How to Make Traditional Scottish Tablet

Welcome to What’s Purty! Today we are going to be making traditional Scottish tablet. This sweet treat is similar to fudge, however, it is not chewy and it’s quite crumbly. It’s a favorite among kids and is incredibly sweet, so you only need a small amount.

To make this recipe, you will need two panes of caster sugar, a ton of condensed milk (around 370 grams), a teaspoon of vanilla extract or essence, a pint of whole milk, full-fat milk, and 125 grams of unsalted butter. Be sure to use unsalted butter rather than salted.

To begin, melt your butter in a pan and then add your milk and condensed milk. Once that has warmed up, add your sugar and stir. This is one of those recipes where you really need to keep an eye on it, as there is a high chance of it burning. Keep stirring it to prevent it from burning.

After about 25 minutes, it will begin to caramelize. This is the point where you add your vanilla extract or essence. Continue stirring for another 10 minutes until it’s thick and smooth.

Next, use a mixer to stir the mixture for about five minutes until it thickens. If you don’t have a mixer, a hand blender will work just fine. If you’re interested in purchasing a mixer, there is a great deal available in the description below.

Once the mixture has thickened up, pour it into a dish of your choice and let it set for about an hour. After it has set, cut it up into squares and store it in an airtight container until it’s ready to be eaten.
