Marian's Fudge Recipe
- 2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
step 1: Butter a 9x9 inch dish.
step 2: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine chocolate, butter and milk. Bring to a boil and let boil 1 minute. Stir in sugar and salt until dissolved. Heat, stirring constantly, to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Let cool 10 minutes.
step 3: Beat fudge with a spoon until it loses its gloss. Pour quickly into the buttered dish. Refrigerate 30 minutes, until firm.
