This fudge is great! I did a few things differently. I did not use a double boiler (I'm impatient!) I just put the milk, butter, and sugar in a heavy saucepan, brought to a boil, then cooked (stirring constantly) for about 5 minutes. Then I added everything else as this recipe suggests. This is definitely one for the recipe box!
I have used this recipe for decades. It is a terrific recipe that makes nice creamy chocolate fudge. It always gets raves from friends. The only difference is that I use 1 (12 oz) can of evaporated milk. (I don't like odd amounts left over, and I've never felt that it affected the outcome.) The real key to success is to always use a candy thermometer, and to always check the boiling point of water at the time you make the fudge. It varies each time. For example: Boiling point is 212 degree F. Today it was 8 degrees lower. That meant I needed to stop cooking the fudge at 228 degrees rather than at 236 degrees (soft ball stage). Therefore, it is critical that you always boil some water and check the boiling point before making candy.
i used to make fudge exactly like this but i lost my recipe. i've been searching for a few years for this fudge. i've tried many other kinds only to throw it away. this is the most "remarkable fudge" and my family is excited to come over and taste our favorite fudge!!!
This was very easy and versatile. . . make sure to bring to hard boil and keep it there for 10 minutes to make a firm fudge.
