I make this fudge, along with a few other flavors of fudge, every year for Christmas. It’s one of the few family traditions I’ve managed to keep alive. I don’t think this tradition will disappear any time soon, unlike the fudge itself that is usually gone before Christmas is.
This fudge is fairly easy to make, just be sure to work fast after you combine the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
3-1/2 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup granulated (or unprocessed) sugar
3/4 cup butter (1-1/2 sticks)
1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
small dash salt
In large mixing bowl, whisk or sift together powdered sugar and cocoa.
In medium pot, mix butter, milk, vanilla, granulated sugar and salt.
Bring to soft boil, stirring constantly.
Add powdered sugar and cocoa and mix well.
Pour into 8 inch pan lined with aluminum foil, let cool to touch, then refrigerate.
Use foil to lift fudge out of pan.
Cut into squares, put in airtight container and refrigerate.
