Grandma's Classic Christmas Fudge Recipe

Creamy Cocoa Fudge from a Reader's Family Recipe

The Challenge

A reader sent me the ingredient list for her grandma's Christmas fudge. They didn't have the procedure and hadn't been able to make it since she died. Now this recipe lives again, and my reader's family is so happy!

The tricks to making a creamy and not grainy classic fudge: don't stir too early, and don't stir too late. Stick with me. I'll show you how!

Here are the ingredients you'll need to make this old-fashioned Christmas fudge recipe.

>2 c sugar >1 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder >1 Tbsp corn syrup >1/2 tsp salt >1 c milk          >1 Tbsp butter >1 tsp vanilla >1 c chopped nuts


1)Put all ingredients except vanilla in a pot. 2)Boil and cook to 234F. 3)Add butter & vanilla. Don't stir yet!

4)When the fudge cools to 110F, start stirring. 5)Keep stirring until fudge is thick and no longer shiny. 6)Stir in the nuts, if using.

Pour and scrape the fudge into a parchment-lined pan. Once cooled completely, cut with a sharp knife. Store at room temperature for up to 5 days. Keep in the freezer for several months.
