people.

     

    Fudge 1 Grainy fudge

    Ingredients

    • 4 tablespoons water
    • 125 g butter
    • 3 cups caster sugar
    • 2 tablespoons golden or corn syrup
    • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    1. Butter a loaf tin and line with parchment paper and butter parchment paper. Place the water, butter, caster sugar and golden or corn syrup into a heavy-based saucepan and stir over low heat until all the sugar has fully dissolved. Brush down the sides of the pan with cold water to get rid of any stray sugar crystals. Add the condensed milk, bring to the boil on just under medium heat and cook, stirring continuously, for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture reaches a temperature of 283F/118°C on a sugar thermometer.

    2. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside for half an hour*. Stir in the vanilla extract and beat with a wooden spoon until the texture is thick and creamy and a thick ribbon holds when you lift the spoon.

    3. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and cool at room temperature (this may take a few hours).  Cut into squares once fully set and store in an airtight tin, wrapped with waxed paper or baking paper. The fudge will keep for up to four weeks.

    *Wait for 1.5 hours until it reaches 40C /110F and then beat, this will result in a less grainy fudge

    Fudge 2: Creamy Fudge

    • 2 cups sugar
    • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
    • 1/3 cup milk
    • pinch of salt
    • 56g butter
    • 2 tablespoons vanilla

    Directions

    1. Butter sides of heavy 2 quart saucepan and butter and line a loaf tin with parchment and then butter the parchment paper.

    2. In saucepan combine sugar, 2 milks and salt. On low heat stir to dissolve the sugar. Place sugar thermometer in pan and turn to just under medium. Boil whilst stirring constantly to reach the soft ballstage of 238F/118°C (ensure that it gets there).

    With butter and vanilla added, fudge mixture cooling

    3. Remove pan from heat, add butter and vanilla, do not stir at all. Leave untouched for 1.5 hours or so until the temperature shows 110F/40C.

    4. Beta with an electric mixer until it thickens and loses its gloss. Pour into a loaf tin and wait to set.

    Fudge 3: Dreamy, creamy and reliable White Chocolate Fudge

    • 150ml evaporated milk
    • 55grams of butter
    • 2 cups of sugar
    • 200g white marshmallows
    • 350g white chocolate chips

    1. Line a loaf tin with foil and using a pastry brush, brush a flavourless oil (eg rice bran, grapeseed or a mild olive oil) on the base and sides of the foil. In a large heavy based saucepan on low heat, dissolve sugar with milk and butter. Clip the sugar thermometer to the pan Increase heat to just below medium. Whilst stirring wait until the mixture reaches 238F/118°C (soft ball stage). Be patient, it takes about 10 minutes and the thermometer will sit on 220-230 for what seems like forever. You may get little caramelised bits floating to the top. Knock back the heat a little if there are too many.

    2. Remove from heat and immediately stir in chocolate chips and marshmallows. Stir with wooden spoon to smooth out mixture. Immediately place in prepared tin (it sets relatively quickly).

    3. While still in tin but set, sprinkle some sugar on top and blowtorch. Cut into squares when completely set using a lightly oiled knife.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Chocolate espresso, hazelnut and vanilla salt

    If you feel that you are standing here – take a step forward, or even sideways . So I did and that is why I welcome with you on my new blog! Same name popped into my head when I was looking for inspiration in the drawer of spices. Finally the look of your blog, but most of all I am mature enough and a little bit different look at my pictures and text. There continues to be Lazy in the Kitchen , do not close this page and certainly not one I will refer to it in future posts. My fb fans sorry for the confusion and I hope it will remain here with me :-)

    Chocolate and espresso are the two great loves of my life! However, my first post I devote extraordinary combination of fleur de sel with vanilla. I was very curious how it tastes. I have found, and now I know. I suggest you try it, be sure!

