Caramel Fudge/Scottish 'Tablet' Recipe

Last year, my Husband and I were lucky enough to travel the UK for a time. In our meanderings, we came across the most delicious ‘tablet’. Tablet is a super sweet, delectable local recipe found in Scotland. It is tricky to describe, as it’s not soft like fudge, or chewy like toffee, it’s more crumbly and ‘sugary’ in texture. And it just ‘melts in the mouth’. 

It is very similar to the caramel fudge recipe below.

Again, this is not my recipe. A friend gave it to me after I fell in lust with it years ago.



125g butter

395ml condensed milk

1 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

100g white chocolate buttons


Line a square pan with baking paper or alfoil. Set aside.

Place the first 4 ingredients into a saucepan and bring to boil while stirring.

Boil 10 mins stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, stir in white chocolate until melted.

Pour into a pan to set.

Cut when cold.

NOTE: This recipe is also great in the ‘adult’ version where you add Baileys or Tia Maria along with the white chocolate!

  4. Scottish tablet is an extremely sugary candy with a coarse texture, not as hard as hard candy, but not as soft as fudge. It is brittle, delicious and seriously addicting. Embedded in Scottish culture since the early h century, this candy was originally made with sugar and cream, but more modern recipes, like ours, add butter and condensed milk.
