I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Bailey's Caramel Fudge

This fudge is soooooo creamy !!!

I wanted a Bailey's fudge that had cream in it.  Couldn't find one, so I worked with a few recipes and came up with this.  Fiddled with the creams and added caramel spread just for fun!

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup 35% cream
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup 10% coffee cream
1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream Liquor (plus 2 Tbsps. for later)
2 Tbsp. Log Cabin Syrup
2 Tbsp. caramel spread
2 Tbsp. butter

Butter a piece of foil, then line an 8 X 8 pan with it.  (Easier to butter the foil first)
Mix all the ingredients in a pot and cook to boiling.  Use a good sized pot so you don't boil over. Boil until it reaches 238F on a candy thermometer (softball). Remove from heat and cool to 120F.  Do not stir.  You really need to use the candy thermometer, guessing doesn't work.
Add 2 more Tbsp. of Bailey's then beat until it loses the glossy sheen.  I actually took the pot outside (in the winter) to beat it.  It started thickening pretty quickly.
Pour into the 8 X 8 pan to set.

Really......let it set.  Don't be tempted to eat it with a spoon because it will set and make lovely squares. 
Hope you like it.
