Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1/4 cup butter, divided

  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (2 each) equals 106 calories, 2 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 6 mg cholesterol, 33 mg sodium, 22 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Line an 8-in. square pan with foil and grease the foil with 1-1/2 teaspoons butter; set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa and salt. Stir in the milk until smooth; bring to a rapid boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook without stirring until a candy thermometer reads 234° (soft-ball stage). Remove from the heat; add vanilla and remaining butter (do not stir).
  2. Cool to 110° (about 5 minutes). Beat with a spoon until fudge thickens and just begins to lose its gloss. Immediately spread into prepared pan. Cool. Using foil, lift fudge out of pan. Discard foil; cut fudge into 1-in. squares. Yield: about 5 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2010

This was my first successful fudge I have ever made in my life. I thought making fudge was going to be a breeze, but found out that it takes patience. This recipe was delicious, easy and turned out the way I always imagined fudge to be. However, it will take approximately 22-25 min. for the temp to get up to 234 degree and at least 45-50 min. for the temp to get down to 110 degrees, just be patient, it will be worth the wait! :)
