I have made Tablet several times,and it is very good. A little goes a long way.
You just have to try it to see what I mean.
Every time I have made it, my family devours it.

Tablet is ready to eat when fully cooled.
This Scottish Tablet recipe is pretty straightforward, but it can take a few tries to get it 'just right'. But the good news is that even the 'rejects' usually taste great!
The boiling mixture will be VERY HOT, and can burn you quite badly if it sticks to your skin. Be careful while stirring the mixture, and stand well back as you remove it from the heat towards the end of the recipe.
Tablet hardens quickly once it's removed from the heat, so soak the pan in warm, soapy water as soon as you've emptied its' contents into the baking tray.
Scottish tablet is a delicious fudge-like sweet (candy), that's irresistible if you have a sweet-tooth.
Tablet is tricky to describe as it's not soft like fudge, or chewy like toffee, it's more crumbly and 'sugary' in texture.
