ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 23 dark unsweetened cocoa, I like Hershey's Cocoa Powder
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12 cups whole milk
  • 14 cup butter
  • 12 cup pecans, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

directions

  • Line 8 or 9 inch square pan with foil.
  • Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in a heavy 4-quart saucepan.
  • Stir in whole milk.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full rolling boil.
  • Boil without stirring until mixture reaches 234 degrees on a candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball.
  • Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Do Not Stir. Cool at room temperature to 110 degrees.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Beat with a wooden spoon until fudge thickens and just begins to loose some of its gloss.
  • Quickly spread into prepared pan.
  • Cool completely.
  • Cut into square.
  • Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature.

    I made it exactly as the recipe called for, even using the Hersey's cocoa. It was creamy and just the perfect consistence. However, the chocolate flavor tasted of cocoa and not chocolate. Next time I'll use another source of chocolate such as Belgium Baking Chocolate.
