This recipe is from a very old cookbook I got in a collector set.

1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3 tbsps cocoa
1 tbsp butter
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped nutmeats
1 tsp vanilla extract

Put the brown sugar, white sugar, and cocoa in a 2-quart saucepan; mix to blend. Add the butter and slowly pour in the milk. Stir together well. Over a low to medium heat bring the mixture to a boil. Continue boiling while stirring; cook to the soft ball in cold water stage. Cool slightly then beat until creamy. Add in the vanilla and nuts. Mix well and pour into a buttered pan to cool. Pan size will depend on whether you want thin pieces of fudge or thick pieces.
