Old Fashioned Fudge




  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Grease an 8×8 inch square baking pan. Set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, cocoa and milk in a large pot with high sides. The mixture will eventually bubble up and almost triple in size. Stir to blend, then bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, simmer and DO NOT STIR.
  3. Place candy thermometer in pan and cook until temperature reaches 238 degrees F(114 degrees C). This could take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Don’t rush it.
  4. Remove from heat. Add butter or margarine and vanilla extract. Beat like mad with a wooden spoon until the fudge loses its sheen. DO NOT UNDER BEAT or else fudge won’t set up.
  5. Pour into prepared pan and let cool. Cut into about 60 squares.
