Cream Cheese Fudge

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

• 6 tablespoon (3 oz) cream cheese
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• 1-1/2 ounces unsweetened chocolate squares, melted and cooled
• 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
• dash of salt
• 1/4 cup nuts, chopped and toasted (any candies or crushed cookies or fruit or the below fudge)

Preparation:

Butter a pan. Cream cheese. Gradually add powdered sugar. Add chocolate and mix. Stir in vanilla, salt and nuts. Spread in prepared pan. Chill until firm. Keep in the refrigerated.

Now if I’m making Raspberry cheesecake fudge, I make the above first, then I make this one and put it on top!
Raspberry Fudge

Ingredients:

• 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (or use white)
• 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
• 2 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/8 tsp salt
• 1/8 cup cream
• 1/2 cup seedless raspberry preserves (or any fruit, peach, blueberry and strawberry is awesome)
• 2 cups white chocolate chips
• 1/8 tsp lemon juice
• red food coloring (optional)

Preparation:

1. Prepare an 8x8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine the semi-sweet chocolate chips and the condensed milk in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring after every minute. Stir until the mixture is completely homogenous and smooth.

3. Add the vanilla and salt and stir until combined. Pour into the prepared pan and refrigerate until this layer is mostly set, about 1 hour.

4. Once this layer is set, prepare the raspberry layer: combine the cream, white chocolate chips, and raspberry preserves in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring after every 45 seconds and taking care that the chocolate does not burn. Stir until smooth, then add the lemon juice and a few drops of red food coloring, if desired.

5. Allow the raspberry-white chocolate mixture to cool to lukewarm, then pour it over the chocolate fudge layer and smooth it in an even layer using a knife or an offset spatula.

6. Return the fudge to the refrigerator to set, about 2-3 hours. To serve, cut into 1-inch squares.
