LOOKING for: Hershey's Cocoa Fudge

kariSeptember 6, 2009

Growing up my mother made fudge from a recipe on the side of the hersheys powdered cocoa. It did not have sweetened condensed milk in it. Does anyone have this recipe? I have searched every can of cocoa for years.

Thanks for your help.

4 tablespoons cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter

Mix Cocoa and sugar. Add milk and butter stiring well and bring to a boil. Boil gently stiring often till softball stage. Soft ball is formed when a small amount is dropped from spoon into cold water.
Remove from heat, stir in vanilla, allow to stand until fairly cool, then beat until creamy and pour into buttered pan.

This was the recipe on the can probably in the mid 1930's when my Mom was a new bride. Over the years she changed it some...using less cocoa, substituting 2/3 cup evaporated milk for the cup of whole milk and after cooking, along with the vanilla she would sometimes add a couple big spoonsful of peanut butter and/or marshmallow cream.

And...she always cooked her fudge in a 9" cast iron frying pan. That is how I learned to make it..in the cast iron pan. Can't seem to get it to the right consistancy in any other pan even when using a thermometer.
