Liquorice fudge is absolutely delicious. It's creamy, sweet, and a bit like soft caramel. And it's fairly easy to make. We've used condensed milk, which you'll find in small tins from companies like Nestlé in most supermarkets. Enjoy!


1. Pour condensed milk, sugar, butter and milk into a pot. Bring to the boil, then let simmer for approx. 12-15 minutes, until it has a thick, syrupy consistency. It's vital that you stir continuously. If you have a meat or candy thermometer, you want it to read 120 degrees.

2. Remove the pot from the heat and pour the mass into a glass or metal bowl. Sift liquorice powder into it, while whisking with an electric whisk for about 10 minutes - until it's thick and tough. It takes some patience!

3. Coat a small baking tin (approx 20 x 20 cm, or whatever you have to hand in a similar size) with baking parchment, and pour in the mass. Pop into the fridge and let cool for about 2 hours.

4. Once the mass has hardened, you can cut it into squares - the size is up to you.

5. YUM, munch away!


Tasks for kids in the kitchen: Let your kids help measure out the ingredients, and do some initial stirring. It gets very hot later, so should be done by an adult. And we reckon they'll be happy to lick the bowl and do some taste testing...
