my chocolate fudge....easy

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 4 heaping tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter, plus extra for buttering dish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix sugar and cocoa; add syrup and milk. Cook in saucepan over medium heat until a small drop forms a soft ball in cold water (234 to 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer). Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla, beat with mixer or by hand. Pour into a slightly buttered oblong glass dish and cut into squares. Work fast, as mixture thickens quickly.

You can add nuts if you wish when you add the butter and vanilla.   I leave it plain.
