Fudge can be a fussy confection to make, but this fool-proof recipe makes it easy for the everyday home-cook. Even the self-proclaimed cooking school dropout, Mamie Eisenhower, would whip this up without a worry!

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook time: 6 min

Yield: 2lb of Fudge


  • 4 1/2 cups granulated sugar

  • pinch of salt

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 1 can (354mL) evaporated milk

  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 13 oz german-sweet chocolate

  • 1 pint marshmallow cream

  • 2 cups walnuts


  1. Boil the sugar, salt, butter and evaporated milk together in a saucepan for six minutes.

  2. Put chocolate chips, German-sweet chocolate, marshmallow cream and nuts in a bowl. Pour the boiling syrup over the ingredients.

  3. Beat until the chocolate is all melted, then pour in a parchment lined pan.

  4. Let stand for a few hours before cutting.

  5. Store in a tin box.

Zhuzh it up!

  • Can't find marshmallow cream? Substitute the same weight in mini-marshmallows. They should mostly melt when you pour over the boiling syrup and the few lumps left behind are a treat!

  • This recipe is easy to reduce to half or even a quarter because this makes a lot!

This amazing recipe is by Mamie Eisenhower from Sarah Morgan of Cooking with the First Ladies