    Chocolate espresso, hazelnut and vanilla salt

    Ingredients

    • 350 grams dark chocolate (chopped, minimum 70% cocoa solids)
    • 1 x 397 grams can condensed milk
    • 30 grams butter
    • pinch of salt

    4. Pour and spatch this mixture into a foil tray 23cm / 9 inch square, smoothing the top.
    5. Let the fudge cool, and refrigerate until set. You can then cut it into small pieces approx. 3 x 2.25cm / 1¾ x 1¾ inches. Cutting 8 x 10 / 7 x 7 lines in the tin to give 64 pieces best achieves this.
    6. Once cut, it can be kept in the freezer – no need to thaw just eat straight away.

     

    Dreamy Creamy Gingerbread Fudge: Two Ways

    Fudge Dreamy Creamy Gingerbread Fudge: Two Ways

     

    This fudge is what holiday dreams are made of: sweet, creamy, delicious, unusual, and memorable. Your friends and family will clamor for it every year.

    2 cups sugar (super-fine if you can find it)
    2 cups packed brown sugar
    1 cup heavy cream
    ¼ cup unsulfured molasses
    ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick)

    1 tablespoon vanilla (alcohol type)
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

    Optional (mandatory for me) 
    2 cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts

    1. Get ready: Line the bottom and two opposite sides of an 8-inch by 8-inch baking pan with a sheet of heavy foil. Butter the foil. Fill the sink with ½ inch of cold water. Set the following items next to the stove: cup of hot water, pastry brush, 3 cups of ice water, cup of ice, candy thermometer, and instant-read thermometer.
    2. Clear syrup: In a 3-quart or slightly larger heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, brown sugar, cream, molasses, and butter and set over very low heat to melt. Stir occasionally and do not let the syrup come anywhere close to a boil. Your objective here is to clear (dissolve) the sugar before bringing the syrup to a boil. This should take from 10-15 minutes. But some syrups may take much longer. (Ms. Benning says that the longer you take on this step, the silkier and smoother your fudge. In one of her recipes, she specifies an hour for this process.) Do not proceed to the next step until the syrup is completely smooth and free of sugar crystals.
    3. Wash sides of pan: After the sugar clears, wash down the sides of the pan with a pastry brush dipped into hot water. If you neglect this step, you may end up with crystallized syrup.
    4. Boil syrup: Bring the syrup to a brisk, but not out of control, boil. Make sure that the syrup stays well beneath the upper edge of the pan. Stop stirring. Continue washing the sides of the pan with hot water periodically. Any crystals than form on the sides of the pan jeopardize the creaminess of the syrup. Now begin testing the temperature of the syrup by inserting a candy or instant-read thermometer into the center of the boiling syrup, without letting the thermometer touch the bottom of the pan. You should begin testing for the soft ball stage at about 234°. In my tests, it took 12-15 minutes of controlled boiling to reach this temperature.
    5. Test for soft-ball: To accurately determine if your syrup is at the soft-ball stage, spoon 1 teaspoon or so of the hot syrup into 1 cup of ice water. (Use fresh ice water for each test.) If syrup dissipates immediately or forms a flat mass at the bottom of the cup, it isn’t ready.  However, if the end of the pour remains elevated or protrudes above the water, you need to move fast. Quickly roll the syrup into a ball between your fingers. The syrup ball should not flatten after you remove it from the ice water, unless you squeeze it between your fingers. It should be chewy, not dissolve immediately, in your mouth.
    6. Shock fudge: When the syrup reaches the soft-ball stage, remove it immediately from the heat and set the pan in the sink surrounded by ½-inch cold water.
    7. Seed fudge: Add your “seed” to the fudge, without stirring it in. In this recipe, add the vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and cloves.
    8. Cool fudge: Let the fudge cool in the sink to 110°.
    9. Stir fudge: Remove the pan from the sink when the fudge tests 110°. Begin stirring slowly in a figure eight motion, stopping periodically to allow the fudge to react. The fudge is nearing the finish line when you begin to hear a “snap” as you stir it. The fudge has candied when it become thick, loses its high gloss, becomes streaked with lighter shades, and/or suddenly stiffens.
    10. Add optional ingredients: Quickly stir in the nuts if you are using them.
    11. Cut fudge: After the fudge is completely cool, remove it from the pan, pull off the wax paper, and score the top to create 32, 1-inch by 2-inch pieces. Cut the pieces.
    12. Store fudge: To store, either line a clean pan with plastic wrap, arrange the pieces in the pan, and wrap the entire pan with a couple layers of plastic wrap to store for a couple of days at room temperature, add an additional wrapping of foil to store longer in the frig, or wrap each piece of fudge in wax paper sheets and then put in a metal cookie tin (my preference).

