You don't have to cook this. Leave the butter and cheese out until room temperature. Put everything in a bowl, mix it with your hands until well combined and press into your pan. I also use half confectioner's sugar and half dry milk. It cuts down on the calories and not so sweet. I have made it this way for 40 years and got the recipe from my mom who made it years before that. It's a family favorite and given as gifts a lot. Our favorite by far. (Don't be afraid to double the recipe. It works up great. If you have a mixer with a bread hook you can also do it that way.)
I made this fudge earlier today and although it took a while with constant stirring for the cheese and butter to come together, it was still easy to make and turned out delicious. I will definitely make this again.
a perfect fudge recipe! I followed this exactly..the only tip i have is i cut some wax paper and put it on top of the fudge in the pan & used the back of a spoon to smooth it out..bravo Sharon123, will be made again this Holiday season
If I would of ate this without making it, I would of never have guessed this had Velveeta cheese in it. This was really good. I made this for company, I tried one piece and was impressed, Can't wait for my company to try this.
I was 4 oz short on the sugar, but this is so sweet you won't miss it. I could probably have left out even more. This fudge is so easy and has a nice nexture. Love the pecans!
Have been making this fudge for over twenty years and it is one of the best!!
I would have never believed it if I hadn't made it myself. This was absolutely wonderful and so easy. You would never know that there is velveeta cheese in them. Thanks Sharon for a wonderful recipe.
I was also raising eyebrows at this. Velveeta cheese and chocolate? This is the best easy fudge recipe I've ever used. I took it to work to do the taste test - they raved about it and I didn't tell them how it was made until after I heard the comments. They could not believe it. I won't go back to the Marshmallow cream ever again!
I've been making a recipe very simliar to this for years. It is the best fudge ever!!
I had to try this, as I was curious to find out how it would taste! DH peered into the saucepan while I was melting the cheese and butter together, and asked me what I was cooking. When I told him it was fudge, he raised his eyebrows at me in disbelief, and walked away! Well, after allowing it to cool and firm up in the refrigerator, I've just sampled a slice; it's great! I can't taste the Velveeta at all, and I don't think anyone would guess the 'secret ingredient'! After melting the cheese and butter in the saucepan, I let my stand mixer do the rest of the work. After pressing the candy into the pan, I leveled it with a spatula. I did pat the top of the fudge with a paper towel, but there really wasn't much excess butter to mop up. It only took about an hour and a half to firm up in the refrigerator. I can't wait for DH to try this! Yum!
