White Fudge

White Fudge


Since Christy is out of the country, I've added an extra recipe for the white chocolate category.  I told her that I would try to fill in for her but that's a hard job.  My friend Karen gave me this recipe and her friend Keith gave it to her.  It is a very quick and easy recipe and the fudge tastes really good.  They are very rich and you can taste both the cream cheese and chocolate in them.  This would make a great gift to go in a cookie tin for a gift exchange or served at a lady's meeting or potluck.  The list goes on and on......they're good taken anywhere!

8 oz cream cheese, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
12 oz white chocolate chips or bark
3/4 cup chopped nuts

Beat the cream cheese with mixer.  Gradually add the powdered sugar.  Add the vanilla and mix until smooth.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave one minute at a time at a medium power setting, stirring after each minute.  Do not overcook.  Add this to the first mixture and beat until smooth.  Stir in nuts.  Spread into a greased 8 x 8 pan or a larger pan for thinner fudge. 

Chill until firm and then cut into small squares.
