I grew up eating this delicious fudge thinking it was my Mom’s recipe. It was but she clipped the recipe from The Los Angeles Times newspaper when Mamie Eisenhower was First Lady in the 1950’s. This recipe was also known as Million Dollar Fudge. It really tastes like a million dollars. It’s the creamiest dreamiest fudge recipe you have ever tasted. Easy to make, no candy thermometer needed. You will fall in love with this delicious fudge. My kids and family love this recipe.
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
12 ounces German’s sweet chocolate, broken into small pieces, that’s 3 boxes of Bakers German Sweet Chocolate
16 ounces marshmallow cream (that’s one large jar and 2 ounces of the smaller jar)
4 1/2 cups sugar
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) canned evaporated milk
2 cups coarsely chopped nuts, optional
In a large bowl, add chocolate chips, 12 ounces of Bakers German Sweet Chocolate, marshmallow cream (fluff) and nuts. Set aside.
Butter the inside of a 13 x 9″ pan.
In a heavy pan, pour in sugar, salt, add butter and evaporated milk. Over medium heat, bring to a boil. Once the sugar mixture is a hard boil, continue to boil for 6 minutes, stirring continuously. Remove from heat and pour syrup over chocolate and marshmallow mixture. Stir until thoroughly combined. Pour into buttered 13 x 9″ pan. Cool until room temperature. Cut into small squares and store in an airtight container. This fudge is great room temperature or stored in the refrigerator. I have made this recipe every year since 1978. Enjoy!
