Honey and Orange Fudge
Making fudge can be a long painful drawn out process where thermometers are involved and the risk of sugar burns are great. Or you can make it in the microwave in minutes. We prefer this option!
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
â…“ cup of local honey
2 cups of brown sugar
Zest of one orange
Place sweetened condensed milk, honey, brown sugar and butter in a large glass bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes remove from the microwave and carefully stir mixture. Return to microwave for 8 minutes more, stirring every 2 minutes. Allow mixture to cool for 5 minutes
Transfer the mixture to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, add the orange zest and beat for 3-5 minutes, or until fluffy.
Line a square pan with parchment paper and tip in the fudge mix. Level out with a spatula and gently tap the pan on the counter to release any air pockets.
Allow to cool for thoroughly – usually around 3 hours.
Cut into shapes or squares and try very hard to to eat in one go!
