Chocolate Sour Cream Fudge

Sharon Raasch, Imperial, Neb.

2 c. White Sugar

1/2 c. Sour Cream

1/3 c. Light Corn Syrup

2 Tbsp. Butter

1 t. Vanilla Extract

2 (1 oz) squares Unsweetened Chocolate

1/2 c. Walnuts, chopped

Butter an 8-inch square baking dish and set aside. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, sour cream, corn syrup and butter. Bring to a boil, cover and cook 1 minute. Stir until well blended. Remove the lid, and without stirring, heat to between 234 and 240 degrees 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. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate and vanilla, do not stir. Set the pan over a wire rack until the mixture cools to about 175 degrees, about 15 minutes. Beat the fudge with a wooden spoon until it thickens and loses its gloss. Stir in walnuts, and pour into the buttered dish. Spread evenly, then set aside to cool and cut into small squares.
