MAMIE EISENHOWER'S FUDGE

This recipe has long been credited to former First Lady Mamie Eisenhower. This fudge recipe she shared during that time was very popular during her husband's term in the 1950s.

4 1/2 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
1 can (13-oz) evaporated milk, undiluted
1 package (12-oz) semi-sweet chocolate pieces (2 cups)
3 packages (4-oz each) sweet baking chocolate, cut into pieces
2 jars (7-oz each)) marshmallow creme
2 cups coarsely chopped nuts

In a 4-quart heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, bring the sugar, salt, butter, and evaporated milk to a full boil. Boil for 6 minutes, stirring constantly. Off heat, add chocolates and marshmallow creme, stirring vigorously and speedily until the chocolate is melted and mixture is a uniform color. Immediately stir in the nuts and pour into a buttered 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Refrigerate until firm enough to cut into large squares or bars; wrap each individually. Keep stored in the refrigerator. Makes about 5 pounds.
