I am finishing up my holiday baking and getting ready for the gauntlet of Christmas parties and dinners and present exchanging to begin. We spend Christmas Eve with my mother, Christmas morning at our home, that afternoon and evening at the inlaws, then we host a dinner for my dad the day after Christmas. Phew! It’s exhausting because it means so many desserts and dishes need to be made. Every year I scour the internet for new recipes that I haven’t tried yet. I love using my family as guinea pigs!
I found a great place to find some amazing recipes and coupons for many of the ingredients. You can Make Every Day Delicious with recipes from Kraft. I am going to make several of the recipes I found on here, but for now, I’m sharing my new favorite fudge recipe, Velveeta Fudge. Yes, you read me correctly. The same block of cheese that we all use in our favorite dips and casseroles, in fudge.
This Velveeta fudge is so creamy and easy to make, and guess what? It tastes nothing like cheese, I promise!
12oz VELVEETA, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 cup butter
1 1/2 pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER’S Unsweetened Chocolate (6 oz.), broken into pieces
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
2 pkg. (16 oz. each) powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups chopped PLANTERS Pecans or Walnuts
Cut the Velveeta into cubes and place in a microwavable bowl. Break apart the chocolate into pieces, and cut the butter into slices. Add this to the bowl with 2 Tbls of light corn syrup.
Microwave on medium power for 3 minutes. I stirred every 30 seconds to 1 minute to keep the chocolate from seizing up, which can happen if you heat it too fast or too much. Stir well.
While this was microwaving, in my stand mixer, I added 2lbs of powdered sugar. When the chocolate mixture is ready, slowly add it to the mixer while it’s on a low setting.
It will get very thick as it all incorporates with the sugar. Add in the walnuts or pecans and mix gently to incorporate.
Pour into a greased 13×9 pan and smooth the top. You can add a few nuts to the top as well.
Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until firm. Slice and serve!
The Velveeta fudge came out so yummy and creamy, I was surprised and it is going to be my go-to fudge recipe because it is so easy! You can find this and so many more yummy Kraft recipes on Walmart.com as well as coupons for many Kraft products.
