Aunt Geneva's Fudge

“My aunt's fudge recipe is my very favorite. It's got a richer cocoa flavor than most fudge, and it doesn't require a candy thermometer.”

Directions

  1. Mix sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes--no need to stir.
  3. Set pan in cold water and stir in nuts. Keep stirring by hand till it gets glossy and starts to stiffen up (this is the tricky part--knowing when to quit stirring!), then quickly spoon out onto wax paper into tablespoon-sized pieces.
  4. NOTE: If you are in doubt about when to stop stirring and start spooning, go ahead and stop. Better to have a couple of pieces of soft, sticky fudge than a whole pot full of crumbly fudge!
  5. I've never timed this, so the prep time is a guess. It's pretty quick, though! I'm also guessing on the yield.
