Mom's fudge

Submitted by:
Another recipe from the Hershey's cocoa can, made this numerous times growing up. The boys liked it best when it didn't take right and then we called it spoon fudge. We used the dinner plates and just buttered them up to put the fudge on

Preparation time:
Cooking time:

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners


3 cups sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1-1/2 cups milk

1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla

pecans optional


Butter some dinner plates generously to pour the fudge into, this is what we always used Mom's corelle ware plates, could use really anything just be sure to be generous withthe butter.

Mix first 3 ingredients in a thick cooking pot, cook until the soft ball stage - if no thermometer just put some cold water in a cup and every once in awhile dip the spoon in and put a drop or two in that cup, roll around with your finger and if balls up into a soft ball - that is the soft ball stage :)

After taking off heat add the butter and vanilla, stir until butter melted. If you want pecans add them after the butter and vanilla. Pour into the plates and wait to cool. If you mess up good you get spoon fudge and OMG is that good, put it over some ice cream.
