You need a sugar thermometer to get this just right but close enough is good enough for me. I whip these up as gifts at Christmas and as a special sweet treat throughout the year.


Serves: 16 

  • 500g brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Butter a 20cm square baking dish.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan stir together the brown sugar and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until the temperature reaches between 112 to 116 degrees C with a sugar thermometer or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter, vanilla and walnuts.
  4. Continue to beat with a sturdy spoon until the mixture loses its gloss. Pour into the prepared pan. Score into squares with a knife then set aside until firm; about 5 minutes.
  5. Cut into squares and serve or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