    Fills one, 8- by 8-inch pan; 32, 1- by 2-inch, pieces.

     

    Heavenly Gingerbread Marshmallow Crème Fudge

    You are not going to find a creamier, chewier fudge than one made with Marshmallow Crème. Adding Marshmallow Crème to the sugar syrup incorporates shocking, seeding, and cooling in one easy step. The fudge must, however, be stirred by hand.

    Note Fudge made with Marshmallow Crème does not freeze well.

    1 cup sugar
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    1 cup cream
    ¼ cup unsulfured molasses
    4 tablespoons unsalted butter (½ stick)

    1 tablespoon vanilla (alcohol type)
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
    ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

    One 13-ounce jar Marshmallow Crème

    Optional
    2 cups coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts (mandatory for me)

    1. Proceed with the basic recipe, using the proportion of ingredients specified here.
    2. Skip Steps 5, 6, and 7 and instead, stir the Marshmallow Crème into the hot syrup.
    3. Continue with Steps 8 through 11, noting, however, that this fudge does not lose its gloss.

    Fills one, 8- by 8-inch pan; 32, 1- by 2-inch, pieces.

     

     

     

     

     Homemade Microwave Baileys Fudge

    Homemade Microwave Baileys Fudge

    • Ingredients

    • 14 ounces Condensed Milk
    • 5 ounces Butter
    • 8 1/2 ounces Caster Sugar
    • 8 1/2 ounces Soft Brown Sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
    • 2 tablespoons Baileys

    Directions

    1. Grab the largest microwaveable bowl in the kitchen and add the condensed milk, butter and sugars. No need to mix just ensure that the container is LARGE because the contents are going to bubble up furiously and splattered fudge mix is way not cool to clean off.
    2. For a 900W microwave, cook the mixture on full power for 9 minutes, removing the bowl for stirring every 3 minutes. If your microwave has a lower wattage you’ll need to cook the mixture for longer. Add 1 minute of cooking time for every 50W less power.
    3. Once the cooking time has finished, add in the vanilla extract and Baileys and beat the mixture until it begins to look smooth and glossy.
    4. Transfer the fudge mixture into a 9″ square tin to cool. You can be smart and line the tin with greaseproof paper to prevent sticking or just hook it out crumbled bits and all like I do. Once the mixture has cooled to room temperature, you can pop it in the fridge for a firmer set if required.

     

     

     

    Penuche Fudge

     

    Ingredients:

    • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

    2. Butter sides of a heavy 2-quart saucepan. In saucepan combine sugars, half-and-half or cream, and milk. Cook and stir over medium-high heat till mixture boils. Clip a candy thermometer to side of pan. Reduce heat to medium-low; continue boiling at a moderate, steady rate, stirring frequently, till thermometer registers 236 degree F, soft-ball stage (15 to 20 minutes).

    3. Remove saucepan from heat. Add butter and vanilla, but do not stir. Cool, without stirring, to 110 degree F (about 50 minutes).

    4. Remove thermometer from saucepan. Beat mixture vigorously with a wooden spoon till penuche just begins to thicken. Add nuts. Continue beating till penuche becomes very thick and just starts to lose its gloss (about 10 minutes total).

