Milk Fudge - Recipe
This recipe is for those who want to remember the taste of childhood, although milk fudge can be used not only in the form of sweets, but also as a glaze for muffins.
We take a ladle with a long, convenient handle, pour milk into it, pour sugar. We put on the fire, and continuously stirring with a wooden spatula, bring to a boil. When the syrup boils, your main task in the near future is to prevent it from escaping. It is necessary to boil the syrup over low heat, so that the volume is reduced by about half until a light cream color is obtained. If you put a little syrup on ice and a frozen drop can easily be rolled into a soft elastic ball, then the syrup is definitely ready. Now this liquid must be quickly cooled. We put the bucket with syrup in a basin with ice, pour cold water on the ice, constantly stir the syrup. The syrup, cooling, thickens and it becomes more difficult to interfere with it. We take out the bucket from the ice and overcoming the resistance of the milk-sugar mass, we interfere intensively until it starts to lighten and turns into one creamy sugar lump.
In order to get sweets, you need to slightly warm the mass on a small fire until it becomes slightly plastic. Then we lay out future sweets on a sheet of foil with a teaspoon, you can take silicone molds for ice. Pre-lubricate the molds with oil. You can squeeze the mass out of the pastry bag, but take the nozzle with a larger diameter. If you wish, add nuts or candied fruits to milk fudge. In order to cover a cupcake or Easter cake with fudge, it needs to be warmed up harder.
