Velveeta Cheese Fudge and Bunco

I play Bunco with a group of ladies that really enjoy getting together mainly for the friendship and conversations. The game is secondary but we do enjoy the laughter that comes with 'BUNCO'. Tonight we are having the Christmas gathering and we are having dinner. Everyone is to bring a dish so the hostess doesn't have as much to do.

But when do you think I remembered this? Yep... about 5 minutes ago! And I'm supposed to take a dessert. There is not time to bake a cake, pie, or even a yummy pudding of some kind. I could cheat and stop by the grocery store and buy a ready made cheesecake and add my own topping but that wouldn't be quiet right. So I decided to make fudge..........

Well at least a 'version' of fudge. I'm going to make Paula Deen's Cheese Fudge. They say it is super easy, extremely creamy, surprising good and made with VELVETA CHEESE. A few comments on the recipe did mention that it has a 'strange after taste'...... hmmmmmmmm

So would you try CHEESE FUDGE?

Chocolate Cheese Fudge

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

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 love wierd food combinations.
Ann, be sure to come back here and tell us how that fudge went over. If you say it's good, I'll put it in my "Strange Recipes from Alabama People" file with Jim's Koolickle recipe.

I made some pulled pork last week cooked in rootbeer. It was really good.
