by , Updated March 31, 2017


  1. Melt chocolate over very low heat. Add milk and salt; stir well. Stir in sugar and bring to a full boil over medium heat. Continue to cook, stirring only once or twice, until mixture forms a soft ball * (about 236 F ) in about 1/2 cup cold water; remove from heat. L
  2. Add butter and vanilla; do not stir. Let the fudge stand until it reaches a temperature of about 110 F.
  3. Stir in walnuts.
  4. Beat well with a large wooden spoon until mixture begins to thicken, then pour quickly into a buttered pie plate.
  5. Refrigerate; cut into squares when fudge is firm.


*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of candy syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but flattens a bit when picked up with fingers (234 F to 240 F ).
