Directions:
Combine sugar, salt and cocoa well. Stir in milk. Heat on a medium burner. As the fudge reaches boiling you must stir constantly to keep fudge from burning. Keep at a rolling boil until fudge dropped from spoon into glass of cold water reaches a soft ball. Remove from burner and add butter and vanilla. (You can add other things at this point like a bit of peanut butter or nuts)

After fudge has cooled a bit, beat the mixture until it is smooth and has lost its shine. (It is possible to use an electric mixer to beat the fudge - add nuts after if you use beaters - but watch it closely and be ready to poour it immediately if it starts to harden) Poor onto a greased large round flat dish or other container where you can spread it out.
