Simple Vanilla Flavored Chocolate Fudge
|Unsweetened chocolate square||2 Ounce|
|Sugar||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Milk||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Light corn syrup||1 Teaspoon|
|Chopped nuts||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)|
Cut or break chocolate into small pieces, put into saucepan with sugar, milk, corn syrup, salt, and butter; stir until well mixed and place over direct heat.
Cook with occasional stirring to the soft ball stage (234° F.), being sure to remove the pan from the heat while making the test in cold water.
When done, remove from heat, place pan on a cake rack, and cool without further stirring or shaking of pan.
When cool enough so the hand may be held on the bottom of the pan comfortably, add vanilla and beat fudge vigorously until it begins to stiffen and loses its shine.
Stir in nuts.
Turn out into a buttered 8-inch square pan, pressing into a uniform layer.
Mark in squares and cool thoroughly.
Makes 1 1/2 pounds.
