    Tuggs, I don't like fudge either but I made this cheesecake, initially, for my hubby. I found that the firm texture of the Orkney fudge melts into the cream/cheese mixture forming soft, toffee swirls throughout the topping.

    I'm not a "sweet" person (ask anyone who knows me ) but even I've managed a second spoonful of this particular recipe.

    a thought struck me last night about this, i wonder if caramac bars would work? do they even still make them?

    Well folks been away canna believe that this recipe is so popular and it is so decadent all enjoy
    Im quite sure you are all contributing to the Orkney Fudge Sales you can buy it in Brass,s Thurso as well thats where I always got mine
    tuggs if you are using caramac melt over a bowl of water and use more than specified for the fudge it does work

    I have the greatest respect for my arteries which is why I believe in testing them once in a while with this recipe.

    Good luck floyed. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. Just make sure that no-one in the family is having their cholestorol checked on Monday.

    I have always heated up the fudge before folding in and gives you loads of very soft/runny bits through it (think recipe came from Foveran Hotel in Orkney). The Kirkwall Hotel add whisky to theirs and can highly reommend it even at 5 a slice.

    There is no way i would pay 5 a for a slice of cheesecake no matter how good it was!!

    Tried this cheesecake at the Fire Brigade car wash and sale yesterday. It was absolutely divine, even once it was battered about on the way home.

    I don't know if it would work in this recipe, Tuggs, but I bought some Caramac in the corner shop in Halkirk a few weeks back. I hadn't tasted it for years.
