    Dee514's Note:

    Posted by request. A creamy, smooth "old fashioned" cooked chocolate fudge candy. Cooking time is approximate. Times do not include cooling time. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: Soft-Ball Stage - 235° F–240° F At this temperature, sugar syrup dropped into cold water will form a soft, flexible ball. If you remove the ball from water, it will flatten like a pancake after a few moments in your hand. Fudge, pralines, and fondant are made by cooking ingredients to the soft-ball stage. For more info, see: The Cold Water Candy Test -

      I made the recipe again and I have to say now that I did it right, it is fantastic. No chewing sugar since it was cooked long enough. The fudge is chocolaty and creamy, very delicious. Never give up after just one try!
