Lets face it.

Christmas and the holidays are all about eating the things you try to avoid for the rest of the year. The things that give us all those guilt feelings about too much sugar and too much fat and too much milk.

Tis recipe, while being a little bit of heaven, isn’t all that bad for you in comparison to other things you might be eating.

If you feel those pangs of guilt, simply because its chocolate, remind yourself about all the antioxidants in chocolate that are remarkably good for you and then just enjoy the moment.

This recipe will make about two pounds of comfort food, and fudge.. while a holiday treat… isn’t just for holidays.

Make a batch tonight.

1 1/2 c Milk
4 oz Unsweetened chocolate (sqs)
4 c Sugar
3 tb Light corn syrup
1/4 ts Salt
3 tb Butter or margarine
1 1/2 ts Vanilla
Combine milk and chocolate in medium-size heavy saucepan; cook over low heat until chocolate is melted. Add sugar, corn syrup and salt and cook, stirring constantly, to boiling.
Cook, without stirring to 234F on a candy thermometer. (A teaspoonful of syrup will form a soft ball when dropped into cold water.) Remove from heat at once. Add vanilla and butter or margarine, but do not stir in.
Cool mixture in pan to 110F, or until lukewarm; beat with wooden spoon until mixture thickens and begins to lose its gloss. (This will take about 15 minutes.)
Spread in a buttered 8x8x2″ pan. Let stand until set and cool; cut into squares. Makes about 2 pounds.
