The name might suggest a stunt dish topped with Swarovski crystals, but Mamie Eisenhower’s Million Dollar Fudge has slightly more humble origins as a 1950s American favourite, developed by the mother of America’s 34th president. Thankfully the dollar value in the name merely describes the delicious and rich result, not the ingredient list! Regardless, the recipe now sits in the Eisenhower Presidential Library. At Chez Eisenhower it was a family classic served as a brunch dish before Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. We’ll take it at any time of the year!
