Directions:
Combine cocoa, sugar and salt in a 3-quart saucepan. Add milk gradually, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir and boil until temperature reaches 232F on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount of the mixture forms a soft ball in cold water. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla; do not stir. Cool to 110F, then beat until fudge thickens and loses some of its gloss. Spread in a buttered 8x8-inch pan. When set, cut into squares.

If you want to go to the little bit of trouble it takes to make this recipe this is STILL the VERY best fudge I've ever had.
