Mamie Eisenhower’s Fudge Recipe

In the 1950s and ’60s, this was the go-to recipe for fudge because it took advantage of packaged products from the grocery store. We’re told that this was a family favorite of President Eisenhower and the First Lady, which might or might not be true. What is true is that this recipe was so strongly associated with Mamie that a copy of it appears in the archives of the Eisenhower Presidential Library.
