200g/7oz Butter or Margarine 

480ml/16fl.oz. Water 

2.2kg/5lb Sugar 

450g/1lb Tin Sweet Condensed Milk

Flavouring (Optional - check ingredients label)


1. Place the butter and water in a large saucepan and cook over low heat until the butter has melted. 

2. Add the sugar and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. 

3. When boiling, add the condensed milk, reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking, until the right consistency is achieved (i.e. when a little is dropped into very cold water, it hardens). 

4. Remove from the heat and add the flavouring of your choice (see below) if desired. Beat well for at least 5 minutes then pour into a shallow greased tray, mark the top into squares and allow to set. 

5. Once set and cold, life out and break into bite-size cubes. Wrap in waxed paper to store.

The mixture can be flavoured with vanilla, chopped walnuts, clove, cinnamon, lemon, orange, peppermint or ginger.
