Grandma Lee's Paradise pudding

Gail Herbest


I found this recipe in my grandmothers little notebook. she passed away in 1960's and the recipes are dated in the 1940, so its an old one for sure, I had no Idea what it would turn out like but thought I would give it a try.
I'm not sure why its called Pudding" it tastes a little like a s'more I may just have to add chocolate to it next time. I will write the directions as she has them written and then I will add the revisions I took.I thought it would be fun to share.

10 Min


graham crackers (save out five )
1/2 lb
marshmallows, cut up
1 1/2 c
chopped dates
1 c
chopped nutmeats (i used walnuts)
1 c
evaprated milk, sweetened to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Roll 5 graham crackers and set aside to roll the pudding in.
Roll 20 graham crackers fine
add dates. marshmallow, and nut meats stir in the evaporated milk
Put the powdered 5 graham crackers on a board and lay the mixture on it-form a loaf
put wax paper in a loaf pan and place pudding in, patting all the crumbs in well. set away to let harden
for best results make a day before
To serve lift from pan and cut into desired slices serve with whipped cream
I used mini marshmallows, and to sweeten the evaporated milk I used about 3T of sugar and a tsp of vanilla, I also ran a little short on graham crackers to roll the pudding in so crushed a few vanilla wafers, I am not sure where I was suppose to set it aside to harden, so I stuck mine in the refrigerator.
