Farmhouse Fudge

Fudge used to be an extra special treat that would magically appear, like Santa at Christmas. Grandma would make enough to share with all of her neighbors and friends alongside her vast assortment of homemade cookies, but she'd save a special stash of it just for the grandkids. With our Farmhouse Fudge, you can take a sentimental trip back to the good old days any time you like! All you have to do is combine chocolate, sugar, Smith's Milk, Karo and butter and boil until a bit of the hot syrup forms a soft ball in cold water. (If you have a candy thermometer, cook until the temperature reaches 238 degrees.) Remove your Farmhouse Fudge mixture from the heat and let it cool, then beat vigorously until the mixture starts to set. Pour into a buttered pan, and cut into squares when completely cooled. Follow grandma's tradition and treat your friends and neighbors with this rich and chocolatey Farmhouse Fudge — or keep it all for yourself!
