Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking time: 1 hour
 
 

Ingredients

 
  • 800
    g
    castor sugar
  • 250g
    butter
  • 125
    ml
    milk
  • 100
    ml
    Cointreau or Amarula liqueur
  • 1
    can condensed milk
  • pinch of cream of tartar
 
 

Method

 
Heat all the ingredients in a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.

Bring the mixture to the boil, stirring continuously. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 40 minutes or until the mixture reaches soft-ball stage (if you drop a little of the mixture into ice-cold water it will form a soft ball with a fudge-like texture).

Use an electric beater to beat the mixture for three to five minutes, until thick and creamy. (Stop and pour out if the mixture starts to set.) Pour into a greased tin and allow to cool slightly, then cut into small squares.

Tip of the day

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
