In response to the request for Chocolate Fudge with Evaporated Milk, I have a recipe from my mother's collection which is for "Mamie Eisenhower's Fudge." It used Evaporated Milk, so thought I'd pass it along. It's quite old, and I'm going to type it exactly as it appears on her recipe card.
This is a real stick to your ribs sort of pudding, a twist on the plain Bread & Butter that I've adapted from a recipe by the chef Simon Rimmer. My other half loves Bread & Butter pudding, but hates currants, so this is a version he gobbles up. This pudding comes with a sauce which you can serve in a jug to pour at table. Incidentally, the sauce has these beautiful tones of toffee and brandy and goes equally well poured over other hot puddings such as apple pie!
Fudge is not a twentieth-century invention, but fast fudge is. This recipe, an adaptation of the famous uncooked fudge developed by Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, became popular shortly after World War II, is as foolproof as it is fast. And it never turns gritty. From American Century Cookbook.
The year I made this I made 3 batches and served it to company on a deep red platter surrounded by holly sprigs. It looked like something from a magazine. I might add that I made them separately to insure that the fudge came out right. I cut into 2 inch squares so that is the yield I listed.
My mom decided to try these Snickers-like candy, and our family fell in love with them!!! They are very rich, so cut into small pieces!!! Also, each layer has to be refrigerated before adding the next, so plan ahead. The time is worth it though!!
"A delicious blending of dark sweet cherries and deep chocolate fudge" I am a fan of a mystery series featuring a caterer as the main character. They have mentioned a cherry chocolate fudge in all the books that I have read so far in the series, but the recipe so far has not been given. I kept wanting a piece of that fudge. So I decided to wing it , and this is the final result. My husband is not big on chocolate of any kind, and I can't have much of it since I am diabetic. I save out about nine pieces that I ration out over a couple of weeks for me, then I put the word out to friends and relatives to "Save me from myself". They don't waste any time getting here to remove the temptation.
I copied this recipe off the back of a jar of marshmallow cream. The recipe was for chocolate-walnut fudge. I just change the flavor of the candy chips for different flavors. It is a no fail recipe and always comes out the way you think fudge should.
I found this on the Pillsbury site and I plan on making it this weekend. As usual I can think of quite a few variations on the basic recipe, like dried sour cherries instead of cranberries, chocolate frosting instead of vanilla, pecans instead of walnuts... wow, the ideas are endless. I think I will be having some cavity inducing fun with this one!!
