Rich Cocoa Fudge
11/07/05 04:11 PM

I really wanted to try this recipe before posting it. But, I don't know if it'll ever happen. I found this in a brand-name cookbook I have, but it is also available on Hershey's website. I did a search and I don't think anyone else has posted this one. I ran this through Nutrition Data and the fat content is really low! Well, I mean, for fudge. I think it was 20% from fat. Or maybe I did the math wrong.

Rich Cocoa Fudge

Ingredients:
2/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter use IBS-safe margarine, or Soy Garden
1-1/2 cups milk use soy milk (I think rice milk would be gross in this, but you can give it a whirl)

Directions:
1. Line 8-or 9-inch square pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan. Butter foil.

2. Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in heavy 4-quart saucepan; stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to full rolling boil. Boil, without stirring, until mixture reaches 234F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water, forms a soft ball which flattens when removed from water. (Bulb of candy thermometer should not rest on bottom of saucepan.)

3. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla. DO NOT STIR. Cool at room temperature to 110F (lukewarm). Beat with wooden spoon until fudge thickens and just begins to lose some of its gloss. Quickly spread into prepared pan; cool completely. Cut into squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature. About 36 pieces or 1-3/4 pounds.

NOTE: For best results, do not double this recipe.

VARIATIONS:
NUTTY RICH COCOA FUDGE: Beat cooked fudge as directed. Immediately stir in 1 cup chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts and spread quickly into prepared pan.

MARSHMALLOW-NUT COCOA FUDGE: Increase cocoa to 3/4 cup. Cook fudge as directed. Add 1 cup marshmallow creme with butter and vanilla. DO NOT STIR. Cool to 110F (lukewarm). Beat 8 minutes; stir in 1 cup chopped nuts. Pour into prepared pan. (Fudge does not set until poured into pan.)
If you could tolerate it, I think it would be yummy to add some roasted peanuts (chopped finely?) ... we made Rocky Road fudge like that ages ago

HIGH ALTITUDE DIRECTIONS:
-- Increase milk to 1-2/3 cups
-- Use soft ball cold water test for doneness OR Test and read thermometer in boiling water, subtract difference from 212F. Then subtract that number from 234F. This is the soft ball temperature for your altitude and thermometer.
