Your friend just made you take a bite of her signature chocolate fudge. It’s mind-blowingly rich and melts perfectly in your mouth like velvet. If she then had you guess her secret ingredient--after swearing you to secrecy, of course--it would be completely understandable for “extra butter” or “Nutella” to come out of your mouth.
Well, if she’s using this recipe, you were set up because there’s no way anyone would ever guess this unexpected ingredient. But its effects on fudge are astounding. The superstar ingredient you need to add to your batches of the sweet this year--is Velveeta. We were shocked, too.
The same thing that makes your Velveeta queso dip so irresistibly creamy and delicious does the same thing for your fudge. Confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder easily mask the slightly savory taste of the cheese in the same way that they transform cream cheese from a breakfast spread into the beloved cheesecake. Whether you add chopped nuts is entirely up to you, but this is one dessert sure to catch your neighbor’s attention at the holiday house walk.
Watch the video below for the full ingredients and simple step-by-step directions.
