Kids from miles around would come to our doorstep on Halloween, looking for this luscious fudge that they’d come to expect.

1 tablespoon butter
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup whole milk
2 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, or 1 heaping tablespoon peanut butter (optional)
candy corn, for topping (optional)
  1. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan. Add sugar, milk, and chocolate, and stir constantly until chocolate is melted. Boil for 13 minutes on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat and add vanilla (and walnuts or peanut butter) and beat until creamy. Work quickly. Pour at once into a buttered baking dish, cool slightly, and mark into squares. 
  3. Add candy corn (if using) on top before you let the fudge completely cool.
