Good old-fashioned fudge! It'll take care of your sweet tooth and chocolate cravings all at once.

Ingredients

4
cups sugar
1 1/3
cups milk or half-and-half
1/4
cup corn syrup
1/4
teaspoon salt
4
oz unsweetened baking chocolate or 2/3 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/4
cup butter or margarine
2
teaspoons vanilla
1
cup coarsely chopped nuts, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Grease bottom and sides of 8-inch square pan with butter.
  • 2 In 3-quart saucepan, cook sugar, milk, corn syrup, salt and chocolate over medium heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and sugar is dissolved. Cook, stirring occasionally, to 234°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water; remove from heat. Stir in butter.
  • 3 Cool mixture without stirring to 120°F, about 1 hour. (Bottom of saucepan will be lukewarm.) Add vanilla. Beat vigorously and continuously 5 to 10 minutes, using wooden spoon, until mixture is thick and no longer glossy. (Mixture will hold its shape when dropped from a spoon.)
  • 4 Quickly stir in nuts. Spread in pan. Let stand about 1 hour or until firm. Cut into 1-inch squares.

Expert Tips

Substitute 2 cups packed brown sugar for 2 cups of the granulated sugar and omit the chocolate.
