I’ll be heading to a party tonight and I’ll be bringing my version of cheese fudge. Because I make it with Velveeta cheese, I call them Tailer Truffles. This is a pretty quick recipe for some very smooth and delicious fudge.
8 ounces of Kraft brand Velveeta Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product
1/2 pound (2 sticks, or 1 cup) unsalted butter
2 pounds Powdered Sugar (aka Confectioner’s Sugar)
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
Cut the Velveeta and butter into cubes and melt in a double boiler. Sift together the cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Once the butter and Velveeta are melted, stir in vanilla and nuts.
Pour fudge mixture into the cocoa and sugar. Stir thoroughly (a hand mixer can help here). Once completely mixed, pour fudge into a pan covered in aluminum foil. Let fudge set in the refrigerator before cutting.
