Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Type of chocolate: This fudge recipe works best using white chocolate melts. Chocolate melts can be bought in the baking section of any major supermarket (I generally use Cadbury or Nestle brand). If you can’t buy white chocolate melts, choose a block of white cooking chocolate and break into small pieces before stirring through the mixture. White chocolate melts and white cooking chocolate melt easier than a block of normal white chocolate, giving you a smooth, creamy fudge. 
Know the wattage of your microwave oven and adjust the time/temperature of the recipe accordingly – this recipe is made using an 1100 watt microwave oven and cooked on high. If your microwave has a lower wattage, you may need to cook the fudge longer. If your microwave has a higher wattage, it may need less cooking time. 
Test the fudge every 2 minutes – remove the fudge from the microwave every two minutes and stir. Once the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is lightly bubbling, it's ready. 
Use full fat sweetened condensed milk – full fat sweetened condensed milk will set firmer than skim condensed milk. I always recommend using full fat sweetened condensed milk when baking. 
Use white chocolate melts or white cooking chocolate – these melt easier than a normal block of white chocolate and will result in a smoother and creamier fudge. 
Storing the fudge: Fudge will last in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 weeks or in the fridge (sealed in an airtight container) for 2-3 weeks. It can also be frozen for up to 3 months(allow to come to room temperature before consuming). 
Stove-top option: To make this fudge using a stove-top, simply melt the butter, brown sugar and sweetened condensed milk over medium/high heat (stirring continuously) until melted. Remove from the heat and stir through the white chocolate melts and sea salt.
