This is a delicious Scottish treat.  Almost similar to fudge in America, but lighter and melts in your mouth!

 

Ingredients:

2 lbs (875g) granulated sugar

4 oz (100 g) coconut

3/8 pint (210 ml) milk

1 oz (25 g) butter

Coloring, if desired

 

 

Method:

1.   Heat milk and sugar slowly until sugar has dissolved then add butter and coconut, stirring all the time.

2.   Bring to boil and boil to 240 F degrees or soft ball (either use a sugar thermometer to test or drop a little mixture into a cup of cold water, leave for 1 minute and, if you can, for a soft ball between finger and thumb, the tablet is ready).

3.   Take off heat and beat until thick and beginning to grain.

4.   Quickly pour half into a buttered tray, add a little red coloring to remainder, stir in well then pour over white tablet in tray.

5.   When cool, cut into squares.
