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.

How to Make Grandma Lee's Paradise pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll 5 graham crackers and set aside to roll the pudding in.
  2. Roll 20 graham crackers fine
  3. add dates. marshmallow, and nut meats stir in the evaporated milk
  4. Put the powdered 5 graham crackers on a board and lay the mixture on it-form a loaf
  5. 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
  6. To serve lift from pan and cut into desired slices serve with whipped cream
  7. 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.
