Hello Hannah, glad you like the look of the recipe. All you need is a normal, large saucepan - you can buy them quite cheaply in most large supermarkets. If you need any more info, check out our How to...guide for saucepans: http://uktv.co.uk/food/item/aid/511535

I really want to make this, but have NO idea what pan to use, any ideas would be really greateful. I only have my brother in laws light saucepans and dont want to ruin them, so need to buy one that doesnt cost a fortune. Ideas would be really welcome, and what type etc...I'm a bit clueless at this. Thank you, the recipe looks amazing!

Looks like a nice & simple recipe. Only problem is, there are no measurements given. How much Muscavado, Clotted Cream & Golden Caster Sugar should be used??

What can I do to view the fudge video. I am told I cannot view it from my current country or location? I live in the UK and am using my local library where I don't have any other problems
