Put the sugar, condensed milk, butter and salt into a large microwavable bowl and give it a mix together.

Set your microwave to 800 watts and blast your mix for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

Now is the time to add your festive flavours of amaretto, cinnamon and orange. If it isn’t the Christmas season you can always ignore the additional flavours or swap them out for one of your own combinations. Have fun with it! And then return to the microwave for a final 2-minute blast. Your mixture will have thickened, turned a tanned brown colour and be silky smooth.

Decant into a lined baking tray and set aside to cool. Once cool it will have hardened, ready to be sliced and shared with your loved ones.
