This is the easiest fudge recipe I've ever found! Creamy, sweet and my Texan husband says it reminds him of how his mother made fudge when he was young! What better compliment could I get? Also, one-pan preparation!
- 1 lb powdered sugar (4 1/2 cups)
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- Butter a 9x5-inch pan.
- In a medium saucepan, heat sugar, butter, cocoa, milk, vanilla and salt over low heat, stirring until smooth. Stir in chopped pecans.
- Spread quickly in a buttered 9x5-inch loaf pan. Cool. Cut into squares.
I have the same recipe that was handed down from my mother decades ago. I have also substituted 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter for the butter.. Makes GREAT chocolate-peanutbutter fudge!!
