Questions & Replies

  1. I just made this and have a few questions. Was I suppose to keep it on the stove burner the whole time I was adding the sugar? Also, it was really hard to add ALL the sugar! I could hardly get it to mix the last portion. I took it off the burner after I melted the butter and velveta. It is soo sweet!


  1. I have had to make this fudge dozens of times since the first time. It is so easy, fast and tastes wonderful.
  2. You would never ever guess it was made with cheese! I sent some into my husband’s work, they devoured it.

  3. This has been in the fridge for hrs and although I buttered the sheet pan it stuck. Then I tried to get it out anyway and it is still too soft to get out without squishing it. Followed recipe to t. How long does it take to dry out before I can take it out of the pan. I have had 2 shoulder surgeries so you can imagine how hard this was for me as well as money invested This was going to be gifted. It can fail in my opinion. Taste ok
  4. This recipe is really sweet, but it came out great! I cut the recipe in half. I also left out the nuts (I'm a chocolate purist :-P), and did the melting stove-top. But it was super easy to make, and it poured into my pan and formed perfectly. I didn't grease the pan (no need the fudge is so oily). Great easy recipe; thanks for sharing! UPDATE: the photo I uploaded shows just HOW GREASY this fudge is when it "cures". I blame the Velveeta itself for that. BUT it was a hit at my work party and everyone liked it. I did notice, however, that, to me, I could taste the "shortcut" flavor. It didn't quite have the made-from-scratch essence. But for quick fudge, it was good.
  5. To me fudge is way to sweet!But, everyone in my family loves it!I really think that this one is one of my favorites to make.It is so easy.I made it this year and everybody asked me for the recipe.I defintly think this one is a keeper!


  1. Just a note: Tried the suggestion of substituting cream cheese for Velveeta, which isn't available here, if you are looking for a lovely cake frosting - give it a try...otherwise, steer clear of using cream cheese as a substitute!
