About this recipe:
This is an easy and delicious "sweet" that is a little different!
600g (1 lb 6 oz) caster sugar
250ml (8 fl oz) evaporated milk
175g (6 oz) dates, pitted and chopped
150g (5 oz) chopped nuts
- Butter a 30x40cm sheet of aluminium foil and dust generously with icing sugar.
- In a saucepan over medium-high heat, mix together the sugar and evaporated milk. Stir frequently and bring to softball stage of 110 degrees C. Stir in dates and nuts; allow mixture to cool.
- Form into a roll about 4cm in diameter and wrap in the prepared foil; chill in fridge until firm. Slice thinly with a knife dipped in hot water to serve.
