This is the best recipe ever!
Ingredients: 3 cup sugar
2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/4 t salt
1-1/2 cup whole milk
4 T spoon butter
1 t sprron vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans (walnuts or other nuts)
Cooking Instructions: Items needed: One large spoon, one strong arm and a comfortable chair.
Mix sugar cocoa & salt in 3 quart pan (or larger). Add milk, heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Lower heat to medium. Cook to soft ball stage, stirring occasionally (drop small amount into cup of cold water, when you can pick it up and can roll it around in fingers it is ready) or you can use a candy thermometer (I don't have one, don't trust them).
Fill sink with about three inches of cold water. When fudge is cooked to soft ball stage, add butter and stir in. Set pan in sink of cold water, stirring occasionally until cool enough to put finger in. Remove pan from water, add vanilla and beat until smooth and ready for butter flat pan. Add pecans just before pouring into pan.
When beating it you can tell it is almost ready when it starts to have satin finish. from this point need to work fast so it will not get too stiff to pour into pan. Additional Comments: This is the receipt which was on the Hershey's cocoa can long ago. It is the best fudge ever. If you try it you will not want fudge made with marshmallows again.
