I made this for my work place, using the recipe as is, and even if it isn't the exact original it was fantastic. Everybody loved it a and wants more.
My mother wrote down the original recipe from a cooking show when the Eisenhower's were in the White House and we have been making it every year since the 1950's and THIS IS NOT IT. The original recipe has German Chocolate and the sugar, milk, butter mixture cooks to a soft ball stage and it takes about 30 minutes with constant stirring.
i've been using a recipe from 'Talk About Good" by Lafayette Junior League Members for well over 20 yrs. this recipe calls for german sweet chocolate bars, now i'm sure german sweet chocolate wasn't around back then, but it's fabulous. i use pecans instead of walnuts. i rated this recipe a 4 and a 5 with german sweet chocolate
This sounds wonderful, but I have not made it yet, so I'll have to give it an average rating. And I'm wondering why is there no Vanilla put in it at the end? All the fudges I've made has always called for Vanilla.
I just visited the Eisenhower home in Gettysburg, Pa. and was given a copy of Mamie's fudge recipe. It is completly different. Sorry.....
