Aunt Geneva's Fudge

My aunt's fudge recipe is my very favorite. It's got a richer cocoa flavor than most fudge, and it doesn't require a candy thermometer.

  • add   2 cups sugar
  • add   1 cup nuts
  • add   1/2 cup butter
  • add   1/2 cup cocoa
  • add   1/2 cup milk


  1. Mix sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes--no need to stir.
  3. Set pan in cold water and stir in nuts.Keep stirring by hand till it gets glossy and starts to stiffen up (this is the tricky part--knowing when to quit stirring!), then quickly spoon out onto wax paper into tablespoon-sized pieces.
  4. NOTE: If you are in doubt about when to stop stirring and start spooning, go ahead and stop.Better to have a couple of pieces of soft, sticky fudge than a whole pot full of crumbly fudge!
  5. I've never timed this, so the prep time is a guess.It's pretty quick, though!I'm also guessing on the yield.
