Chocolate Cheese Fudge

Total Time:
25 min
Prep:
15 min
Cook:
10 min

Yield:
6 to 8 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound Velveeta cheese, sliced
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, pecans, walnuts
  • 2 (16-ounce) boxes confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
Directions

Spray lightly the bottom of a 9 by 2-inch square pan with a nonstick spray.

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the cheese and butter together, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and add the vanilla and nuts.

In a large bowl sift together the sugar and cocoa. Pour the cheese mixture into the sugar and cocoa mixture and stir until completely mixed. The candy will be very stiff.

Using your hands, remove candy from bowl and press evenly and firmly into pan. Because of the amount of butter in this recipe, pat the top of the candy with a paper towel to remove the excess oil. Place pan in refrigerator until candy is firm.

To serve candy, cut into squares.

I have to wonder if this recipe would get so many good reviews if it were presented by anyone but "Saint Paula." Because my family tried it once, and it was so bad -- the taste wasn't too horrible, but the sticky, sludgey, plastic texture was literally gag-inducing -- I mean SO bad, it reached a level of comedy! We still joke about threatening each other with the dreaded "velveeta fudge" as a gift (like a lump of coal in a Christmas stocking for naughty children), when we're joking around with each other and being ornery. It's been years, and we still laugh about it! So I guess the one star is for the entertainment value. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a recipe my mother always made growing up. After she passed and we moved her recipe book got lost and I am so glad I was able to find this recipe to bring back some old wonderful memories of her! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Outstanding. Easy to make and the best tasting fudge I ever ate. It's rich but cut in small squares. First time I made this fudge, no one wanted to try, they said cheese!, but after they tried, just loved it. Had to print out recipes for them. Thanks Paula! You're the One! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I wouldn't have believed it until I tried it. So good and so smooth. And a big hit with grandkids even after I told them it had cheese in it - an unexpected treat for cheese lovers. And a bit of nostalgia for me. Velveeta cheese was a staple in our home when growing up. Thank you, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I really dont know were you got this our family has been making this for years. My grandmother showed me how to make this in 1980 and she had it for years before that I am sure.

