Rich Cocoa Fudge

I know most of you probably only make fudge for Christmas, but why not make it for your sweetie for Valentine's Day?  After all - what's Valentine's Day with out chocolate?  Grandma notes that this is her favorite fudge recipe she says "This is an old recipe.  It makes a good & creamy fudge."

Rich Cocoa Fudge

3 C Sugar                                1/4 C Butter or Margerine
2/3 C Hershey's Cocoa            1 tsp. Vanilla
1/8 tsp. Salt                              1 1/2 C Milk (Grandma says she uses canned)

Butter an 8 or 9 inch square pan.  In heavy 4 qt. pan combine sugar, cocoa, salt & milk.  Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil.  Then boil without stirring until when dripped in cold water, it forms a small ball.  Add butter & vanilla, do not stir.  Let stand until lukewarm.  Then with wooden spoon beat until it thickens & fudge loses it's gloss.

The recipe card for this fudge, it getting very faded & difficult to read as many of them are - a good reason to start getting them copied to another format.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
