This is the best fudge I have ever had! This was the first time I have ever made fudge (not counting microwave, chocolate chip, sweetened condensed milk kind). I followed the advice from other reviewers, other internet sources, and one of my mom's old cook books. I buttered my pan first, added some salt and instant coffee powder in the beginning, only string it until it reached a boil over low heat, put in a candy thermometer and waited until it got up to 236 degrees F (it took a while), turned off the heat, cut up and left the butter to melt on top until it cooled to 110 degrees F without disturbing it, added the vanilla and stirred it until it became really thick (it took 5-10 minutes and gave me a blister on my hand), and pushed it into a buttered 8x8 inch pan.
It came out great, and very smooth and creamy. It was thunder storming while I made it so it was probably pretty humid but that didn't seam to cause a problem. I cut it into 64 squares (1 inch cubes) with no problem. Will definitely make this again especially since I can with very basic ingredients.