    5. Immediately spread penuche in the prepared pan. Score into squares while warm. When penuche is firm, use foil to lift it out of pan. Cut penuche into squares. Store tightly covered.

    Makes 1-1/4 pounds (32 pieces).

    Hershey’s Fudge

    Photobucket

     

    Ingredients

    4 1/2 cups sugar
    1 large can unsweetened evaporated milk
    1/2 cup butter
    pinch of salt

    Mix together in a large saucepan and boil on high all of the above ingredients. After you have a good boil going turn the heat down to med-high heat and boil for about 5 minutes and then remove from heat.

    Add the following to the hot mixture:
    2 (7 oz.) bottles Marshmallow Creme to boiling mixture.
    2 1/2 large Hershey Bars (without nuts)
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup chopped walnuts

    Beat together by hand and stir until partially set (very tiring but worth it). Pour mixture into 2 buttered 9×13 baking dishes. Let cool and then cut into small squares. Keep refrigerated.

    **Edit–So, I didn’t realize there were so many different sized Hershey’s candy bars out there. The size you need for the fudge recipe is the 4.4 oz. bar. It is larger than a regular sized candy bar but not their giant sized bar…

    Mexican-Style Burnt Milk Fudge

    IMG_0429

     

     

    One of the sweets I cooked for New Year’s Eve was a Mexican-style fudge called leche quemada which means burnt milk. The mixture of fresh milk and sugar is cooked for more than half an hour while constantly stirring to avoid burning the bottom. I actually burnt mine a little bit which made the candies all the more yummy. Butter, candied fruits and chopped nuts are added after cooking and the candy block is chilled for 8 hours or air-dried overnight on the kitchen counter before cutting into 1-inch squares. I combined the recipes from the December 2008 issue of Saveur magazine called Jamoncillos and fromgourmetsleuth using hazelnuts in place of pecans. Making the candies is labor intensive but it was well worth all the time I spent making them. These tiny candies are so delicious and super addictive. I love the hint of cinnamon and the combination of hazelnuts and pine nuts is perfect.

    Leche Quemada

    Leche Quemada

    3 cups sugar
    2 cups whole milk
    1 cinnamon stick
    ½ cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon salt
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 cup candied fruits, cut into ¼ inch pieces
    1 cup chopped skinned and toasted hazelnuts (or pecans)
    ½ cup chopped toasted pine nuts

    • Butter bottom and all sides of an 8-inch square baking pan, line with parchment paper, butter paper. Set aside.
    • In a large saucepan, stir together sugar, milk, corn syrup, and salt. Add the cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer on medium heat until the mixture thickens and a candy thermometer registers 240 degrees, stirring bottom to prevent burning. This will take about 40 to 45 minutes.
    • Remove pan from heat. Remove and discard cinnamon stick. Add butter and vanilla, do not stir. Let mixture cool to 180 degrees.
    • Stir mixture with wooden spoon until no longer glossy. Add fruits and nuts, stir to combine. Transfer into the prepared baking pan, smooth surface with a rubber spatula. Chill until set, about 8 hours, or leave on the counter overnight.
    • Turn fudge out onto a cutting board and cut into sixty-four 1 inch squares.

    For a little bit of useless information. The word leche (milk) in the Spanish speaking world and in the Philippines is used as a mild oath or an insult, depending on context or inflection. In the Philippines people say the word leche when they are angry, frustrated, surprised, and sometimes as a greeting. If someone says with an angry intonation “ah leche ka”, he/she is annoyed and dismissive, “naku, na-leche na” could mean something went wrong and he’ll be in deep s**t. My mother-in-law told us a “leche” story involving my husband when he was a toddler. She was at home chatting with someone when he started saying mama leche, mama leche, mama leche. The woman she was chatting with asked my MIL why she was allowing her son to disrespect her. My MIL explained that he just got hungry and was simply asking for milk. Both my husband and I have no idea how the benign word leche became a cuss word in the Philippines, Spain, and South America. Anyone knows?:-)

