Would you believe this is a recipe we made in my 9th grade home economics class? They don't even teach that any more. I still make this fudge because it is the "old timey fudge", which I prefer over the quick fudge.

I'm guessing that my teacher called it "college" fudge hoping to encourage us all to go to college.

How to Make College Fudge (Old Timey Chocolate Fudge)


  1. In a medium size heavy saucepan, mix the sugar, cocoa and milk. Stir in the syrup and cook on medium heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Continue to cook, stirring only occasionally, until it reaches the soft ball stage. This normally takes about 20 minutes once boiling.
  2. Remove from heat and do not stir. Set aside to cool. Once it's cooled down add the vanilla and butter and beat until it loses it's shiny look. Add nuts at this point if you so desire.
  3. Quickly pour into a buttered small shallow glass dish. Allow to harden then cut.
