Million Dollar Fudge

The easiest and most delicious chocolate walnut fudge recipe, thanks to Mamie Eisenhower, wife of our 34th president Dwight D. Eisenhower! (It’s President’s Week) 🙂

You’ll need:
4 1/2 cups sugar
Pinch salt
2 tbls butter
12 oz can evaporated milk
2 cups coarsely chopped walnuts
1 pint (or two 7 oz containers) marshmallow cream
12 oz semi sweet chocolate
12 oz German sweet chocolate

1. In a saucepan add the sugar, salt, butter and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil, then set a timer for 6 minutes, keeping the mixture at a low boil.

2. In a large bowl, add both chocolates and marshmallow cream. When the timer is up, slowly pour the boiling mixture over the chocolate/marshmallows. Stir until all ingredients are melted and well combined. Pour in the walnuts (or pecans) and stir.


3. Grease a 9×13 inch pan with butter or non stick baking spray. Pour the fudge in and use a spatula to smooth out the top.

4. Leave on the counter to set for at least 6 hours before cutting. Don’t put in the fridge or you’ll get condensation on the top. If you’re in a huge rush, I suppose the condensation wouldn’t ruin it 🙂 But it’s better if you’re not rushing, and even have the time to leave it setting on the counter overnight!


Cut into small pieces, it’s very rich! So, so delicious. And SO simple!

Thanks, Mamie!

Have a great weekend,
