TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Describe the preparation steps of your recipe
Prepare a 20cm square cake or slice tin by lining it with baking paper.
Add all ingredients into the bowl except for the Vanilla, add them in the order they are written.
Set your timer to 40mins, Next set your temperature to 115° then speed to 1. MC needs to be left off, (you can put your simmering basket of if it is splattering a bit) after approx 3 mins once the butter has melted turn the speed up to 3 for the remainder of the cooking time.
Check at the end of 40 mins to see if the mixture is at "soft ball" stage by using a candy thermometer, or by using the "soft ball" method which you can do by dropping a spoonful of the mixture into a cold glass of water and using fingers to see if you can roll it into a "soft ball". Depending on where you live the fudge mixture could take an additional 10 mins (50mins all up) to reach "soft ball" stage as it took me 40 mins to make this here in NQLD in Winter and 50 mins in Summer due to the humidity here.
Once it has reached "soft ball stage" allow to cool for around 5 mins leaving the lid of for all of the steam to escape.
Next add the Vanilla then the lid and with out the measuring cup (you can put the simmering basket on if you like to stop little spatters but the mixture is not likely to splatter up and out everywhere due to it being thick) and gradually take the speed up to 6 for the first minute then up to 7.
You will need to beat the mixture for at least 3 to 3 1/2 mins until the mixture thickens up more and turns less glossy. (I checked it at 3 mins and did an extra 30 secs then it was ready but do not to overbeat otherwise it will start to set in the bowl).
Next quickly transfer it to the prepared tin, and I must stress "Quickly" as it will start to set in the bowl.

****Please read all before starting this recipe
I used to make this type of fudge all the time over the stove and this method to make "Traditional Homemade Fudge" in the Thermomix is so much easier than standing over a hot stove, but took me a few times until I had got it right, so dont be upset if it fails the first time due to not understanding how to make fudge as this is now my 10th time and I can not stress that you need to be quick to get it into your prepared pan before it starts to set in your bowl after you have beat it, Enjoy **This recipe was found on the UK Thermomix website for the TM31, but had to change to cooking times and temp to suit the TM5**
