Crumbly fudge is so much nicer!

Katymac Sun 12-Jul-09 12:29:17

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.grin

Cooling it too fast can make it more crumbly - did you put it in the fridge?

Katymac Sun 12-Jul-09 12:48:01

Not in the fridge

Hmm boil too long - it took forever to get to temp

you've stirred it too vigoroously - that's the difference between fudge and tablet

you have to leave it alone while it boils

Katymac Sun 12-Jul-09 16:15:24

Oh - how do I stop it burning if I don't stir?

<<Katymac considers buying new pan>>

Greensleeves Sun 12-Jul-09 16:16:55

use a non-stick pan and move it around very gingerly every so often

but 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
