I am so tempted to give this a go - but I just cannot get used to the idea of sprinkling salt on a confectionary  ???  I don't like the salted caramel maple ice cream as the recipe is, and have to make it with vastly reduced salt.

Does the salt really add something to it ??

I think it does Karen, cuts through the sweetness and salty & sweet do compliment each other...but it is a personal preference though...and not for everyone  :)

Judy, the pic I posted prior was without the golden syrup.  I didn't realise I hadn't added it, until I made the seconds batch (didn't take a photo though).  With the golden syrup added, I noticed it was a lot softer when I went to cut it, and it had a more oily texture, and sweeter.  That's when I figured out what the difference was.
I did use choc melts too, as I thought it would help with setting.

Maddy I agree with your judgement re the best fudge - but also not for all esp DH together with my sister.  I love the salty/sweet combo, I made another batch Boxing Day morn - all demolished now together with white tim tam balls to which I threw in a handful dried cranberries when blitzing - yum

I know where you are coming from AB I made this and the cookies and cream fudge and all disappeared rapidly with DD's help  :D
It's dangerous to have in the house  ;D

Very dangerous. They are all so lovely.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Well just about to make another batch of this delicious fudge for our Easter conference at church - along with the cookies and cream fudge plus some "Naughty Rocky Road" which is DEVINE (Best Recipes website).  I hope I'm strong enough not to eat too much of it before it gets there!!!! :-)) ;D :o

This is still my favourite fudge to date  :-*



I cook the final stage for 22 minutes as Johnro suggests, and do not add the golden syrup.

This is one for the dumb question department:  someone please tell me what Glucose is?  I like the look of the less gooey fudge using glucose as opposed to glucose syrup.  Have glucose syrup in pantry but not sure about the glucose.
In the meantime my waistline is not growing too much while I sort this out.

Deniser you can buy a glucose powder - when I remember I always use glucose syrup.  Maddy that looks so delicious - I just can't have it in the house as I AM addicted no other explanation necessary.  Just finished making easter egg slice form BHG but ised caramello chocolate instead of caramel filled eggs.

Made this with dark chocolate as I realised too late that I didn't have enough white choc. Result is delicious! Didnt add the salt flakes though as the bitterness of the dark choc takes away a bit of the sweetness.
