    Making fudge is an art – don’t forget to use a wooden spoon and a candy thermometer for the best results. “Once it reaches about 236-238 degrees  (the “soft-ball” stage), do not stir it or even shake the pan. Why? Stirring at the wrong time causes the sugar to form large crystals.” – All Recipes. Resist the temptation and you’ll get yummy classic chocolate fudge, every time.

    Chocolate Fudge Recipe

    Course Dessert
    Servings 25


    • 4 c sugar
    • 1 c cocoa powder
    • 2 c fairlife milk
    • 4 Tbsp butter
    • 1 Tbsp vanilla


    1. Prepare a pan with butter and set aside.
    2. Combine sugar, cocoa, and milk in a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat, stirring continuously.
    3. Reduce heat and simmer and do not stir until it reaches {240 degrees using a candy thermometer}. You can also test a little of the fudge mixture in a glass of ice water and if it forms a ball, you're good to go.
    4. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla.
    5. Beat with a WOODEN spoon until the sheen looks dull {consider it your workout}
    6. Pour into a prepared pan and allow it to spread. Allow it to cool before cutting.
