John Ritter’s Favorite Fudge

2 cups granulated sugar
3 to 4 heaping tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In large saucepan, combine sugar and cocoa and mix well. Add milk and stir until mixture is smooth. Set over medium heat and bring to boil. Reduce heat and boil slowly, stirring occasionally to remove mixture from sides of pan. Continue to cook until mixture reaches soft ball stage (238 degrees F) when tested with candy thermometer. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes.

Stir in butter and vanilla extract, then beat hard until mixture becomes very thick and starts to lose its gloss. Pour into buttered 8- or 9-inch dish and chill completely.

Makes about 2 1/2 pounds of fudge.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
