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.
