This recipe is for the good fudge. The one without nuts or creams. This fudge doesn't use any shortcuts either, so use a candy thermometer for best results.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons butter
In a medium saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Mix in corn syrup, and milk until well blended. Add butter, and heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Stir occasionally.
Remove from heat, and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is thick and loses its gloss. Stir in vanilla, and pour into a buttered 9x9 inch baking dish. Let cool until set. Cut into small squares to serve.
