Serves: 60 

  • 400g white sugar
  • 45g cocoa
  • 235ml milk
  • 55g butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Grease an 20x20cm square baking tin. Set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, cocoa and milk in a medium saucepan. Stir to blend, then bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer. Do not stir again.
  3. Place candy thermometer in pan and cook until temperature reaches 114 degrees C. If you are not using a thermometer, then cook until a drop of this mixture in a cup of cold water forms a soft ball. Feel the ball with your fingers to make sure it is the right consistency. It should flatten when pressed between your fingers.
  4. Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla essence. Beat with a wooden spoon until the fudge loses its sheen. Do not under beat.
  5. Pour into prepared tin and let cool. Cut into about 60 squares.
