i make half-batches of this (with 1tsp vanilla) and i have a few suggestions as well. as another reviewer suggested i always sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa then add the cheese mixture to the dry ingredients. i also use 1/2c walnut pieces instead of the peanuts. i spray an 8"x8" or 9"x9" pan with nonstick spray then press the fudge firmly into it to cool. sometimes i find it necessary to blot excess butter or grease from the top with paper towels. by the way i have used lowfat velveeta with no problems! and one last thing: a variation i love is to substitute 1tsp cherry extract for the vanilla (again in half batches) and 1/2c dried cherries chopped for the nuts -- it's always a hit for me!

This is an excellent recipe. It makes a very smooth creamy and chewy fudge. It reminds me of fudge I've gotten from bakeries. It does makes huge amounts so halve it unless you're cooking it for a big party. It works best if you sift your confectioners sugar and cocoa to get rid of lumps. It's easy to make but does require lots of stirring. It gets stiff very quickly so I wound up kneading it with my hands. I took it to a party and everyone raved over it. I do think it's best not to tell people what is in it until they've made their mind up about it. Some people are very suggestible and if you tell them it has cheese in it the cheese will be all that they taste. Otherwise you really don't notice the cheese. I used Velveeta and it worked nicely. I also substituted 2 cups chopped pecans for the peanuts and I thought that was about right. Read More

We have made this for years -- we never cook it. We simply put it all in a big bowl and either mix it with our hands or use the mixer with a bread hook. Use no-salt butter and make sure everything is room temperature. I use half dry milk and half powdered sugar. It's not so sickly sweet that way. Make sure your dry milk is very finely granulated if you do this. Also yummy with lots and lots of chopped pecans in it. Delicious! Read More

This makes a huge amount of very delicious fudge. I wish I had halved the recipe because it took a very large mixing bowl and quite a while to mix in all that powdered sugar (I actually burned up the motor on my cheap hand mixer) so I recommend a large table mixer with a dough hook. The texture is to die for though! Definitely worth it and you can NOT taste the Velveeta. Read More

This recipe didn't go over so well at the family get-together. Even the kids didn't eat it. It was very smooth although rubbery in texture. Read More

I was very skeptical about trying this but found it to interesting to pass up. I made it and tried it myself first and was amazed at how good it was so I took it to my family's get together for Christmas and everyone loved it. I only made 1/2 the recipe and put it in an 8x8 dish - also left out the peanuts. It was the easiest and probably the creamiest fudget I ever made - I'm keeping this one! Read More

I followed this recipe to the letter but it failed. It was a big gooey mess. I have eaten this fudge before and it was delicious so perhaps I did something wrong. It is a cold day here in Texas and the pans I used I sprayed with PAM to keep it from sticking. I left it in the 'frig for 2 hours and it still would not hardened. So back to regular fudge for me.
