This delicious "White Chocolate Fudge" is one of my easy peasy recipes that anyone can make with success. When it comes to homemade candy that's a good thing, because it's not all fool proof. Here is what you will need for this fudge:
1 (12 oz.) bag of white chocolate chips
1 (8 oz.) block of cream cheese, softened to room temperature (do not use light or fat free)
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Melt the white chips in the microwave or in a double boiler on the stove. Mix with the room temperature cream cheese until smooth. Gradually stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla until combined. Fold in the nuts. You can leave the nuts out for those who might have allergies or don't care for them. The mixture will be thick.
Pour into an 8"x8" baking dish or pan that has been lined with buttered parchment paper, wax paper or nonstick foil. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 2-3 hours. Turn it out on a cutting board, remove paper or foil and cut in small squares.
