Here’s an easy way to whip up this classic treat.

Step 1: Mix
Mix the sugar and cocoa together in the large saucepan. Then add the corn syrup and evaporated milk.

Step 2: Cook
Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring until it reaches 234 to 240 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat.

Test for doneness by dripping a small drop of the mixture into cold water. If it forms a soft ball, it’s done.

Step 3: Add butter
Stir the butter and vanilla into the fudge mixture and beat thoroughly.

You can also add chopped walnuts or pecans.

Step 4: Transfer to dish
Pour the fudge immediately into a buttered, rectangular glass dish – the mixture hardens quickly. Use a spatula to spread it evenly in the dish.

Step 5: Set, cut, and serve
Allow the fudge to set for a few hours, and then cut it into squares and serve. Fudge can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Did You Know?
Composer and fudge enthusiast Cole Porter had a standing order for 9 pounds of fudge to be shipped to him monthly.

  3. Okay, I really like the Howcast cooking videos (the corn bread video rocks!), but this video has some problems. It doesn't tell you at what temperature to cook the fudge, nor does it say anything about how long it takes to cook it. Really, guys, those details need to be part of the video for those who have never made fudge before!

  4. This video has some of the most immature comments I've seen on Youtube for a little while.
