Million Dollar Fudge is what President Eisenhower called this recipe when his wife made it for him. I love that I found it in my Great Aunt’s handwritten recipe book, with the notation that it was “very good”.
I amped it up by sprinkling flaky Maldon salt over the top. This recipe makes a lot, almost 4 pounds of fudge. You can cut the recipe in half. I also encourage you to get creative with add-ins and types of chocolate. How will make this fudge your own?
