DIRECTIONS

  • Grease an 8 inch square pan, or line pan with heavy-duty foil and grease foil.
  • In a mid-sized heavy saucepan over a low heat, melt the chocolate with the milk.
  • Add in the sugar, corn syrup and salt.
  • Stir continuously until mixture is boiling.
  • Reduce heat and continue to cook - without stirring - until mixture reaches 230* F on a candy thermometer. (If you don't have a candy thermometer, you will know your mixture is done when a teaspoonful of the mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water.).
  • Remove from heat as soon as mixture has reached desired temperature.
  • Add in the vanilla essence and the butter, but do not stir.
  • Allow mixture to cool in saucepan until it reaches 110* F on your candy thermometer. (If you don't have a candy thermometer, cool mixture until it is lukewarm.).
  • Once mixture has reached desired temperature, beat it with a wooden spoon until the mixture begins to lose its gloss and starts to thicken (approximately 15 minutes).
  • Pour into pan. Allow mixture to stand until cool and hard.
  • Turn fudge out of the pan and onto a cutting board and cut into squares.
