    This recipe is originally my mother's, however I've taken my own twist with it, increasing the sugar and adding vanilla - removing the butter to create a perfect tablet every time that's easy for anyone to create. Family and friends and strangers from around the world have tried it themselves and sent me feedback stating that it's turned out perfect and tastes delicious. It melts in your mouth and is bursting with sweetness; the slight hint of vanilla is an added bonus that leaves for a great aftertaste.

    This is a great sweet we have here in Scotland. It is a complete sugar rush. It may be too sweet for some people but I love it. Try it anyway and see what you think. Kids will love it!

    This Scottish favourite is sure to please! This tastes just like the one you had as a child! Butter tablet is creamier crumbly fudge that is absolutely delicious! It may sound as though there is a lot of ingredients and you may think it might be tricky but it’s so easy and so tasty! I hope that you enjoy my recipe as much as I do! It melts in your mouth and is crumbly but not too hard at the same time, TRY IT! It’s lovely!

    This is pure heaven - well I think so anyway! It's sweet, melts in your mouth but is not chewy. This version is flavoured with chocolate and it makes a great gift. I always make some for my daughter's teachers at Christmas.

    This is a recipe handed down through the family. I have outgrown my love of all things sweet but my kids, friends, neighbours and family all love it! The secret to this recipe is constant stirring and lots of elbow grease at the beating point.
