Scottish tablet is a very sweet, sugary, fudge-like candy and very easy to make. It is recommended that you use a very large pot, preferably a stock pot because this reaches a rolling boil and has a tendency to boil over if your pan is not large enough. Recipe & photo:

How To Make scottish tablet (fudge)

  • 1
    Melt the butter in a large pot; add sugar and milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. It will take about 45 minutes to thicken and deepen in color.
  • 2
    After it thickens, remove it from and heat and beat it with a wooden spoon very vigourously for 15 minutes. Turn it out into a greased 9x13 pan and mark it into squares with a knife.

    When the fudge is cool but still soft, cut into 1" squares. Store in an airtight container.

    NOTE: If you can't find Demarara sugar in your supermarket, try I'm told theirs is cheaper. Some recipes use caster sugar, and you can make your own by pulsing granulated sugar in the food processor until it is very fine (but don't let it turn to powder).
