This is one of those recipes I like to call 'easy peasy', because anyone can make it! Homemade candy, and especially fudge can be tricky. This recipe turns out great every time. It's so creamy and not overly chocolate. Here is what you will need:
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened to room temperature (do not use light or fat free)
2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
4 cups confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
Place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until it's fluffy. Add in the melted chocolate and vanilla until blended. Gradually add in the confectioner's sugar. Fold in the nuts.
Line an 8"x8" dish with buttered parchment or wax paper. Overlap it a little so you can lift the candy out once it has firmed up. Pour the fudge in the dish and smooth the top. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Lift it out of the pan with the paper. Remove the paper and cut in small squares. It's ready to serve! Now wasn't that easy peasy!!!
