Cooking With Caramel...

Caramel.
Delicious.
What more do I need to say?
Hazelnuts.
Mmm.
Cheesecake.
Mmm!

I did some serious multitasking and baked/cooked up these delicious treats the other day.

Pecan & Caramel Cheesecake Slice


Caramel Hazelnut Fudge


The fudge was not cooked long enough but it's ok, you can still eat it. You just need a spoon...


Recipe?
Nice and easy one!
Here it is:

Caramel Hazelnut Fudge

Ingredients:

395g can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
125g butter, chopped
2 tablespoons glucose syrup
2 tablespoons golden syrup (I use honey)
180g white chocolate
120g dry-roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped

Directions:
  • Grease a 4cm deep, 19cm (base) square can tin. Line base and sides with baking paper, allowing a 3cm overhang on all sides.
  • Place condensed milk, sugar, butter, glucose syrup and golden syrup in a heavy based saucepan over medium-low heat.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally for 3mins or until combined. Increase heat to medium. Cook, stirring for 10-12mins or until thick and glossy. Add chocolate. Cook, stirring until melted.
  • Working quickly, spread mixture into prepared tin. Level top with a spatula if needed. Stand for 1min then press hazelnuts into top. Set aside for 20mins to cool.
  • Refrigerate overnight, or until set. Lift from pan and using a warm knife, cut in to small squares.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge, between layers of baking paper, for up to one week.
