Dietary Candy Recipe
Light non chocolate Vegetarian Creamy Fudge Squares made with your choice of butter or vegetable shortening.
1/2 stick butter or vegetable margarine
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon water
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Lightly coat a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan using butter or margarine.
Put all the ingredients, (except the vanilla), in a pan. Heat gently until all the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted. Do not let it boil.
Once this has been done, stirring all the time, bring the mixture to the boil.
Continue to boil the mixture for about 10 to 15 minutes. The mixture will begin to thicken. Regularly test to see if the mixture has reached the soft ball stage. Do this by placing a drop of the mixture in some cold water and rolling it between your thumb and forefinger. A soft ball should be formed. (On a sugar thermometer this is 240 degrees.) Once this has been reached remove from heat and allow to cool.
Bring the soy milk and margarine to a simmer over low heat (in a double boiler or in the microwave). Stir Pour the mixture quickly into the prepared pan. Chill for 1 hour then cut into squares.
Add vanilla extract and beat well. Transfer to a greased loaf tin and wait until the fudge has set. Mark for cutting.
