Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
5 stars for the experience! I just became a member so i could rate this recipe and its reviews! thanks so much for all the hints! i am an amateur fudge maker and amazingly it came out! phew - that was the most chaotic 20 minutes of my life! in a mixing bowl i premixed the first 3 ingredients with the addition of one instant coffee packet which in hindsight is too overpowering and i tried to compensate with 2 more rounded TBL of cocoa. i had everything ready before i began including the buttered pot and baking pan. once the mixture came to a boil over medium on my gas range in 2 minutes of heating i lost all order and continued with the soft ball testing 30 seconds or so. after 9 failed tests i took a fresh spoon and tasted the texture which instantly reminded me of the "velvety smooth" texture i had read in reviews. i took a moment to ponder whether it was done and decided to take it off the heat. after a minute or so i added the cut up butter and vanilla. stirring once it had cooled to the mid 100s took about 7 minutes. it was very evident the fudge was starting to thicken about half way through. from what i can tell it is smooth and yummy! fyi i used 2% milk and it was a rainy day. the fudge is perhaps slightly too sweet and i may adjust that next time but first i will let the taste-testers try it. i will definitely make this again! thanks for the recipe!
