Attach the candy thermometer to the side of the pan, making sure it does not touch the bottom.

Continue to cook without stirring until the mixture reaches the soft-ball stage, about 234°F (112°C).

Cool the Mixture:

Remove the saucepan from heat and let it cool to around 110°F (43°C) without stirring. This will take about 10-15 minutes.

Beat the Mixture:

Once cooled, add the vanilla extract.

Using a wooden spoon, beat the mixture until it thickens and loses some of its gloss. This step is crucial for achieving the right texture.

Pour and Set:

Pour the thickened mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Temperature Control: Using a candy thermometer ensures the fudge reaches the correct temperature.

Patience: Allow the mixture to cool and beat it adequately to achieve the perfect texture.

Enjoying Your Fudge:

Fudge makes a great gift or a delightful treat for yourself. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator to keep it fresh longer.
