Directions:
Mix sugar, cocoa, and salt in heavy 4-quart saucepan; stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to full rolling boil. Boil without stirring until mixture reaches 234º F on candy thermometer or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball which flattens when removed from water.
Remove from heat. Add butter and vanilla. DO NOT STIR. Cool at room temperature to 110º F (lukewarm). Beat with wooden spoon until fudge thickens and just begins to lose some of its gloss. Add one cup chopped walnuts or pecans. Quickly spread into lined and buttered 8 or 9” square pan. Cool completely. Cut into squares. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.
