Since January, a Brigittine community of 16 monks has been establishing itself sweetly in Oregon. The Order of the Most Holy Savior, only 10 years old now, though its forebears date to the 15th Century, is turning out six heavenly varieties of fudge and truffles galore, in order to pay the bills for the contemplative life that the monks here seek.

The fudge received the “Medallion of Excellence” from Chocolate News. American Mail Order Gourmet said that the fudge “exceeds any we’ve tasted, in­cluding homemade.”

A year in the making, the secret recipe is the result of the efforts of many brothers, says prior and order founder Brother Benedict. The ingre­dients are not a secret, however. In every instance, Brother Benedict adds, “they are the best money can buy.”

They include world famous Guittard chocolate, fresh Oregon or California walnuts, and the best in butter, cream, milk and vanilla, but no preservatives.
