No-Cook Never-Fail Fudge

No-Cook Never-Fail Fudge


"This recipe came from a dear friend of mine. It is an unbelievably delicious fudge! This fudge has been a hit with all who have tried it. Don't let them know the ingredients until they have tasted it; they still won't believe it has cheese in it. Also, it is easier to make if the recipe is halved. Pecans can be substituted for walnuts.

I've ever only tried "sugar" fudge recipes that require heating on the stove and making sure that nothing is burning. With the cheese in this recipe, you don't have to do that, and it saves a g...

I made this once and it turned out terrible so I tried it again figuring that I had done something wrong. But no, it is just really bad. It tastes something like mac and cheese with cocoa. Sa...

I forgot in my earlier review to state you do NOT have to cook this fudge -- just mix it. Also, use no-salt butter.

This is an excellent recipe. It makes a very smooth, creamy and chewy fudge. It reminds me of fudge I've gotten from bakeries. It does makes huge amounts, so halve it unless you're cooking it...

This didn't turn out for me.The velvita cheese and the butter wouldn't mix.Made a big mess and wasted a lot of stuff.

This recipe was ok. It was very easy and quick to make but the flavor/texture was another story. I was a little bit "iffy" about the whole cheese thing, but the end product didn't really taste l...

Greasing the pan is not necessary. Like the original recipe says: Do NOT tell people the "secret" ingredient until AFTER they have tasted it. Trust me! This is an awesome recipe!! Thanks!

This fudge did come together as it should, and it hardened like fudge, but it DID taste like processed cheese. Out of 6 diners, it was nearly inedible, noone liked it and all thought it tasted ...

I have always been a failure when it came to making fudge. This receipe was so easy, and the final product is the best fudge ever! I plan to make the fudge as a "sweet" gift for friends and co-...
