Chocolate Fudge

This is a basic chocolate fudge recipe. Feel free to add chopped nuts to this fudge.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: Total Time: 20 minutes


  1. Melt chocolate in milk in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar and salt. Increase heat to medium; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil without stirring until a small amount of the mixture forns a soft ball* in cold water, or about 234° on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove the fudge from the heat; add butter and vanilla then cool to lukewarm, or about 110°.
  3. Beat until fudge loses its gloss then quickly pour into a pie plate or loaf pan. Cool and cut into squares. Recipe can be doubled.

*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
