1 pound powdered sugar
1/3 c cocoa
1/2 c margarine or butter
1/3 c evaporated milk
1 t vanilla
1 1/4 c chopped nuts (we left these out)
Grease with butter, an 8X8 pan. Sift powdered sugar and cocoa. Put 1/2 c margarine or butter in 2 quart microwave safe bowl and heat on MEDIUM for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted.
Add powdered sugar and cocoa, and evaporated milk.
Cook on HIGH 2 minutes or until warm and mixture becomes thin. Rotate halfway through if no turntable in microwave.
Add vanilla and chopped nuts. Stir until well mixed.
Pour mixture into buttered pan. Use wooden spoon or spatula to spread until even.
Chill in refrigerator until firm. Cut into squares.
Note from Leslie--I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of fudge, but if we wouldn't have had to take three pieces for judging I would have eaten the whole batch! It was THAT good. Even the judges commented on how smooth it was.