     

     

    Recipe Remix–Toffee Crunch Fudge

     

    After all this talk about microwave candies, I just had to try some out.
    So I went for Vanessa’s 3 minute fudge and put a butterscotch toffee spin on it.
    It really was as easy as it seems, and it really did taste as good as it sounds.
    Dark chocolate infused with bits of crunchy toffee?
    Totally dangerous.
    We both enjoyed it while Lucy was at school.
    Here are the changes I made and a few additional tips to share….

    I grabbed any “chips” I could find in the cupboard, hoping the flavors would just speak to me. Butterscotch? Cinnamon? White choc. chunks?
    My first thought was to break the recipe in two so I could try multiple variations. But I have a tendency to try too much at once, so I reined in the ideas and kept it simple.
    I followed Vanessa’s 3 ingredient recipe using one bag of semi-sweet choc chips and replaced the Andes mints with a bag of Butterscotch chips (you could also use peanut butter chips and it would be heavenly).

    And there’s something magical about sweetened condensed milk. I’d never used it before and thought it would be runnier, like evaporated milk. But it’s so silky rich.
    I placed the mixture in the microwave and decided to be conservative–heating and stirring it in 30-second increments since I’ve had chocolate burn on me in the past. After 3 minutes it was fine and great.
    * If your oven tends to bake hotter than normal, I’d do 30-seconds at a time. Cause if the mixture overcooks, your fudge will be hard and chewy.

    3 minutes produced the yummy photo on the left. It stirred around like a ginormous piece of hot candy, slipping in the bowl and smelling like 10,000 calories. And the flavor combo was tasty too, however…
    * Next time I’ll use 1 1/2 bags of semi-sweet and only 1/2 a bag of butterscotch to get a darker chocolate flavor.
    Then I turned it up a notch by adding an entire bag of Heath Toffee bits, to give it a buttery crunch (it’s so much easier to buy the bag of bits than chopping up chocolate bars on your own).
    * Save 1/4 cup of toffee bits to sprinkle over the top once it’s in the pan.

    As Vanessa recommends, I used a 9×9 baking dish so the fudge would be chunky. Then I placed it in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden.

    And, done!

    Cut the fudge into very small squares–a small bite goes a long way.
    * I let the fudge sit out on the counter for 10 minutes before cutting and it required a bit of strength to cut through, but I think that’s normal of most fudge. I cut one row at a time and carefully slipped my knife around the edges and under the fudge to “pop” the candies out. They didn’t stick in the pan (since there’s so much butter in them) but they do did need a little wiggling to come out.

    And there you go.
    I really, really loved the toffee crunch in these–probably my favorite part. It would also be yummy with nuts, other candies, marshmallows, fruit. So many options.
    I normally take food photos on days when the kids are both at school. But it’s kind of fun when Owen’s around so I can see his reaction to what I’ve just made. His eyes popped as he walked over and saw the mountain of chocolate chunks piled on a white plate.
    “What? Is? That?!”

    We both sampled a few.
    Then I finished cutting the rest of the pan and placed them in double zip-locked bags so they can sit in our fridge without soaking up any fridge smells. I’ll hand them out this week to friends in a small box (with wax paper underneath) or in plastic candy bags.
    Maybe they’ll pass it around the breakfast table too.

