  • 20g/¾oz unsalted butter
  • 400g/14oz condensed milk

  1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over a low heat. Add the condensed milk and double cream, then add the peanut butter and mix thoroughly for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is well combined.

  2. Add the milk powder a little at a time, whisking thoroughly until the mixture becomes a smooth fudge consistency. Add the stem ginger and half the almonds and mix.
