Absolutely no changes to the recipe. The flavor is excellent, and I liked it a lot better by the second day. Is it as good as The Candy Man's? No, but it was close and for this week, good enough. I think it might have done with another minute or 90 seconds of beating with the wooden spoon. Thank you so much to Book_Worm at Allrecipes for sharing this one, which I found through KitchMe.

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge
2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup milk
4 tbsp butter -- or margarine (used butter)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Prepare an 8"x8" baking pan by greasing the bottom and laying in a piece of parchment or foil large enough that the edges hang out over the sides. This makes for easier removal of the fudge. Great the parchment and set aside.
Sift cocoa if necessary, then combine with sugar and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat until mixture is simmering, and do not stir any more.
Using a candy thermometer, cook to soft ball stage (238º). Remove from the heat, add butter and vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until the mixture is no longer glossy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Pour into the prepared pan and let cool slightly. Score the squares lightly into servings and let cool completely.
