“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 great deal of time. It also results in a smooth texture that delicious flavor. One pointer is ALOT easier to work with making one batch of fudge, and not a double batch as this recipe is scaled for. If you're trying this for the first time, divide it in half, and then go at it.



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



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. Save yourself the time and trouble.
