Impossible as it seems, processed cheese spread makes a creamier, great-tasting chocolate fudge.
1 cup butter
8 ounces processed cheese spread
1/2 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
2 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
- Combine butter and processed cheese spread in the top of a double boiler. Cook over hot water until melted.
- Meanwhile, sift unsweetened baking cocoa and powdered sugar into a large bowl. Stir in the cheese mixture and vanilla; mix quickly.
- Spread in a buttered 13 x 9-inch baking dish and sprinkle chopped pecans on top. Let stand until firm then cut into 1-inch squares.
Makes 117 (1-inch) squares.
