Prep Time: 50 mins ♥ Cook Time: 20 mins ♥ Total Time: 2 hrs ♥ Yield: 4 servings
3 tbsp glucose
3 tbsp sugar
4 cups milk
1 tsp baking soda
6 tbsp peanut
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate
1 tsp oil
Salt to taste
Cover the baking dish of your choice with parchment paper, veil with oil and leave it aside.
Take a saucepan and put in the glucose, sugar, milk, baking soda, extract of vanilla, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently so that the sugar dissolves. Lower the heat slightly. Cook for 10 mins.
Remove the mixture from the heat and add the butter, turning quickly with a ladle or spoon. After the butter is blended, add the crushed peanuts and turn very well with a spoon until you have a smooth, almost polished mixture.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and allow to thicken at room temperature for about 2 hours. After a couple of hours, when it will be congealed but not entirely, remove all lifting the edges of the parchment paper, cut the fudge into squares or with cookie moulds of the preferred forms.
Let stand overnight, and the next day proceed to decorate using melted chocolate and a cone of wax paper.
