Mamie Eisenhower’s Fudge

When Maude Evans, who lived at the Trout Hatchery, went to Louisiana, she sent this recipe to me.

4 ½ cups sugar

Pinch salt

4 Tbsp. butter

1 tall can evaporated milk

Bring the above ingredients to a boil for six minutes.

Remove from heat and add:

12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

12 ounces German sweet chocolate

1 pint marshmallow cream

2 cups nut meats, chopped.

Beat until everything is melted.

Pour onto waxed paper and allow to set for three hours.

This recipe makes quite a lot, so have a large enough piece of paper and a large place to pour it out. It never dries out, but remains moist for a week or more.
