Time to share my first recipe on the blogg. I will use deciliter measurements for now. Planing to post a blogg on "converting measurements" soon if you want to make this recipe and use amerikan cups.
For this recipe you will need.
- 1,5 dl cream
- 1 dl white syrup
- 25 grams butter
- 2 dl sugar
- 2 dl crushed liqourice candy (I use Tyrkisk Peber)
- 100-200g chocolate
- salt for decotaring
- one tray to mold your fudge
- baking paper
1. Start of you crushing your candy of choice. You don´t need it be be pulverised just crushed up to into smaler pieces so it melts easy.
For this recipe I used one bag of Tyrkisk Peber (150g) I think the liqourics taste is to soft and ill try to and some more flavour the next time.
2. Mix all the ingredince, exepte for the chocolate, in a pan and let it come to a boil on a medium heat until you have a temperature of 123 celsius.
If you dont have a thermometer you can do the "soft ball test" (kulprov)
To do the soft ball test use a glas of water and a spoon. Take some of your mixture and drop in to the glas. If you can form a smal ball out off the mixture your fudge is ready.
(I find that it takes aproximatly 25 minutes. Continue to stir now and again to aviod stickng to your pan. If this happens your stove is on to high.)
3. While your mixture is cooking chop up your chocolate and put your baking paper in your tray.
If you want a chocolatey fudge use 200 grams of chocolate
If you want you fudge to be more of a caramel only use 100 grams
4. When your mixture reaches 123 celsius take your pan of the heat and ad all your chocolate. Stir quickly untill all your chocolate is melted and you get a thick mixture
5. When all the chocolate is melted pour the mixture in your tray and let it sit for 30 seconds before adding your salt.
6. Let the fudge set before you take it out of the tray and cut it in the shape of your like.
