Precode Recipe 3# Dolores del Rio

Who would have thought this exotic icon was a domestic goddess as well:

Dolores del Rio - Pecan Fudge
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup bitter chocolate
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla
Stir together the sugar, chocolate, cream and salt. Cook in a saucepan over moderate heat until mixture will form a soft ball in water. Stir constantly to prevent burning. Remove from heat, add the butter, letting it melt without stirring. Let stand in a pan of cool (not cold) water until lukewarm. If it is allowed to cool too suddenly it will become “sugary.” Beat until thick. Add chopped nuts and vanilla and pour out into a tray, about half an inch thick. Put in fridge until set. Makes about twenty-four squares. Enjoy!
