Woman Shares Fudge Recipe on Her Headstone


Have you ever had someone tell you, " Before I die, I'll give you that recipe." Here's a case where a woman is sharing a recipe AFTER her death...

Kathryn Andrews made great fudge, SO great, in fact that when the Logan, Utah native passed away at the age of 97, she also passed on a unique – and special gift to all – the recipe for her signature fudge! It’s embedded on the headstone that she shares with her husband, Wade, in the Logan City Cemetery. Here’s the recipe:

  • Melt two squares of chocolate and two tablespoons of butter on low heat
  • Stir in one cup of milk and bring to a boil
  • Add three cups of sugar, one teaspoon vanilla and a pinch of salt
  • Then? Cook to softball stage, pour on marble slab, cool & beat & eat.

Also written on the monument? "Wherever she goes, there's laughter." And apparently, general goodness. Daughter Janice Johnson says her mom was all about spreading light – and fudge. "She really loved people," Johnson says. "She would write poetry, and she would take fudge whenever people got together."

Apparently, she also kept Tootsie Rolls in her purse if she ran into kids having a rough time. After her husband passed away in 2000, Miss Kay, as she was known, wanted to leave something for others and the recipe was what she chose. Images of the recipe have since gone viral and Janice says it’s pretty sweet. She would be thrilled that people can have a taste of her recipe,” Janice adds. “I think she would love it.”
