Mom’s Fudge

When we lived on the farm, we didn’t get to town much, so we had to make our own treats at home.  If you were close by and had a spoon handy you could help lick the pan while waiting for the fudge to set up enough to eat.

Mom’s Fudge

3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 tablespoons coco
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter

Combine sugar, cornstarch and cocoa. Stir until blended, adding enough milk to dissolve it. Boil until a soft ball stage. Remove from the heat to cool and add butter and vanilla, but do not stir or move the pan or the fudge will be grainy.  When the pan feels just warm, beat until it begins to lose its gloss, then quickly pour into a buttered pan.  When set up, cut into squares.
