A recipe for classic southern fudge that you can't resist.


  • "Two of this and two of that..."
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 blocks butter
  • 2 cans cream (evaporated milk)
  • 1/2 c chocolate Hershey's cocoa
  • a few teaspoons vanilla
  • Pecans if desired
  • Two of this and two of that
  • 2 c sugar
  • 2 blocks butter
  • 2 cans cream
  • 1/2 c chocolate hershey's cocoa
  • few tsp vanilla
  • Pecans if desired by Great-Mamaw


  • Serves 50

Heat a saucepot, over medium high heat. Mix the cocoa, cream, butter, and sugar. Melt together and mix well. After well mixed, turn heat to medium. Stir, wait, stir... keep doing so until the fudge has become thick (this takes practice!) To test if fudge is hot enough; get a small glass of cold water, get a spoonful of fudge and drop in glass of water. If fudge balls up, it's hot enough. If fudge drips to bottom of glass and does not stay together, keep cookin'. (If not done, keep stirring and test again) After fudge is cooked, turn off fire. Keep pot in place, quickly add vanilla and stir, stir, stir. Fudge molds fast so one must hurry! If desired, quickly add nuts. Within a couple of minutes, dump the fudge onto the marble slab. Completely cool before cutting into squares.
