I made these for my sister's Christmas party last Friday. I thought they turned out so cute. They are very yummy, but very rich. I got the recipe from Paula Dean. The fudge has Velveeta in it. Weird huh? Then you dip them in caramel and I covered them with chopped peanuts. YUM!
Chocolate Cheese Fudge
1/2 pound Velveeta cheese, sliced
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts
Two 16-ounce packages confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
Directions: Melt cheese and butter together over medium heat in saucepan. Remove from heat, add vanilla and nuts. Sift together sugar and cocoa in large bowl. Add cheese mixture. Use hands for final mixing! Remove candy from bowl with hands and roll into balls. Add skewers. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and enjoy!
Tonight we are going to my sister's house for dinner. We are having a 7 course meal. I am in charge of the appetizers. It is always fun for Ryley to go there. Her and her cousin, Abby, have a lot of fun playing dress up. Abby has all of these really cute dress up shoes from Costco. I thought that would be a great present for Ryley for Christmas, but when I went to look, wouldn't you know they didn't have them. I was totally bummed out. I think I will continue looking through out the year though. I think she got 6 pair for $18!
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!! I can't wait for Scott to open a particular present I got him!! And I can't wait for Ryley to see her presents. She got a tricycle that we have to put together tonight!! YEAH!!
