Dianne's Recipe Page. Chocolate Cheese Fudge

The following recipe is a GREAT fudge that I've made for many years, and is always a hit. You will enjoy the rich, creamy confection. Awesome as a gift, too!

Chocolate Cheese Fudge

1/2 lb. Velveeta Cheese, chunked
2 sticks of butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract (I prefer double strength)
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
2 16 oz. packages of powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder

Lightly spray a 9x9 inch or 8x8 inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt cheese and butter together, stirring constantly until smooth.

In a large bowl sift sugar and cocoa together. Then combine the wet with the dry ingredients, stirring until well mixed. Batter will be stiff.

Remove from bowl to pan, pressing firmly and evenly. Pat the top of the candy for excess oil from the butter. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares.

You will not taste the cheese. It only serves to give the candy a wonderful consistency and very rich flavor.
