  • Ready In

  1. Butter a 9x9 inch dish.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine chocolate, butter and milk. Bring to a boil and let boil 1 minute. Stir in sugar and salt until dissolved. Heat, stirring constantly, to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Let cool 10 minutes.
  3. Beat fudge with a spoon until it loses its gloss. Pour quickly into the buttered dish. Refrigerate 30 minutes, until firm.

Easy-on-hand ingredients, and VERY GOOD! Some tips: follow recipe exactly, use whole milk, cook milk/butter/chocolate on med high instead, and use candy thermometer to reach 234 degrees. Also, e...

This would have been the perfect fudge if I had just stuck to the recipe. DON'T USE SOY OR RICE MILK!!! It would not set but became a gritty yet delicous slop. Chocolate and water DO NOT mix!

My first attempt at making fudge is a success! This recipe is an easy way to fix a chocolate craving. This submission will certainly go into my recipe box. Thanks for the recipe.

Very good fudge recipe. I found that by raising and lowering the gas between 3 and 5 (out of 9 markers )and back again helped to avoid the mixture burning. Boil and mix for around 5 minutes. I ...
