Instructions Checklist
  • Grease and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine sugar and milk in a large stainless steel pan; stir well. Add sweetened condensed milk and butter; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring often, until mixture turns a deep tan color and is thickened, about 10 minutes. Heat to 240 degrees F (115 degrees C) or until a small amount of mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.

  • Vigorously stir mixture, scraping sides down and mixing well. Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet. Allow to cool at room temperature until set, 1 to 3 hours. Cut into small squares or "tablets".

Cook's Note:

It should set relatively quickly (1 hour) but will retain a lot of latent heat until at least 3 hours after it is made. Hence be very careful trying the tablet before it is completely cold as you may well suffer a burnt tongue.
