A few weeks ago I featured a recipe inspired by some very old food magazines. Today’s butterscotch fudge recipe is from the same place.

It was such a novel idea that I had to give it a go, and I’m so glad I did! I’ve seen recipes for ‘cheat’s fudge’ before but it’s often made with large amounts of condensed milk and chocolate. This caught my eye because it seemed so easy, and was made up of ingredients you’d have in your cupboard. It makes just enough fudge to fill the bottom of a loaf tin. The ideal amount if you don’t want to give any away but don’t want to have it sitting in your fridge for weeks going stale!

Angel Delight was a pretty standard dessert growing up. It was really easy to make and required nothing more than cold milk and a lot of whisking. Strawberry was my favourite flavour, and I remember we had Wallace and Gromit moulds especially for making Angel Delight in the shapes of their faces! Strawberry Angel Delight in the shape of Wallace (my favourite of the two), plus colourful sprinkles was the unofficial Friday night treat.

This fudge has to be tasted to be believed. It’s so simple, and tastes amazing! It’s really creamy and quite a soft fudge, but it tastes exactly like the sort of fudge you buy on holidays. The butterscotch flavour from the Angel Delight comes through and it’s really unique, but so tasty. I added some white chocolate stars on top to add a bit of extra flavour and make it look a bit more interesting, but that’s optional. You could try adding crunchy sweets like smarties, or adding crumbled biscuits, to make it even more exciting! I’ve yet to try this recipe with other flavoured Angel Delight, but I think the strawberry flavoured one could create a really different type of fudge, and I’m excited to give it a go!

Apart from a few weight conversions and some added extras to the method, this is almost exactly the same as the one I found amongst the old recipes. Discovered on a brown, dog-eared sheet of paper and consisting of just two lines written up on a typewriter, and absolutely nothing else. To the mystery author behind this recipe- all credit goes to you. Thank you for providing me with my new favourite fudge recipe.
