Dairy State Fudge Recipe

Dairy State Fudge Recipe

I grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, so it's only natural I have a lot of recipes that use dairy ingredients. Our farm also had a lot of hickory trees, so we always made this fudge with hickory nuts. I make this candy nearly every Christmas. You'll find it's hard to eat just one piece.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:64 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pounds white candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans, walnuts or hickory nuts

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy; set aside. In the top of a double boiler, melt butter. Add almond bark; heat and stir until melted and smooth.
  • 2. Pour over the cream cheese; beat until smooth and glossy, about 7-10 minutes. Stir in nuts. Pour into a greased 9-in. square pan. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 64 pieces (about 1 inch).
