Good recipe, some extra tips.. 1) You need to be careful of temperature shown. Soft Ball (i.e. Tablet/Fudges) is 112-116C and Firm Ball (i.e. Caramel) is 118-120C so once you reach 116C reduce the hob temperature to keep it around there, if it creeps up too far then the tablet won't set (a darker colour will also indicate too high a temperature). 2) For lazy people like me I find an Electric whisk works very well (but probably not if you are using a non-stick pan!) 3) Before adding the vanilla essence ensure the temperature has fallen below 100C otherwise it will simply boil off! 4) For an improved vanilla flavour plan ahead, put your sugar in an airtight container with 2 split vanilla pods some weeks (or even months) before you plan to make your tablet. It will improve the richness of the flavour.

Have made this recipe 5 times to fill some fars to send of as xmas presents - my only concern would be that the temperature has to be 240F not C

Try adding a little carnation evaporated milk '2.oz.' To your recipe. It makes the tablet very creamy...wouldn't make tablet without it now...just a little hint '........candie.x

I have tried different Tablet recipes, but this one is by far the best! Absolutely delicious, great texture (not a "hard" set) which to me is the mark of an excellent Tablet. Will definitely be making again! PS I found the mixture at setting point after only 25 mins of rolling boil, I think everyone's hob is different so may give differing time needs. End result - scrumptious!
