Take treat time to the next level with this awesome recipe.
Melt the butter in a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat.
Add the milk, 200ml (7fl oz) water, the sugar and vanilla extract and stir with a whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Turn up the heat to simmer and stir constantly for about 3545 minutes. It's ready when it
Reaches 115°C (239°F).
If you have a sugar thermometer, use it as soon as the mixture boils. If you don't have one, test for the soft ball stage (to do this, place a blob – ½ teaspoon or so – into a small bowl of cold water and as it cools, it will form a soft ball).
Pull off the heat and place in a deep oven tray filled with iced water.
Allow to cool to 110C, and then beat with a wooden spoon until thickened.
Scrape into the prepared tin and smooth with a spatula.
Allow to cool and then cut before completely cold.
