It’s the grainy cousin of fudge and consists ALMOST ENTIRELY of sugar!



Scots Tablet differs from fudge in that it has a brittle, grainy texture, where fudge is much softer. Well-made tablet is a medium-hard confection, not as soft as fudge, but not as hard as hard candy.

Easy to make and easy to adapt with additions, like whisky, vanilla and/or nuts.
