3/4 milk or thin cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate or 4 tablespoons cocoa

Directions:
Directions:
Perfect fudge is smooth and creamy. Corn syrup insures this, but you can make good fudge without it. Use a wooden spoon for stirring and beating. Put in heavy saucepan. Set over moderate heat. Stir gently until the chocolate melts, afterwards just enough to keep the fudge from burning. Cook to the soft ball stage (234). Remove from the heat. Add, without stirring it in 2 tablespoons butter. Let stand until almost cold. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla. Beat until the fudge is no longer glossy and is thick and creamy. Pour into a slightly buttered pan about 8 by 14 inches. Make in squares.

1) Chocolate Sour cream fudge. Use sour cream in place of milk and butter.
2) Chocolate Nut Fudge. Before pouring into the pan add 1/2 to 1 cup broken nut meats.
3) Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge. Before pouring into the pan, add 12 marshmallows cut into pieces with scissors.

Ozelle Hand lived at Bonny apartments during the time I worked there (going to college), she would cook meals for me about once a week. She also made fudge and brought it to us in the office. She and I made this recipe together.
