Old Time Chocolate Fudge

  • 3 or 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. light corn syrup
  • 3 tbsp. margarine
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Combine chocolate and milk in a large, heavy skillet.  Cook over low heat, stirring until smooth and blended.  Stir in sugar, salt, and corn syrup; continue cooking without stirring until 236F registers on the candy thermometer, or until a small amount of the mixture when dropped into very cold water forms a soft ball. 

Remove from heat; add margarine, vanilla, and nuts.  Cool, without stirring, until lukewarm.  Beat thoroughly until mixture thickens and loses its gloss. 

Pour quickly into a greased 8" square pan.  Cut into squares and remove from pan.
