Recipe by PA Cindy
My dad always made the fudge recipe off of the Hershey's cocoa can. It can take a while but it was well worth the wait. I never liked any other fudge until my aunt gave me this recipe which tastes almost identical to the Hershey's fudge. My dad is gone now, but it brings back memories when I eat this fudge.

This fudge is delish! I did run out of my can of cocoa powder (I use the Hintz Dutch Processed brand) and so, I used 4 tbsps + 1/4 tbsp. of cocoa powder and the rest of Cadbury's Original drinking chocolate powder. The combo has worked really well in this recipe. My dad enjoyed this fudge after his lunch today, immensely. Thank you so much for posting! P.S. I am very sorry your dad is no more. I am sure you do miss him, but by sharing one of his best recipes with the rest of us, your doing wonderful. I'm sure he's smiling upon you always...
