Try your hand at this recipe for real condensed milk fudge

1 (385 g) can condensed milk
500 ml (2 cups) sugar
25 ml golden syrup
75 ml water
60 g butter
5 ml vanilla essence

How to
Put sugar and water into a large heavy saucepan.

Stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the butter and syrup and stir until the butter has melted.

Add the condensed milk and stir until it comes to the boil.

Boil very slowly on low heat, stirring every minute or 2, until soft ball stage (the mixture will darken to a deep caramel colour and will start to form sugary crystals on the sides, sounding like sand when you scrape it).

Remove from the stove, add the vanilla and beat it with a wooden spoon for 5-10 minutes until it starts to thicken (beating the fudge will ensure a great texture when completely cooled)

Pour into a greased pan and leave to cool.

Cut into squares when cold.
