Hiker’s Pantry Fudge

At home:

Add the powdered sugar, dry milk, cocoa powder, and salt to a medium mixing bowl, whisk together well.

In a small glass bowl add the butter and water, melt on high for 30 seconds. If not fully melted, add 10 second bursts till it is.

With a metal spoon, slowly add in the melted butter mixture and vanilla, mixing well till combined.

Take a sandwich box and lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray or butter it. Scoop the mixture into the box and pat out flat using the spoon or clean fingers.

Cover tightly and let chill for 30 minutes or longer to set up. Carry in the box or pop out and wrap in plastic wrap or wax paper.

You can also add in nuts and dried fruit if you like, stir in at the end. Start with ¼ cup total and add more as desired.
For a mocha flavor add in 1 to 3 teaspoon of instant coffee or espresso granules.
To make plant-based/vegan, use powdered coconut milk and margarine instead.
