Made this for the first time today. Seems to be setting pretty well but won’t know until tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜. Used castor sugar instead of granulated sugar so didn’t take as long to cook

Iโ€™m going to try this in a Tefal Multicook and Stir where you can change the temperature and it has a blender stirrer with it. Any thoughts on if this would work with same timing?

If it doesn’t ‘set’ (should be quite hard) you can always heat it back up and cook it for a little longer. It works!

I have made tablet for years and used to always use granulated sugar, I was wrong. This is better and faster (to make) with castor sugar

For some comments- I donโ€™t think 10 minutes is long enough to beat it in the end.. It will be like toffee/fudge .. You really have to beat tablet for half an hour -45 mins until your arms practically falling off in order for it to be good. Iโ€™ll give the slow cooker a try though

I made this but it is not hardening, it’s more like toffee, taste is amazing, just wondering how to harden it. I have put it in the fridge then the freezer but still soft. Any suggestions.

Have you ever tried aniseed in fudge. You used to be able to buy squill candy I’m wondering if fudge was a base for that with aniseed. Would it still set

Time you try the slow cooker way then ๐Ÿ˜‰

We have made this for decades the regular way. Standing and stirring for 25 minutes. We also add chopped walnuts in the last 5 minutes as it helps tone down the sweetness

Any suggestions if it doesn’t set hard? Tried fridge and freezer, without any joy. ?
