    Old Fashioned Fudge

    I've misplaced my favorite fudge recipe, and I haven't been able to find a recipe for fudge that comes close to the final product that I remember. This is probably a good thing, since I really don't like the "easy" fudge recipes, especially those that use marshmallow creme, so I haven't been tempted to make, let alone eat, those recipes.

    My old recipe used cocoa powder, sugar, water, etc. which was cooked for a long, long time until reaching the soft-ball stage. I vaguely remember that it was important not to stir the boiling chocolate mixture during certain critical times. Once the mixture reached the proper temperature, it was taken off the heat, cooled slightly and then butter and vanilla stirred in vigorously.

    As a child, I remember this recipe was on the back of the Hersheys Cocoa cans, but not anymore. Does anyone still have this recipe?

    Thanks, Ed. That's exactly what I was looking for. <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    It does take a lot of patience to make this fudge, but it is so much better (in flavor and texture, both) than the marshmallow varieties, that it is well worth the extra time and effort.

    Damnit Ed, Ive never looked in here for some reason, probably because I don't have much time and tend to stick to the forums relating to computer stuff, now I need a sugar fix! Gimme fudge, caramel fudge in particular would be nice. Man its ages since I made anything like that. <img src=/S/munch.gif border=0 alt=munch width=19 height=17>
