Dessert-Cocoa Fudge

Love chocolate? I really do and found this recipe tucked away in my collection of recipes.
Almost 1/2 cup Hershey's Cocoa
3 cups sugar
1/8 teasp. salt
1 & 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1 teasp. vanilla
Combine cocoa, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan (3 quart size). Add milk gradually, mix thoroughly; bring to a "bubbly" boil on high heat, stirring continuously. Reduce heat to medium and continue to boil the mixture, without stirring, until it reaches a temperature of 232 F. or until a small amount of mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water. Remove saucepan from heat: add butter and vanilla to mixture. DO NOT STIR. Allow fudge to cool at room temperature until it reaches 110 F. Beat by hand or with portable electric mixer until the fudge thickens and loses some of its gloss. Quickly pour and spread fudge in lightly buttered 8x8x2-inch pan. Cool. Cut into squares. Yield about 3 dozen squares.
