Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Instructions

Combine cocoa, sugar and salt in a large, 3-quart saucepan. Add milk, gradually mixing thoroughly; bring mixture to a "bubbly" boil on high heat, stirring continuously. Turn control to medium heat and continue to boil mixture without stirring until it reaches a temperature of 236 degrees F. (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer. Remove saucepan from heat; add butter and vanilla to mixture. DO NOT STIR. Set saucepan in cold water to hasten cooling. Beat until fudge thickens and loses some gloss. At this time, add chopped nuts and pour into buttered dish or pan.
