1lb/454g granulated sugar
2oz/57g Butter (+ a little bit more to dissolve the oil in)
1/4 pint/142ml of evaporated milk
1/4 pint/142ml of fresh milk
couple of drops of vanilla essence (this component can be swapped out for all sorts of things including two big scoops of peanut butter )
Put everything in a big heavy pan except the flavoring/BHO and heat gently until all the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil steadily, stirring from time to time, until a you get your mixture to "soft ball" stage (240F/115C or when a small piece is dropped in cold water to to form soft a ball when rolled in the fingers, I can really recommend a sugar thermometer for this as they are only a couple of quid).
When the batch reaches 235-240F/112-115C crystallization begins to occur, at this point you take it off the heat and leave it undisturbed to cool down to about 110F/43C. If you agitate it before it cools properly it messes up the texture
Once you have got it 110F/43C then stir in your flavoring and beat the mixture till it becomes thick and creamy and starts to grain.
Immediately pour into a shallow buttered tin and allow to go cold and set.
Cut into squares when cold
To add the BHO I melt some butter down and then dissolve the oil into it as I find it a lot easier to fully mix it into the fudge this way. This is then added at the "flavoring" stage
I don't currently have any pics of my process but I will upload some next time I make a batch

As for dosage I really don't have a clue, I've never weighed bho so I just go with what I think is right to my eyes plus a little more to be on the safe side...
To me its better to be too stoned than not enough (thats just personal preference tho)

KBR has made me wonder about using reclaim instead of normal bho, I reckon you could dissolve the reclaim in milk and then use that instead butter.
I will give this a try in a couple of weeks but if anyone else has chance to try it first, could you please post your results