Too good. It melted in the mouth, and the stomach did not mind how much you put in. Therefore you could eat the pan and not feel stuffed. How your clothes fit days later is another matter. LOL item not reviewed by moderator and published
great! I used a little less butter, though... item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was easy to follow, and the fudge came out perfect. I see some people complaining about a cheesy taste. Perhaps it has something to do with the cocoa powder they're using. I used Nestle, and it came out great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought I would try this recipe after the high ratings. Boy were we disappointed! I will stick with my more complicated but truly delicious recipe that has been passed down through the family. The consistency was too hard and the taste was absolutely awful!! Steer clear from this Paula Deen recipe and try a different one! item not reviewed by moderator and published
yes- it was extremely easy to make, but it had a horrible aftertaste of salty cheese, i added more sugar and but it just would not go away. if im going to indulge in something as unhealthy as this (2 STICKS of butter, 2 BAGS of sugar!) it better be worth it- and this was not worth it at all. paula's hilarious, but i've just decided that her recipe's just aren't for me item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it with cream cheese, as Jennifer suggested. Thanks, Jennifer. I don't like velveeta at all. I was a little bit worried about what Donna said, but to my surprise, it was a breeze to melt the cheese and butter. First, I softened the cream cheese in the microwave, two times at 15 secs, then, I PUT THE BUTTER ON THE STOVE AT VERY LOW TEMPERATURE (3) I dont' have gas stove. I wisked when it was almost all heated. It took me like about 3 or 4 minutes to reach a very creamy state. After that, it was very easy to put all together. The next time I'll use less sugar though, the less is more for me and my family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was very skeptical about this with the velveeta and all but after reading so many great reviews decided I had to try and I'm glad I did. I love this fudge! It is rich like others have said, it has great texture, and unlike some other reviewers, I did not detect any odd aftertaste or any weird smell, and I am pregnant right now so the nose works just fine. I used the tips of Dawn in Hackettstown, NJ which was very helpful, thank you Dawn, for describing the stages of consistency as you heat the butter and cheese. I'm sure it wouldn't have turned out otherwise. And thank you Paula for an easy, tasty treat to share with the family! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have any velveeta on hand, so I used an 8 oz. brick of cream cheese instead. It took a while for the butter and cream cheese to come together, but it eventually did with a whisk on the stove over a medium low flame. I mixed it in to the sugar and cocoa in my stand mixer- that worked great, but I did end up adding about another 1/3 cup of powdered sugar- it was a bit loose compared to Paula's video. (Also less greasy on the top!) This fudge is still a little too sweet for me, but not as sicky sweet as the marshmallow creme recipe I usually make, and less grainy (and no bad aftertaste). If you can find Dutched cocoa, use it- it's hard to come by in a regular grocery store, but tastes more chocolatey. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this today with some dried cherries that were labeled Cherry Pie flavored and left out the nuts because my family isn't that crazy about them and it was FANTASTIC. I added the fruit to the hot mixture to plump them a little. I like this version better than the PB one though they're both wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The key to this fantastic fudge is having everything measured out and ready to go, also the blending of the butter and cheese on medium heat. The mixture will go through different phases. You must stir constantly and keep scraping the bottom of the pan so the cheese doesn?t burn. Once they are both melted it will start to look like it?s separating, keep stirring quickly. Then it will start to look ?brainy?, keep stirring and finally it will smooth out to look like pudding. It will take several minutes to get to the "pudding" phase. Remove from the heat then add the vanilla and nuts. The rest is easy. Once in the pan you can use cookie cutters and cut out shapes like stars or Christmas trees, noting too intricate. You can also place the fudge on waxed paper on top of a cookie sheet too and then place in fridge to cool. Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this recipe for 20 years, we call it Aunt Peach's Velveeta Fudge and my mother-in-law asks me to make it every Thanksgiving. I've found that Paula's directions are different and are fool-proof. (Aunt Peach's directions were not because it called for adding cocoa directly to melted mixture while on heat-this doesn't work as well as mixing it with the powdered sugar). For those readers who haven't had any luck with this recipe, make sure you have your measurements right. A big bag of p.sugar (32 oz) or two 16 oz. boxes and a quarter of the 2 lb. box of Velveeta only. It's easy to get confused on the cheese. It is delicious with walnuts and after reading some of the reviews I'm planning on trying a few other versions--namely the orange extract/zest idea... Good Luck! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Incorrectly named, as velveeta is not really cheese... item not reviewed by moderator and published
With a 5-star Paula Deen recipe I assumed this would be a slam dunk ... WRONG! This is just a terrible recipe, I have no idea why it has 5 stars but wanted to warn everyone NOT to make this. Just stay away! The "fudge" smells like a big block of stinky velveeta cheese, a terrible smell that no amount of delicious chocolate can hide. No amount of mind control can make you forget that its full of melted fake cheese, either. Don't waste your money or time on this recipe. Paula's recipes are mostly perfect, but this one greatly misses the mark. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Try roasting the nuts before adding. It's pure bliss. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best Fudge recipe I have ever come accross and I've made and eaten alot of fudge... I have discovered that this works best using brand name Veleeta, the cheaper just doesnt cut it, and has a funky after taste.... also with the peanut butter one you have to use brand name, Jiff or Peter Pan... the cheap is just to nasty tasting.... I also took this recipe and changed it a liittle and make an almond, white fudge, and peppermint for Christmas, I've also done it with Orange and Strawberry too, you switch out the Cocoa for the flavor you want, and you may also have to switch the flaovring too like the Almond one I used Almond extract, and chopped Almonds and the orange use orange extract and orange peel for extra flare. using the bases of Veleeta and powdered sugar you can create your own line of fudge. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've tried this recipe twice and have failed both times. The first time I didn't sift the sugar and cocoa together so it was very lumpy. It tasted horrible. I just tried it again and it turned out bad for the second time. I could actually pour it into the pan so it wasn't firm at all. Only reason I tried it was because the peanut butter version is wonderful!! I get rave reviews every time I make it. Somebody please help me and tell me what I could be doing wrong! Thank you for any help you could give me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks to Paula for a great recipe but I must say that the only reason this turned out so good was by reading the reviews that people took the time to discuss on how things turned out for them and then how to correct the issue. I have made a few recipes from this site and I have read all the reviews and taken notes on what should be done to make it work. So thanks to all of you who go out of the way to make sure things go better me. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The texture is so creamy, and it doesn't at all resemble the microwave, easy varieties! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I enjoyed trying this recipe. I agree with other reviewers that you need to keep the "secret" ingredient "secret" from your guests. It is hard for some people to wrap their brain around the concept of "cheese fudge." Actually, I think the velveeta provides creaminess and a smooth texture. It is also a snap to prepare. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I've had some disaster situations with fudge, so it was a great relief to find a recipe that did not call for something called the "soft ball method" which I still haven't figured out. It's not the most incredible fudge I've ever had, but it's pretty darn good, especially considering the lack of work that went into it. A few tips: make sure you stir the butter/cheese constantly, or else you will have to pick cooked parts out of your mix as I did. Also, be sure to use a big mixing bowl and get ready to sweat a little bit unless you're using a stand mixer. Thanks, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The texture of this fudge is closer to store bought than any fudge I've ever made. It's creamy and smooth and doesn't have that grainy texture that I always ended up with in home-made fudge. However, the taste is slightly off. It kind of leaves an after taste in your mouth. Since this is so much easier and quicker than traditional fudge, I'm willing to overlook that. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Almost every fudge recipe says it's simple and easy! Well, I cook and bake and do all sorts of kitchen gifts, but just never found a fudge recipe worht the trouble when it never came out right anyway! I've wanted to make fudge gifts for years and finally tried it this past Christmas, determined that I would somehow master a technize...somehow! After 3 abysmal failures, I decided this recipe was my last ditch effort at candy. Thank goodness I wasn't put off by the cheese! Don't let it scare you - it tempers the sweetness and creates a smooth texture without a hint of cheesy taste! No one will ever know! This is incredibly simple, quick and tastes amazing. Even my mother-in-law, a great cook herself and a rare fudge or sweet eater says this is the best fudge she ever tried and she'll eat it again! WHEW! Between the chocolate and peanut butter versions, I prepared 20 pounds and gave some to every friend and all my family to excellent reviews - no exception. Try this one... it's a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent and creamy. Before putting it into the pan I place the fudge on a heavy duty napkin and dabbed it all around. I did this twice( 2 napkins) and when putting it into the pan I also pushed it down with another napkin. Took out a bunch of the oil and the fudge was excellent ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been a loyal fluff-fudge maker for several years running, but decided to try something new this year. People could not stop talking about how great this recipe came out, and NO ONE believed that it had Velveeta in it!! We made 6 batches for the holidays after so many people asked for it! My only recommendations would be to definitely sift the sugar, or you get lumps, and listen to the instructions and pat the top of the fudge. It was GREAT!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Since I have had chocolate cheese from a cheese shop in Wisconsin (which was out of this world), I think my anticipation for this was greater than what I actually got. While it is decent fudge, I think that I have made and have received better. I truly feel the whole ?thing? about this fudge is that it is made with Velveeta. A pro to this recipe is that it easy to make. A con is that when it does set up and if you did miss getting the excess butter off, it will leave a ?butter residue? on the fudge. Overall, I didn?t dislike the fudge. One piece though would be all that you probably would want. I probably will not be making this again. The fudge recipe on the back of a marshmallow cream jar is better. I didn?t hate it and I didn?t love it, but one time is enough for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loves fudge and my husband loves Paula Deen even more so I made this for Christmas as a surprise. I agree 100% with Kriston from Louisville, KY - she took the words right out of my mouth. "I trust nearly all of Paula Deen's recipes, so I figured I'd give this a try, especially based on the positive reviews. I'll be honest, this fudge wasn't at all gross, didn't taste of cheese and has a great texture. HOWEVER, it isn't great tasting and to me at least, there was a very, very subtle but strange taste to it. I don't know if only I noticed it because I knew it was a different fudge recipe or what, but it was a bit strange. I won't be making this particular fudge again but if you aren't afraid to give this a try and don't have much time, go for it. It's not gross but it's not the best you've eaten." item not reviewed by moderator and published

