Friday’s hygge starts early today with Christmas recipes and homemade fudge—a true Christmas recipe. Fudge is really easy to make. It requires only a few ingredients. Different flavors can be added to the fudge; for example, vanilla, licorice, berry powder, dried cranberries or chopped nuts. This fudge is plain, but is made with white chocolate. You can easily use dark chocolate or milk chocolate if you like. Enjoy!
Fudge (makes about 40 pieces)
300 ml cream
250 g sugar
200 ml simple syrup
2 tsp. salt flakes
100 g butter, cubed
180 g white chocolate, finely chopped
Put the cream, sugar, syrup and salt in a thick-bottomed saucepan and bring it to the boil as you stir it. Boil it until it reaches 124 C. It will take about 25-30 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the butter and white chocolate. Stir well until everything is melted.
Line a 21 x 21 cm mold with baking paper and pour the fudge into the mold. Refrigerate until the fudge has set (about 1-2 hours). Once it has set, cut the fudge into equal pieces and serve. Store the fudge in the refrigerator in an airtight container (it will last for a few weeks in the fridge). Enjoy!
