Recipe

A bite of this fudge will bring back memories of childhood summers at Coney Island-the Cyclone, the Wonder Wheel, the cool sand under the boardwalk, the fudge.

Yield: Serves 10

Ingredients

  • 1 cup light cream
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ pound walnuts or pecans, chopped

Directions

1. Combine the cream, chocolate, and sugar in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Add the salt and let the mixture come to a boil. Turn down the heat to very low and cook without stirring until the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage, 236°F on candy thermometer.

2. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the butter and vanilla, but do not stir. Let the mixture cool until lukewarm (110°F). Then beat the fudge with a wooden spoon until creamy. Add the nuts and mix well. Transfer the fudge to a buttered 8-inch-square baking pan. Cover and chill. When firm, cut into small squares.
