HomeChristmas RecipesRich Molasses Fudge Ideal for both a decadent dessert or an edible Christmas gift, this rich molasses fudge never fails to impress. Makes about 36 squares Ingredients 450g Billingtons molasses sugar 200ml double cream 150ml full-fat milk 125g unsalted butter 1 tsp Nielsen-Massey vanilla extract Method 1 Lightly oil a 20cm square cake tin. Place all the ingredients except the vanilla into a large heavy-based pan and heat slowly, stirring until the butter melts and sugar dissolves. 2 Bring the mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat to a rapid simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent it catching (it should read 117C if using a sugar thermometer). 3 Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears. Add the vanilla extract. 4 Carefully pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature. Once set, chop into squares and store in a sealed container. Recipe courtesy of Baking Mad.
