Mamie's Million Dollar Fudge

This entry was written when Dwight D. Eisenhower was President. Come back tomorrow to see what Tricky Dick's wife was up to while Mamie made fudge.
Mrs. Eisenhower has never made any pretense at being a cook. But like most people with no flair for food, she has impractical specialties. Hers are fudge and mayonnaise. Fudge is still one of her favorites and this family recipe is popular at the White House.

Million Dollar Fudge

Boil six minutes:

4 1/2 cups of sugar
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 tall can evaporated milk

Put in large bowl:

12 ounces semi sweet chocolate (chocolate bits)
12 ounces German sweet chocolate
1 pint marshmallow cream (2 jars)
2 cups nutmeats

Pour boiling syrup over ingredients in bowl: beat until chocolate isa ll melted, and pour in pan. Let stand a few hours before cutting. Store in tin box.

  1. You had me until the nutmeats. The word just bothers me. Can't one just say "pecans" or "walnuts" or edible nuts.Hmmm,come to think of it "edible- nuts" bothers me too.
