How To Make Decadent Old Fashioned Fudge Recipe

Set the Stage: Before you start, line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper or lightly grease it. 

This will make the removal of your fudge pieces a breeze.

Sweet Beginnings: In a heavy saucepan, combine the 2 cups of sugar with the 4 tablespoons of Hershey’s cocoa. 

Whisk them together until they’re well integrated.

Buttery Delight: Add the stick of salted butter and the 5 ounces of Carnation Evaporated Milk to your sugar and cocoa mixture. 

This is where the magic happens!

Stir It Up: Cook over medium heat while constantly stirring. 

Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and let it boil for about 3-4 minutes. 

The consistency you’re aiming for is a soft ball stage. 

A good way to test this is by dropping a tiny amount of the mixture into cold water. 

If it forms a soft ball, it’s ready.

Vanilla Essence: Once off the heat, stir in the teaspoon of vanilla. 

This will elevate your fudge to a whole new level of deliciousness!

Nuts About Fudge: If you’re a fan of nuts, fold them into your mixture now. 

They add a delightful crunch and contrast to the creamy texture of the fudge.

Set and Forget: Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. 

Let it cool for several hours. 

For the best results, resist the temptation to taste it and let it set overnight.

The Grand Finale: Once fully set, lift the fudge out using the parchment paper and place it on a cutting board. 

Using a sharp knife, cut it into squares and enjoy the fruits of your labor!
