3 cups sugar
2/3 c of Hershey's cocoa
1 & 1/2 c half & half
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 tbls. butter
mix together, sugar, cream & cocoa. Bring to a hard boil for one minute, stirring constantly. reduce heat to a slow boil & cook until the candy forms a solid, firm soft ball when dropped in water. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Let cool and then beat until the fudge loses some of it's gloss. Pour out into buttered 9x12" glass pan. Let set until firm then cut into desired size.
You can add nuts after it has been removed from the heat. My family had rather have it plain.
I made about 7 batches while I was there and took 3 with me.LOL..Do you think my family likes fudge????
Ellie Ps. A tip...Don't beat with a mixer. Use a wooden spoon...
