Philly Fudge

Philly Fudge created by Midwest Maven

Fudge is not a twentieth-century invention, but fast fudge is. This recipe, an adaptation of the famous uncooked fudge developed by Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, became popular shortly after World War II, is as foolproof as it is fast. And it never turns gritty. From American Century Cookbook.

    My Dad had a printed Kraft advertisement that had different flavor variations for this delicious fudge. I especially want to find the cherry version. I think it was just chopped dried cherries instead of the chocolate, and almond extract instead of vanilla. Does anybody have it?

    mine didnt set up ever. i left it overnight and even put it in the freezer. .. but i ran out of powdered sugar for most of my 4th cup that could have been the problem. but it is soo smooth and great flavor. we just ate it with spoons.

    Very quick and easy recipe to make. Mine didn't set up at first, but I do think it needs the overnight to set up properly, as directed. Mine also seemed a bit lighter in color than the other photo, not sure why as I followed the recipe exactly - but it was lovely never the less. Thanks for posting a great recipe, Bev!! ** Made for Bevergae Tag 2007**