     

     

    Lemon Meringue Fudge

    Hand made lemon meringue fudge
    Last year I made Eton mess fudge which went down a treat. So I thought it was high time I made some more! This time I went for a soft creamy lemon meringue fudge…Lemon meringue fudge (makes 24 pieces)Ingredients

    • 2 tbsp lemon curd
    • 75g (3oz) unsalted butter
    • 700g granulated sugar
    • 200ml (7 fl oz) double cream
    • 200ml condensed milk
    • 50g meringue, crumbled

    Cooking instructions

    1. Line a 20cm (8″) square pan with baking parchment
    2. Place the butter, sugar, cream and condensed milk in a heavy based jug
    3. Stir using a wooden spoon over low heat until sugar has dissolved
    4. Now turn up heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally so mixture does not stick to bottom of pan
    5. Place candy thermometer in jug and leave until mixture heats to “soft ball”, 240 deg F
    6. Remove from heat
    7. Using an electric whisk or food mixer, beat mixture for about ten minutes
    8. Add lemon curd and broken meringue and beat mixture for about ten minutes until it loses its gloss
    9. Pour mixture into prepared pan
    10. Leave to set for a few hours
    11. Cut into small squares
    12. Store in airtight container in fridge

    Tips…
    You must use a candy thermometer as making fudge is an exact science
    You can use a heavy based saucepan if you do not have a jug
    Remember the mixture gets very hot, so please take care

     

     

    Scottish Tablet

    This is the most wonderful confection. I remember it fondly from my childhood in Scotland. Not to be confused with fudge which is a little softer and chewier. Scottish tablet will make your fillings scream but oh you will truly want another bit and another and another. It is melt in the mouth heaven. I thank Rita ,who lives away up in the highlands, for this lovely recipe. It is very simple and works so well. Don’t let working with the boiling sugar put you off. Just be careful.Tablet1 kilo/2.2lbs granulated sugar
    Large tin condensed milk – 397gms/14oz
    1 cup of milk
    50g/2ozs butter
    vanilla extract about 1 teaspoon (optional)Put all but the condensed milk in a heavy bottomed pan, and melt really slowly until there are absolutely no grains of sugar left,
    Avoid stirring it vigorously, as you will push grains of sugar up the side of your pan and have gritty tablet.
    If you do get grains up the side of the pan sweep them down with a wet silicone pastry brush.Once it is all melted add the condensed milk and take to a rolling boil,

    Now this varies as to how long it takes. It will change colour to a toffee colour but not too dark.

    Test a drop of the mixture in a glass of cold water it should form a ball when rubbed between your fingers. If you have a sugar thermometer approx 240.F/12o.C .

    Take it off the heat and beat it really well with a wooden spoon, you will feel it thicken as you beat, then pour into 8×10 inch greased swiss roll tin and leave to set.

    Mark it before it is totally cold.
    Now sit back and enjoy that sugary heaven melt in your mouth

    Cadbury Creme Fudge Recipe

    Prince had a birthday this week.  The “now I’m over the hill one”.  The Big 30!
    I made a cake and I wanted to make something extra yummy.
    Last year, around Easter time, I made some Kinda Cadbury Creme Eggs.
    They were a big hit with my husband and girls and I’ve made 2 or 3 (or 7 or 8) batches since then.
    I tried a different spin on it this year.
    With the heat here mine were getting sticky when I was dipping them in the chocolate.
    I was having to put them back in the freezer
     every few minutes to firm them up and it was taking For-e-ver.
    So I did some eggs then I decided to put them in a little pan…and created Cadbury Creme Fudge!
    So much easier.
    My Kinda-Cadbury-Creme-Eggs or Cadbury Creme Fudge
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1/4 cup butter (room temp)
    3 cup powdered sugar
    1/4 t. salt (optional…I didn’t add this)
    12 ounces chocolate chips
    1. Mix together corn syrup and butter
    2.  Mix in powdered sugar
    3. Separate 1/3 into another bowl and dye smaller portion yellow with food coloring
    5. To make fudge…Put wax paper in a small cake pan and sprayed a little cooking spray
    6. Press the white and yellow goodness in the bottom of the pan
    7. Pour melted chocolate chips over the top and keep in the fridge
    8. Eat when the chocolate firms up…or with a spoon right now…(I won’t tell)
    I’d seriously forgotten how lick-your-fingers yummy these are! {slurp}
