    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.
