My first husband and I have been making this fudge every since we were married, for 30 years. It is really good and creamy. Give it a try, you will enjoy it.

How to Make Hershey's Old Fashioned Rich Cocoa Fudge

Step-by-Step

  1. Line a 8-9" square pan with foil. Or a plate that has been buttered.
  2. In a large heavy sauce pan stir in sugar, cocoa powder and 1/8 tsp of salt. Mix well. Gently stir in milk with a wooden spoon (make sure it is a wooden spoon).
  3. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.
  4. Boil without stirring until balls of candy can be dropped in cold water forming a ball that can be picked up by fingers.
  5. Remove from heat, add butter and vanilla. Do not stir.
  6. Cool at room temperature, this could take up to 2 hours or more. Do not stir.
  7. Beat in Walnuts if preferred. Beat fudge with wooden spoon until candy thickens and looses some of it's gloss. This can take up to 15-20 minutes.
  8. Quickly spread into prepared pan or plate. Cool.
  9. Cut into squares. Can use a warm knife that has been dipped into hot water and dried off to cut easier.
  10. Wrap loosley in foil and place in fridge. I did not place my candy in the fridge, just sat it on the counter and it was fine.
