I think this is the OLD recipe...

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter

In a medium saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Mix in corn syrup, and milk until well blended. Add butter, and heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Stir occasionally.
Remove from heat, and beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is thick and loses its gloss. Stir in vanilla, and pour into a buttered 9x9 inch baking dish. Let cool until set. Cut into small squares to serve.

I use this sauce recipe for topping and dipping deserts.  If you cool it, it is a tasty fudge.  The recipe was on the back of the Hershey Cocoa cans for a long time.


    * 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
    * 3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
    * 1-3/4 cups sugar
    * Dash salt
    * 1-1/2 cups (12-oz. Can) evaporated milk
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. 1. Place butter in medium microwave-safe bowl or 4-cup glass measure. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until melted. Add cocoa; stir until smooth. Add sugar, salt and evaporated milk; stir until well blended.

  2. 2. Microwave at HIGH 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until mixture comes to a boil.

Note: I never saw the microwave version, but melted the butter in a sauce pan, added the cocoa, sugar, salt and evaporated milk and mixed while heating until everything was smooth.  I added the vanilla after it was off the heat.
