Fudge

I've always loved fudge.  I got a new recipe book a week ago with a recipe that sounded good, so I had to try this out.  Turns out it's super-easy and super-tasty -- a winning combination!  I made a double-batch -- half with nuts and half without.


Ingredients


  • 1 generous cup sugar
  • 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 oz dark chocolate, grated
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts

Directions


  1. Grease a 7 inch square pan.
  2. Melt sugar, milk, and butter over low heat until the sugar is fully disolved.
  3. Raise heat and bring to a boil.  Cook until it reaches softball (240 F).
  4. Remove from heat.  Add vanilla, chocolate, and nuts.  Beat vigorously until it reaches a smooth consistency.
  5. Pour into greased pan.  Let cool.
  6. Cut into small squares.  Store in refrigerator.  Warm to room temperature before serving.
