Classic fudge

(post, Caroline Cummins)

When my siblings and I were young, my dad used to whip up messy batches of chocolate fudge for us to give away as holiday presents to our schoolteachers. He used marshmallows to make his version, but this recipe from the Joy of Cooking is more traditional, using real butter, chocolate, and vanilla.

If you don't have a candy thermometer, don't fret; you can guesstimate the temperature with an ordinary thermometer, and fudge is a fairly forgiving candy recipe.
