The Million Dollar Fudge recipe has quite the reputation. You may have seen it referred to as Mamie Eisenhower's Million Dollar Fudge recipe. Since it is called Million Dollar Fudge I had to put my own special little spin on it and make it really look like a Million Dollar recipe and color it gold.



  • 6 oz semi sweet chocolate
  • 12 oz Baker's German's Sweet Chocolate
  • 7 oz jar marshmallow cream
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • gold edible glitter spray (optional)


  1. Prepare an 8 x 8 baking pan by lining it with parchment paper.
  2. Put the semi sweet chocolate, Baker's German Sweet Chocolate, marshmallow cream and vanilla extract in a bowl and set aside.
  3. In a sauce pan heat and gradually bring to a boil the sugar, butter, salt and evaporated milk.
  4. Boil for 6 minutes and do not scrape the bottom of the pot as it boils.
  5. Carefully pour the boiling sauce over the chocolate, marshmallow cream and vanilla extract in the bowl.
  6. Beat with a mixer or a wooden spoon until the chocolate has melted and the fudge is creamy.
  7. Pour the fudge into the prepared 8 x 8 inch baking pan and spread evenly in the baking pan. Allow the fudge to cool completely
  8. Once cool lift the fudge up and out of the pan by the corners of the parchment paper.
  9. Cut into 36 one inch squares.
  10. Store in an air tight container.
  11. Optional. Decorate the top of each fudge piece with melted chocolate piped into a dollar sign and dust with edible gold glitter spray.
  12. Serve in golden candy papers or gold candy boxes.
