1 cup Milk
3 cups sugar
2 TBSP Butter
1/4 cup syrup (light)
1/4 cup Bailiey’s and 2 TBSP later
Green Food Coloring
Butter or spray to grease pan
Line pan with foil or grease , can be any size, I use a bread pan because it makes more uniform pieces.
Combine in a 3-quart or larger sauce pan – milk, sugar, syrup, butter, Bailey’s and about 6 drops of green food coloring.
Place on stove, medium heat, stir until it boils
Heat to about 235 F degrees on a candy thermometer – DO NOT STIR
Remove from heat and cool until it reaches 120 F degrees, add 2 TBSP and another 6 drops of food coloring.
Stir or beat, a lot like folding until the gloss is gone. For this recipe it takes about 5 minutes. Pour into greased or lined dish once there is a matte finish. Pour as soon as the gloss begins to go, this is a sign that the fudge is setting. Sometimes my batch sets in the pan. Remember Old fashioned fudge is a bit harder than marshmallow fudge and tends to crumble a bit. It will not lay flat either, part of its appeal is this imperfection.
Once it cools you can slice it and serve.
Makes about 3 lbs. This item makes a wonderful gift and is very rich and creamy. It can be adapted for other seasons or made with other liquors. This is a perfect fudge for spring because it is rich and creamy.
