Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge is everything a homemade fudge should be, so get your candy thermometer ready.
I have been searching and searching for the chocolate fudge that I had tasted when I was about 8 or 10 years old, if you can believe that! This fudge melted in your mouth and was just a little bit crumbly.
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 Tablespoons Hershey’s cocoa
- 1 stick of salted butter
- 5 ounce can of Carnation Evaporated Milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla

How To Make Old Fashioned Fudge
Mix sugar and cocoa in a saucepan, then add a stick of butter and the can of evaporated milk, and stir until the mixture starts boiling.
Stir continuously for 7 minutes, then remove from heat and add vanilla, then stir the mix continuously for 3 minutes, then pour into a buttered baking dish to set.
Great fudge in less than 20 minutes!
