The important thing about making fudge as Tomás will tell you is to make plenty of it! Seriously though you can never have too much fudge.
Quality ingredients are key. Kerrygold butter is an essential ingredient. If Kerrygold ever start to adulterate their luscious butter with oil we will have to hunt for another butter producer.
The flavourings are special too. He uses so much vanilla essence that the recipe is printed in his head.
The quality of the brandy used with the macerated vanilla pods and more particularly the storage conditions really make a difference.
