Chocolate Fudge

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup powdered cocoa
1 cup milk
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
(optional is peanut butter to replace butter and 1/2 cup pecans)

Put into saucepan sugar and cocoa then stir to blend. Then add milk and corn syrup. Then put on medium heat stirring continually to dissolve sugar and other ingredients together. Using a candy thermometer cook until a soft ball. You can check with a spoon of the candy into a cup of cold water to make sure the candy has formed a soft ball. While you are waiting put a thin coat of butter on a plate to place fudge when it is ready. When is at soft ball, take off the stove and use a wooden spoon to stir 1 tablespoon of butter and the vanilla until the fudge gets thick enough to place on the plate. It is a good tasty option to substitute a tablespoon of peanut butter in the place of the butter. You can also add pecans just before pouring on the plate.
