Velveeta Fudge

2 lbs powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 sticks butter
1/2 lb velveeta cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups chopped pecans

Mix sugar and cocoa together. Melt butter and Velveeta together. Add vanilla and pecans. Add sugar cocoa mix in this. Spread in buttered 8x8 glass dish and let cool then cut in squares.


Jo I will try it out Thank you so much. I am sorry I got to the post late I have been in the woods again :mrgreen: That sounds like a great recipe. I am always willing to try something with cheese :D


Now that's funny. You might as well have said I am always willing to try air. :clap: :clap: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


True :lol2: :mrgreen:

Knock, knock, knocking on heavens door. :lol: :lol: Good stuff Jo, but after my second piece last night I told my wife she should take half the batch to work for the staff to enjoy. Between the two of us we would never finish it before it goes bad.

all in moderation. It would be an easy recipe to split in half.

:lol: after two pieces my sweet tooth was fulfilled. I have learned that with my limited cooking skills I need to follow the original recipe very closely, than I can make adjustments to it. :? Thinking maybe black walnuts next time.

I did ask my wife if she was taking some into the staff this morning, her reply was, "heck no! Maybe after the weekend." I guess she likes it too.

I had that Velveeta fudge one time from a co-worker. I didn't think I would like it, but it was very good. Hate to think how fattening it is.

If you like a softer fudge, I bring you....

World's Easiest Fudge

1 12 oz package chocolate chips - your choice of semi sweet or milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla
chopped nuts - optional

Put the chips and sweetened condensed milk in a microwavable bowl. Nuke for 30 seconds, stir, repeat this cycle until chocolate is fully melted and blended together with the milk. (Or you can do this in a double boiler if you prefer). Stir in vanilla, nuts, then press into 8 X 8 pan. (I line mine with wax paper) Chill, cut, enjoy.

If this is too soft for you, add a little more chocolate. I think when this recipe was devised, chocolate chips were still 16 oz to the package.

Mocows that sounds good. I'm not much on sweets. For me to gorge myself on fudge constitutes my eating two 1"x1" pieces then I'm done for the year.
