Old Time Fudge
2 cups sugar
¾ cup milk
2 – 1 oz squares of unsweetened chocolate
Dash of salt
1 teaspoon corn syrup (light or dark)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Butter sides of a heavy 2 quart sauce pan. Combine sugar, milk, chocolate salt & corn syrup. Heat over medium heat stirring constantly till sugar dissolves, chocolate melts & mixture comes to boiling. Then cook to soft boil stage 234 degrees stirring only if necessary. Immediately remove from heat add butter & cool to lukewarm 110 degrees without stirring. Add vanilla, beat vigorously until fudge becomes very thick and starts t lose its gloss. Quickly spread in a buttered shallow pan or small platter. Score in squares while warm and if desired. Top each with a walnut half – cut when firm.
* Note – if you like quickly stir in ½ cup broken nuts at the end of beating time when fudge begins to lose its gloss.
