This rich fudge is a holiday favorite for me and my family. The recipe yields plenty of old-fashioned flavor with no-fuss preparation.


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 pounds confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped nuts


  1. Place the first four ingredients in the order listed in a 3-qt. baking dish (do not stir). Place in a 350° oven for 15 minutes or until butter is melted.
  2. Carefully transfer to a bowl. Add vanilla; beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in nuts. Pour into a buttered 11x7-in. dish. Cool before cutting.
