Scottish Tablet - The Sweet Treat Everyone Loves

Indulgence is meant to be shared, and one of the sweetest ways to do so is by gifting homemade Scottish Tablet. This traditional Scottish treat, known for its creamy, melt-in-your-mouth texture and rich, buttery flavour, holds a special place in the hearts of those who have tasted it.

Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply want to spread some sweetness, homemade Scottish Tablet is the perfect gift. Try out our recipe here:-

Scottish Tablet

  • 175g unsalted butter
  • 450g caster sugar
  • 75g sweetened condensed milk


  • Line a 22 x 18cm tray with baking parchment. Put the butter and 150ml water in a pan over a low heat, and melt the butter (don't let the water boil). Tip in the sugar and dissolve, stirring often.
  • Bring the water to the boil, turn down to a simmer, then add the condensed milk. The mixture will be a light creamy colour.
  • Cook for 20-30 mins, stirring often, until the mixture is thick and a deep caramel colour.
  • To test, drop a little mixture onto a cold side plate, it should not run and should be thick and sticky after 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and beat for 10-15 mins until it has slightly thickened. Pour into the prepared tin and leave to cool for 30 mins before cutting into squares.

The tablet will look a lot like Fudge but it has a more grainy texture.  

The joy of presenting someone with a batch of homemade Scottish Tablet is immeasurable. It's not just a gift; it's a piece of your heart, a taste of tradition, and a gesture of love. So, brighten someone's day, share some Scottish Tablet!

Pairs perfectly with our range of Scottish Gifts.  💗