After reading several reviews I set out to solve some of the more frequently noted problems; i.e, too greasy, taste of cheese. To address the first I reduced butter to 14 T., rather than 16 and in an effort to counter any "cheesy" taste I used Hershey'd Rich, Dark cocoa. I melted the cheese and butter in a large bowl in my microwave, starting with 1 min. then 30 sec bursts, until it was melted. It looked funky, but worked just fine. I toasted the walnuts then poured the cheese mixture, vanilla and nuts into the powdered sugar mix,which I had mixed in the large bowl of my heavy duty stand mixer. Within two minutes it was well mixed, a minute or two of hand kneading and it was ready to press into my plastic wrap lined pan. No puddles of butter, a nice rich chocolate flavor I will absolutely make it again and again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

The first batch came out ok but tasting way too much like velveeta to me. It set fine and the kids I made it for liked it ok. But the Rachel Ray recipe we used last your was more successful and much easier. The second batch separated and I had to sift the butter off til we had fudge. The sifting was just too much work in an hour I sifted 4 lbs because of my double batch plus the coco and it flew everywhere. Again it tastes like velveeta. Not making this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

It ended up in the trash. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried it with an open mind, but the cocoa flavor overwhelmed everything - no hint of cheesy flavor though. I had high hopes of amazing everyone with a "surprise", but at least for me, the only surprise I got was how bad it was.

Whoever said you could taste the cheese is either lying or made the recipe wrong. There is absolutely NO taste of cheese. How could a mere 8 ounces of mild cheese shine through 2 lbs of confectioner's sugar, vanilla and a ? cup of cocoa--it's impossible!

I've experimented with the original by adding peanut butter, marshmallow creme and chopped Heath bars--all with wonderful success.
