Old Time Fudge

  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, cut up
  • 1 teaspoon light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts

Butter the sides of a heavy 2-quart saucepan. In it combine sugar, milk, chocolate, and corn syrup.  Cook and stir over medium-high heat till sugar dissolves and mixture comes to boiling.  Continue cooking over medium-low heat to 234 degrees F (soft-ball stage), stirring frequently (mixture should boil gently over entire surface).  Remove from the heat; add margarine and vanilla, but do not stir.  Cool without stirring to lukewarm (110 degrees F), about 55 minutes.  Add nuts.  Beat vigorously about 7 minutes, or until fudge becomes very thick and just starts to lose its gloss.  Immediately spread in a buttered 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.  Score into squares while warm, cut when firm.
