Handwritten Recipe Wednesday: Fabulous Fudge

Do you have a stack of handwritten recipes and clippings somewhere? Dig it out, and start scanning them in! Type each one in as well in case you can't read them. Here's one from one of my recipe box collections. I know it's a little crooked - I had some trouble with the scanner this morning. Here is the recipe exactly as written:

Fabulous Fudge
1 - 14 1/2 oz. condensed milk
4 1/2 C. sugar
Place in lg. pan, stir, bring to boil _ 15 min. Stir occasionally, place in lg. bowl the following
1 6 oz. pkg. milk choco pieces.
1 12 oz. choco chips
3 sticks margarine
1 9 oz. jar marshmallow creme.
Pour boiled mixture over choco mixture stir till blended.  Add 2 tsp. vanilla, 2 C nuts.  Pour in greased pans.
5#

I'm not sure what the 5# is - 5 servings? Still this does sound fabulous. It's in different writing than on the cards in the rest of the box, so perhaps someone gifted the owner of the box with this recipe.
How many of you have stacks of handwritten recipes somewhere in your basement? Let's get them out before rainy season!

Sounds like 5# of fudge. As soon as I saw the word fudge, I was hooked. Mmmm

OMG> this is my husband's aunts 'secret recipe'! it is TO DIE FOR good.. we have made it with semisweet and milk choco bits.. milk chocolate is preferrable! adding pecans or walnuts is a good thing too!

I have a bunch of recipes where I figured out that it (#) means pounds... so if that is true here; this recipes makes five pounds of fudge.

I've been working on scanning all my grandmother's handwritten recipes to save for future generations. It's been so fun trying to decipher her recipe shorthand.

I'm hosting a cookbook giveaway on my blog and would love for you to check it out. Mommy, The Coupon Hunter
