In the 1950's and 1960's Clementine Paddleford had a recipe column in This Week Magazine. At one point she requested time-saving recipes from her readers. Among the deluge was this recipe for fudge. Ms. Paddleford stated that her home economist recipe testers declared this fudge the best they had ever tested - or tasted! Many of the recipes were published in the cookbook "Clementine Paddleford's Cook Young Cookbook", published in 1966, and no doubt long out of print.
