Momma’s Fudge

24 Servings

Note:  Nobody, but nobody, made fudge like my mom – unless they used this recipe.  Good fudge is not easy to make, but as a friend of mine, who learned to make this fudge from my mom says, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  Trust me”

 8 cups sugar

1 cup cocoa

1 tsp, salt, level

2 cups pecan halves

1 stick butter

2 cups milk

2 small cans evaporated milk

Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in a large pot. Add 2 cups milk and 2 small cans evaporated milk.  Stir on a low heat until melted.  Raise het abnd  bring to a full boil, stirring all the time so it will not go over.

Lower heat so it just boils stirring every once in awhile.  Do this until it makes a firm ball when dropped in cold water.  Test by dropping a bit of the mixture in a glass of cold water.  When the ball hits against glass it will ping when ready.

Put 1 stick butter and nuts.  Stir until melted.  Let stand a few minutes.  Then beat until it gets shiny and pour in buttered cookie sheets.

When cooled, cut and serve.
