Old Fashioned Cocoa Fudge
This is a crumbly, sugary old fashion fudge.... Old Fashioned Cocoa Fudge
Posted by chef Johnson 11/15/1999 in Desserts, High Calcium,
3 cups sugar 2/3 cup cocoa 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups milk 1/4 cup butter or margarine 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Line 8 or 9 inch square pan with foil; butter foil. 2 In large heavy saucepan stir together first three ingredients; stir in milk, with a wooden spoon*. 3 Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full rolling boil. 4 Boil without stirring, to 234 degrees F. 5 on a candy thermometer. 6 (or until syrup, when dropped in very cold water forms a soft ball which flattens when removed from water.) Remove from heat. Add butter & vanilla. 7 DO NOT STIR! Cool at room temperature to 110 degrees F (lukewarm). Beat with wooden spoon until fudge thickens & loses some of its gloss. 8 Quickly spread into prepared pan; cool. 9 Cut into squares. 10 Store wrapped loosely in foil in the refrigerator *it is very important not to use a wire whisk or anything like that. Also just stir gently, even though the cocoa will stay floating on top, it will mix in as the mixture heats up. This recipe was found at: www.thefunplace.com/fence/recipeboard/messages/5421.html
