Gunilla’s kola

No Xmas without this super yummy chocolate fudge! My aunt Gunilla has made these every year for me, and that’s one thing I probably will keep making every year!!

Gunillas kola

100 g smält smör
3dl socker
1dl ljus sirap
2dl grädde
3tsk vaniljsocker

3msk kakao

Blanda allt, koka upp och låt sjuda i ca 30min. Har du en termometer är det 124c som gäller. Annars kulprov, droppa lite kola i ett glas vatten och känn hur konsistensen är. Ska va lagom mjuk :)
Häll upp på en plåt med bakplåtspapper, låt svalna, skär i bitar och sist slå in kolan i bakplåtspapper, eller i år lägger jag dom i små juliga formar.

Gunilla’s chocolate fudge

I use light syrup,  vanilla sugar and cocoa from Sweden. Ikea used to have all that but not anymore. So I can’t promise anything…

1/2 cup (1 stick) meltet butter
1 1/2 cup suger
1/2 cup light syrup
1 cup heavy whipped cream
4 tsp vanilla suger
4 tbsp cocoa powder (dark and bitter)

Mix all the ingredients in a pan and boil up and simmer for about 30 minutes. 255F is the perfect temperature. If you don’t have a thermometer, drip some fudge in a glass of cold water and check if it’s a good soft texture. Put parchment paper in a owen tin pan (is that the right word?!) wait for the fudge to cool down and cut into pieces and wrap each fudge in a piece of parchment paper.


So making fudge is one of the things I’ve been doing today. The Xmas music is playing (like everyday now!) and it’s now time to wrap some gifts and also write a to do list for tomorrow. I’m trying not to stress… easier sad than done!! My brother Victor and Lina are coming into town on Friday, and all the Swedes are joining us on Xmas eve, which is our big dag! Lots of stuff to do, but I really enjoy it all!!
