Cream Cheese Fudge

      30 Servings


  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 4 cups Confectioners Sugar
  • 6 ounces Milk Chocolate, Melted
  • 1/2 cup Pistachios, Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract


  1. Beat cream cheese in a mixer until light and fluffy. Slowly add confectioner's sugar a little at a time. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Melt the chocolate in either a double boiler, or in the microwave. If using a double boiler add water to a saucepan and place over medium heat, bring a low boil, then reduce to a simmer. Place a heat proof glass bowl over top making sure the top of the bowl does not touch the top of the water. Toss the chocolate inside and allow to heat until the chocolate melts completely. If using the microwave, pop the chocolate in a glass bowl and cook on medium heat for about 1 to 2 minutes. After the first minute starting checking the chocolate every 15 seconds to ensure it does not over-cook. You want it smooth as silk.
  3. Once the chocolate is melted allow it to cool slightly, then add it to the cream cheese mixture in the mixer. Add the pistachios and vanilla extract as well. Turn mixer on slow speed, then increase to medium, mixing briefly to allow everything to come together.
  4. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper (makes removing the fudge so much easier). Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and smooth out. Place the pan in the fridge and allow to chill for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight.
  5. Remove and slice into squares. Serve with a big old fudge loving smile.
