James Willis and Erin Molan
Daniella Boutros from Buttercreme Lane gives us the best tips and tricks for Christmas desserts!
And here are some of her recipes!

Fudge Me 

Ingredients & Method

250g butter, chopped

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Line a 7cm x 25cm loaf tin with baking paper.

395g sweetened condensed milk

4 tbsp golden syrup

2 cup brown sugar

Add condensed milk, golden syrup and brown sugar to butter. Stir over low heat until boiling, simmer for 15 minutes, stirring constantly. (Yes this means playing Christmas music & dancing while stirring is a must)

2 cups white chocolate

Remove from heat and stir in white chocolate till well mixed. 

Pour into prepared tin, smoothing over the surface. Allow to cool and refrigerate until firm. Cut into small squares, they are sweet so a little goes a long way.

Daniella’s options for a twist:

As for choices, depending on who you are gifting these yummy fudges to you could add something naughty like Brandy or Baileys (available from Dan Murphy’s) or

cut them in squares and then roll them in coconut or coco powder. For a traditional Christmas taste add a little ground cinnamon & nutmeg, just a 1/2 teaspoon each will do the trick.
