My mother used to make this fudge during the holidays. It is labor intensive as you have to beat it (by hand - a mixer does not work!) for quite a long time, but the finished product is the best fudge I've ever had!!! Sadly, I never bought a candy thermometer, so it has been MANY years since I've had this. Cook time in this recipe is approximate .....

How to Make Smooth and Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease a 9"X9" glass baking pan with butter. Set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, corn syrup, milk and chocolate (or cocoa) in a heavy saucepan. Mix well. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture reaches 234 degrees F. (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer - STIRRING CONSTANTLY. Remove from heat.
  3. Add butter, salt and vanilla. DO NOT STIR!
  4. When cool enough to hold hand on bottom of pan, add baking powder and begin beating with a wooden spoon.
  5. When mixture starts to thicken add nuts if desired. Continue beating until mixture looses its gloss and holds its shape when dropped from a spoon onto waxed paper.
  6. Quickly transfer to a heavily greased glass baking pan and spread evenly. Let cool for at least one hour before cutting into squares.
