I found and bought a little cookbooklet at a thrift store that Karo put out in the early 1900's. (cost me a whole $2.00 without the cover!) This little gem came out about the time Karo came out with the dark syrup, whenever that was. I will type it exactly as it is in the book. Enjoy this!!!!! There is no copyright with this booklet.

Karo Fudge (A Great Success)
Grate two squares, or ounces, of chocolate and stir into one-half cup milk, add two cups granulated sugar and one-third cup Karo Syrup. Put over the fire and stir in two tablespoons butter. When chocolate is melted, allow to cook slowly, stirring once in a while. When the mixture makes a soft ball between the fingers, upon being dropped into cold water, it is done. After actual boiling has begun, about five minutes will finish it. Take from the fire and turn in one teaspoon vanilla extract and beat. Granulation will soon begin, when the mixture must be immediately turned into a buttered pan. Mark deeply in cubes when nearly cold.
