    It is important you have the right tools - a candy thermometer is a necessity, you also need to know what a soft ball and a hard ball is. You drop the mixture into cold water and see if it balls up. Is the candy rolled into a ball? is it soft or hard? Another tip is to make sure you cook the mix long enough - it needs to boil, that is what the candy thermometer is for. It is essential it gets to the right temperature, or it won't set.

    I know I have a fudge recipe somewhere.... let me look! It was from my great grandmother, called Old Sailors Fudge, unfortunately, it is packed away. I will dig it up for you!

    Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

    Ingredients


    Ingredient Checklist 2 cups white sugar
    cup cocoa
    1 cup milk
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Directions

    Instructions Checklist Step 1 Grease an 8x8 inch square baking pan. Set aside.

    Step 2 Combine sugar, cocoa and milk in a medium saucepan. Stir to blend, then bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer. Do not stir again.

    Step 3 Place candy thermometer in pan and cook until temperature reaches 238 degrees F(114 degrees C). If you are not using a thermometer, then cook until a drop of this mixture in a cup of cold water forms a soft ball. Feel the ball with your fingers to make sure it is the right consistency. It should flatten when pressed between your fingers.

    Step 4 Remove from heat. Add butter or margarine and vanilla extract. Beat with a wooden spoon until the fudge loses its sheen. Do not under beat.

    Step 5 Pour into prepared pan and let cool. Cut into about 60 squares.
