Mamie Eisenhower's Easy Fudge Recipe
I found this recipe for an easy to make chocolate fudge in an old cookbook. It is called "Mamie Eisenhower's Fudge". Since she has been credited with being the first person to use marshmallow creme and chocolate to make a quicker fudge, this fudge recipe was often called "White House Fudge".
Mamie was the first lady to Dwight Eisenhower. Her entire married name was Mamie Geneva Doud Eisenhower. Her span in the White house wasn't short, since she was first lady from 1953 to 1961. She was known for having a confident composure, her fashionable style, and the pride she had in her home. The first lady was frugal and even clipped coupons for the White House staff to use. She was known for doing well with the foreign dignitaries that visited our country. If she shared her fudge, I'm sure she was a big hit.

The fudge may be stored in an air- tight container and will keep for several weeks. I often freeze mine and it keeps well. I wrap the pieces individually when freezing so they don't stick together.
