Olivia He finally asked to marry me!

Nina What’s it like?

Olivia The question was overwhelming for me. I had to type it into evernote

Nina Let’s read

Olivia Over coffee let’s sit here. This cafe looks nice.

Nina How much is cake?

Olivia 400
Nina Let’s have fudge. This could be the place for your wedding reception

Olivia It’s hard to get to. They are talking about putting lights on the roundabout too. Be nice when it’s finished though.

Nina I live 40 minutes away. Be handy for bridesmaids.

Olivia You never said you live here.

Nina It’s a dump.

Olivia I think I’m going to ask them to stay over anyway

Nina I would

Olivia What’s he going to do kick them out?

Nina Anyway what does this venue cost?

Olivia 2 mill

Nina That’s an awful lot of money to find when you haven’t got it

Olivia We got one mill

Nina If you went to a hotel for it everything would be wrong

Olivia Thank you. I knew you would agree

Nina I am glad we had this chat. You’ve been distant.

Olivia It’s not going to be what we planned.

Nina Of course of course

Olivia But he is spending a ton of money we do not have. Everyone wants to be invited to the ceremony.

Nina They just want free food. They could give them fudge. Fill them up with it. Peanuts and chocolates in it to shut up their mouths.

Olivia I just want to look special and have witnesses to see it. I’ve spent the whole day in shops trying on clothes I will only be wearing to please other people.

Nina You’re freaked out by it.

Olivia Exactly.

Nina It’s one of those things.

Olivia I’m getting married and none of it’s for me.

Nina You definitely want this fudge.

Olivia It has to be right for other people.

Nina I’m just getting a sense of what’s real that’s all. Fudge is really good.  Decorate your cake with it too.

150ml milk

450g demerara sugar

115g butter

397g can Condensed Milk

 

Get ready –

20cm square tin lined with baking paper

 

Method – 

Place the ingredients into a non-stick saucepan and melt over low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves.

While you are stirring the fudge will be HOT so take care!

Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring continuously and scraping the base of the pan.

Test it is ready by dropping a bit of the mixture into a jug of iced water. A soft ball of fudge should form. If you have a sugar thermometer the temperature should be around 118°C.

Remove from the heat and beat the fudge until it is thick and starting to set (about 10 minutes). 
 Sprinkle in nuts or chocolate chips according to your taste.

Pour the mixture into a prepared tin. Leave to cool and then cut into squares.
