You Will Need
- 3 c. sugar
- 4 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp. light corn syrup
- 1 c. evaporated milk
- 6 tbsp. butter
- 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
- A large saucepan
- A candy thermometer
- A glass baking dish
- A spatula
- 1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Mix the sugar and cocoa together in the large saucepan. Then add the corn syrup and evaporated milk.
Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring until it reaches 234 to 240 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat.
Stir the butter and vanilla into the fudge mixture and beat thoroughly.
Transfer to dish
Pour the fudge immediately into a buttered, rectangular glass dish – the mixture hardens quickly. Use a spatula to spread it evenly in the dish.
Set, cut, and serve
Allow the fudge to set for a few hours, and then cut it into squares and serve. Fudge can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
