Directions:
Directions:
Line a 8" x 8" x 2" baking pan with foil, letting the foil hang over the pan's edges. Grease foil with butter or margarine. Stir powdered sugar and cocoa powder together in a large mixing bowl. Stir together the dry milk powder and water in a small saucepan until powder is dissolved. Add the 1/2 cup butter or margarine. Put pan on a burner. Turn burner to medium heat. Cook just until mixture boils, using the wooden spoon to stir all the time to melt the butter or margarine. Turn off burner. Remove pan from burner. Or, put the butter or margarine in the microwave safe container. Cover container with waxed paper. Microwave on high at 100% power (high) about 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir in the dry milk powder and water with the wooden spoon. Microwave, uncovered for 1 to 2 minutes more until mixture just begins to boil, stirring twice with the wooden spoon. Pour the melted butter mixture into the powdered sugar mixture in the mixing bowl. Stir with the wooden spoon until smooth. Add the chopped nuts, if you like, stir with the wood spoon until combined. Pour fudge into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly. While fudge is still warm, use the table knife and ruler to mark the surface with 1 inch squares. Chill several hours or until fudge is firm. When fudge is firm, use the foil to life it out of the pan. Using a sharp knife, cut fudge into squares. Or, cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
