Caramelized Apple Cinnamon Fudge...

I'm in the market for some fall-time fudge... 

Caramelized Apple Cinnamon Fudge...

For the caramelized apple
  • 2 sweet apples (I used Jazz apples), peeled cored and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp apple juice (or you use high juice squash)
  • ¼  tsp ground cinnamon + ½ tsp ground cinnamon for decoration

For the fudge
  • 4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 28 Oz. condensed milk 
  • A little over 5 1/2 tbsp (80g) unsalted butter
  • 6 Fl Oz. water
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp apple juice
  • Make the caramelised apples by melting the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, then add the apples. Once most of the butter has absorbed and nearly all the liquid has gone, sprinkle in the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir well. Watch for the juices to thicken and darken then remove from the heat. Leave to cool a little.
  • You’ll need a 9″x9″ square dish to put the fudge in. I used silicone as it was easier to remove the fudge, but if you’re using ceramic or metal, you’ll need to line your dish with grease-proof paper.
  • Make the fudge by melting the butter on low heat in a large saucepan, then turning up the heat to medium/high and adding the rest of the ingredients, stirring constantly. Bring to bring to the boil.
  • Turn the heat down to medium, but keep the mixture boiling, still stirring regularly for 20 minutes. The mixture will darken and thicken.
  • Take the pan off the heat and beat with an electric mixer for 4 minutes. Then add in the caramelized apples and beat for another 3 minutes.
  • Place mixture in your prepared dish and smooth over. Finish by sprinkling cinnamon over the top of the fudge. Place dish on a cooling rack and leave to cool for 10 minutes then slice up the fudge. Leave to cool for at least 3 hours.

I love apple desserts and I have never made fugde, this recipe looks simple and delicious but do you have any tip for a beginner like me?

@betty -Make sure you don't scrape the sides of the saucepan while you're cooking, the hardened mixture that attaches to the the side of the pan will make your fudge a different consistency - this won't happen if you stir constantly while the mixture is boiling but if it does happen, make sure not to scrape the sides of the pan! Good luck = )
