I've never made confectionery before johnro, and so I didnt know about the cleaning thing!  Your recipe was my first effort at any kind of confectionery, and it was so easy that I am now inspired to try much more!

That is the amazing thing about the TMX - I have been cooking so many things that I have never had the time or confidence to try before - jams, sauces, chutney, lemon curd etc etc ...  not so good for the hips and thighs!!

I brought a plate of the fudge in to work for our Christmas party - instant hit with everyone. 

Thanks again  :-* :-*

Thanks for this recipe Robyn.  My first batch of fudge and a huge success.  Enough for at least 4 gift packs to friends plus my hairdresser and DD's hamper. Goodness knows how many pieces went into my mouth whilst I was chopping it up :-)) :-))
No trouble washing the bowl immediately, covered the blades with hot water, added a squirt of dishwashing liquid and it was clean in no time.

Since initially posting this after converting for TMX - I have made in excess of 20 batches, with the most recent being for a Mother's Day afternoon today.  A couple of modifications to the initial posting - breaking the biscuits (I do 2 at a time breaking into 6-7 pieces) produces fewer crumbs than chopping with  knife plus you will be able to save some time as there is no longer need to stop and scrape down the bowl during 20 mins cooking time.  All batches have been successful after the 8 min scrape down, after which you only need follow recipe temp / time and wait - perfect each time!!! Happy Mother's day to all!
PS - alterations have been placed on the post of recipe  :)  :)

I made this today and our boys declared it "the best thing Mummy has ever made".  So yummy!!!  It was supposed to go to work on Monday for morning tea but I may need to make another batch tomorrow for that.  Thanks for this fantastic recipe Robyn!!!  :-* :-*

I was probably going to and got side-tracked! Surely I would remember something this good! I can't find the original version to check. Has it been deleted?

Chelsea this was the original thread but after making it so many times I simply changed it with the title 2nd posting - with the exception of the amount of glucose there were no other changes to ingredients, just streamlining of the recipe.  :)  :) Did that make any sense?? xx

Perfect sense!!! :) The recipe works brilliantly so your streamlining has paid off. Hubby isn't a sweet tooth at all and even he is on his third piece!

Thank you for sharing this one... I just made it tonight for my father in law who is in hospital having a knee reco.  I am not a fan of fudge at all but  :o this is devine!  I might have to make another batch just for us, lol. It was sooooo easy.  It could be a whole new business venture this fudge could even be very addicting.  The flavours are endless and the texture I love it.  I think I was put off other fudges because of the texture this one is so smooth.

This I have to try, though admittedly I am much more partial to Tablet Fudge

Sons79 your addictive comments are so true for those who enjoy fudge of any kind - how is 1 piece ever enough! Glad you too enjoyed this!  :)  :) Rob what is tablet fudge as I have made 100s of batches over the years but do not know tablet fudge!  :)  :)
