3 cups sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 1⁄2 cups milk
1 Tbsp. Karo syrup
4 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix cocoa, sugar, salt, milk, and Karo syrup in a pan. Cook on low until the mixture forms a soft ball when added to cold water (234 degrees on candy thermometer). Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Let fudge cool for 15 minutes, and then beat until the candy loses its glossy sheen. Add nuts if preferred. Pour into buttered dish.
