Traditional Scottish Recipes
- Chocolate Fudge

Fudge (and tablet) is a popular form of sweet confection in Scotland - and it sells particularly well in tourist shops. It can have many flavours added to it, from various fruit essences to whisky. The one here uses vanilla but feel free to experiment! Unlike a number of fudge recipes, it does not involve boiling the ingredients.

3 ounces (90g or stick) full fat cream cheese
2 ounces (60g) chocolate, chopped into pieces
10 ounces (275g) sieved icing sugar (frosting)
Salt to taste
Vanilla essence to taste

Beat the cream cheese until it is smooth and then beat in the sieved sugar. Melt the chocolate in a basin over hot water. Allow the chocolate to cool but while still liquid, beat in the cheese and sugar mixture, together with the vanilla essence and salt. Press the mixture into a greased tin (measuring about 6x4) and smooth the top. Chill until smooth enough to cut into rough squares.
