We’ve been making this recipe for years. It’s one of the candies that ALWAYS gets made at Christmas. There’s a secret ingredient that you may or may not want to tell people about… I’ve always gotten mixed reactions when people find out what makes the fudge so good!
You will need:
1/2 lb. (2 sticks) of butter
1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese (this would be the secret ingredient!)
2 lbs. powdered sugar
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of cocoa
1/2 tsp. of vanilla
Heat the butter and cheese over medium heat until melted and smooth. Don’t let the mixture come to a boil, though! Using a double boiler may help with this part. Once the mixture is smooth, remove from heat.
Immediately blend in the sugars, cocoa, and vanilla with a mixer. It’s important to do this step right away so the sugar has a chance to dissolve in the warm butter mixture. Spread in a 9×9 inch pan lined with parchment or wax paper. Place in the refrigerator to set.
Once the fudge has set, it’s ready to be cut and served! This recipe is really easy and seriously SO yummy. We used to call it Velveeta Fudge but it seemed to be a turn-off for some people!
