Mandarin Success this time!

well the clementine cake might have been a disaster but this Macadamia and Mandarin Fudge sure wasn't!!! and soooo easy too... my guests loved it!

based on Chelsea's recipe here, i subbed my clementine for the limes, and added some orange essence.

150g toasted macadamia nuts
zest of one large clementine mandarin, scrubbed well
395g can condensed milk
500g white chocolate
1/2 - 1 tspn orange essence

Line a 18cm square tin with a piece of baking paper (so that the paper comes up the sides).
Place nuts in bowl and chop using turbo. set aside
Place the zest in the bowl and grate finely (10 seconds, speed 8 ). Set aside.
Place the chocolate in the bowl and grate (5 seconds, speed 8 ).
Add condensed milk to the chocolate and melt/combine (approx. 5-7 minutes, 50 degrees, speed 1). Check often and stop when fully melted. I found i had to stir with a spatula as it was a bit thick for the thermomix to stir evenly.
Add zest, essence and chopped nuts and combine (approx. 30 seconds, speed 1).
Tip into tray and refrigerate until set. Cut into squares and keep in fridge.

These look delicious. I'm frightened to make them in case I eat the entire batch. Thanks for the recipe! Jude
