i think cos proper stuff handmade and uses copious amounts of cream which is expensive
Never taken any notice of the price..........just buy it if i want it. How much is it then?
Some places it can be like £1.25-£1.50 per 100 g
mmmmmmmmmm share then
That's not too bad..............wait till you have kids and you make the mistake of giving them a scoop and a bag at the pick and mix. Kiss goodbye to £5-£10 :lol:
Because its a specialist product being sold in a specialist shop as opposed to from a commercial kitchen.
easy to make yourself.......

plus you know whats going in it

I am too embarassed. Next time I will just buy some!!
I use this as a basis (thanks to James Martin)....even my nephews/neices can do it

Ingredients

oil, for greasing
300ml ]Milk
350g caster sugar
100g unsalted ]Butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

Method


1. Grease an 18cm square cake tin.

2. Put the milk, sugar and butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, until the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted.

3. Bring to the boil and boil for 15-20 minutes, stirring all the time.

4. When the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage (115°C on a sugar thermometer), remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

5. Beat the mixture with a spoon for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and the gloss disappears.

6. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to set at room temperature (do not put it in the fridge).

7. Once set, cut the fudge into small squares and store in a sealed container.

The clotted cream gives a really rich and delicious fudge. Ingredients
275 Gram Caster sugar (10 oz)
100 Gram Golden syrup (3 1/2 oz)
225 Gram Clotted cream (8 oz)
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla essence
Method
Makes 36 pieces

Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan and heat gently, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, cover and boil for 3 minutes. Uncover and continue to boil until the temperature reaches 116 °C / 240 °F.

Remove from the heat and beat until the mixture becomes thick and creamy. Pour into a greased 20 cm (8 inch) square tin. Leave for 30 minutes. Mark into squares with a knife and leave until set. Cut into pieces and store in an airtight container.
In America its like $5-$7 for a square hunk. At the beach it is weighed by the pound so a half pound comes out to be maybe $10-$15. I make my own. It doesnt cost much at all. Evaporated milk 5oz, marshmallows 2 cups, chocolate of your liking (9.5oz if semi sweet, 11.5 for most others), granulated sugar 1.5 cups. 2tbsp butter. 1tsp of vanilla extract. A quarter of a tsp of salt. Butter sugar salt and milk go in a pan and once it comes to a rolling boil stir for 5 mins (stir while it comes to a boil too) and once thats done add the chocolate chips and marshmallows and vanilla extract vigorously until its all blended then pour into pan i prefer an 8in by 8in lined with foil and let it cool then refridgerate it. Think this came from Nestle, I used nestle products
