Not sure what you did wrong Clare but this is the recipe i use and it always works................Good luck...



Makes: 450g


Preparation time: 20 minutes, plus cooling



350g granulated sugar

150ml milk

50ml cream

50g butter

1 tbsp cocoa powder

25g ready-made fondant icing



Put all the ingredients, except the fondant, in a large pan. Heat gently, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and boil for 5-6 minutes, or until the mixture reaches 116°C on a sugar thermometer (soft ball stage), stirring continuously. Put the fondant icing into a heatproof bowl and pour the hot sugar mixture over it. Cool a little, then beat vigorously until the icing is completely incorporated and the fudge starts to thicken. Pour into a small, shallow dish and leave to cool. Cut into pieces when cold.
