Impressive but surprisingly easy dishes to make
It tastes superbBut it crumblesWhat did we do wrong?How can we fix it with the next lot?Can of evap milk2lbs sugar8oz butter
it's sposed to be crumbly, non? yummy
Crumbly fudge is so much nicer!
So much so that you can't cut squares?It is just a pile of crumbs when it's been cut
More like 'tablet' but further than that even
Sounds like you've made tablet by mistake. I think you've maybe boiled it too long.
Slightly soften some vanilla icecream and stir all those crumbly bits in and then harden up again. Delicious!Apart from that, I've no idea how to solve your fudgey problem, I just eat it, I don't make it, far too dangerous.
Oh, OK, maybe that's a little too crumbly....Get a teaspoon.Cooling it too fast can make it more crumbly - did you put it in the fridge?
Not in the fridgeHmm boil too long - it took forever to get to temp
you've stirred it too vigoroously - that's the difference between fudge and tabletyou have to leave it alone while it boils
Oh - how do I stop it burning if I don't stir?<<Katymac considers buying new pan>>
use a non-stick pan and move it around very gingerly every so oftenbut if you beat it, it will go crumbly
Thinking about it, I stirred the second catch & that isn't crumbly (but it did burn & I turned it chocolate to hide the colour)Only 1 more batch to go (wonder what will go wrong this timme
