  1. Grease an 18 cm (7") baking tray.
  2. In a large (see footnote 1 1 below) heavy-based/thick-bottomed pan, add the milk, sugar and butter.
  3. Heat gently, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted.
  4. Bring to the boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring constantly.
  5. When the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage - 116°C (240 ° F) on a sugar thermometer, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  7. Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and it loses its shine.
  8. Pour into the baking tray tin and leave to set at room temperature. Don't refrigerate.
  9. Once it has set, cut the fudge into bite-sized squares and store in an air-tight container.


1 If possible, use a pan at least four times the volume of the mixture; if using a smaller pan, the mixture must be heated more slowly to avoid it boiling over and so will take much longer (30-40 min) to reach the soft-ball stage
