Cooking with Kids...and a Recipe for Cream Cheese Fudge
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ½ cup full-fat cream cheese
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 level tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chipps
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8-inch square baking pan and wax paper
  1. Lay the cake pan on a sheet of wax paper and draw around it. Then cut out the square just inside the line.
  2. Butter the bottom and sides of the pan (or you can use cooking oil). Press the paper into the bottom of the pan then butter the top of the paper.
  3. Put softened cream cheese into a bowl. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa through a sieve into the bowl. Mix everything well (we used our beaters).
  4. Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream cheese mixture and stir until well mixed and creamy. Spread in the pan and smooth the top with a spoon. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until the fudge is firm.
  6. Loosen the edges of the fudge then turn it out onto a cutting board and remove the wax paper.
  7. Cut the fudge into 36 squares. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate 2 more hours. EAT!
