My mother in law gave me this recipe. She used it at a youth camp. The children loved being able to make it themselves and they also loved to eat it afterwards. This is an easy recipe that can be made anywhere from in the car on a road trip to camping or even at home in front of a good movie. Note: this recipe may be divided into smaller portions and made in sandwich bags so that every kid has their own bag.
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1 lb powdered sugar
- 6 tablespoons hot cocoa mix or 1⁄2 cup cocoa
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 gallon ziploc bag
- Place all ingredients in the Ziploc bag. Close bag well. (You may choose to place inside an additional bag to reduce the risk of spills).
- Squish all ingredients in the bag by hand to mix. Mix until smooth (at least 10 to 15 min) -- Enjoy!
We had problems with this. Could be the ingredients weren't chilled or my amounts was off but the fudge did not thicken. Good thing I used double bags because the seal burst (I hate cheap plastic bags). It did keep the teenagers busy while driving and they didn't mind eating the chocolate goo!
The only thing I did differently was to add 1/4 t. vanilla to the bag. The kids loved it. I used my cookie scooper and got about 23 - 24 scoops per bag. Thanks for posting. 8-)
