Quick Carob Fudge

A nice gift or for a special occasion.

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp carob powder (or unflavoured cocoa if amines ok)
1 tsp butter

Before beginning get everything ready - this is a time sensitive recipe. Grease a cake/loaf tin or small baking tray. Clear the sink and get a hand-beater ready. Mix all ingredients in a medium saucepan and place over a low-medium heat. Stir until boiling. Boil for 6 minutes - keep at a rolling boil, but not boiling over. Take off heat and place saucepan in sink (the lower height helps). Beat until it starts to thicken. This fudge goes from thickening to too far very quickly. The more beating it gets the better it is. Pour or scoop the almost set fudge into the tray. When set, cut into squares. A hot knife helps.
Optional: Push raw cashews into almost set fudge. Use an electric hand mixer to make the process painless - but watch the thickening. - thanks to Melissa L (adapted from a recipezaar posting).
