    The recipe calls for cocoa powder. Can I use chocolate chips instead? If I can use the chips how much would I use for the recipe?

    Can I cut down on the sugar in the cheese chocolate fudge? If I can how much would you suggest that I use. I am afraid it might be to sweet.

    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.
