Granny’s Fudge

Granny’s Fudge

I think fudge was a standard recipe in the time of my great grandmother, because it was fast and the ingredients were readily available.

It also helped that Mamie Eisenhower was publishing the recipes she made for her family and housewives across the country were copying her.

Here is one from my great grandmothers book of recipes. It’s very rich and sweet but doesn’t last long in my house.
