Chocolate Microwave Fudge with Velveeta

Microwave fudge with Velveeta is delicious with pecans inside or plain. Made without condensed milk with butter instead you will love this cheese fudge that doesn’t taste savory at all! A surprisingly delicious easy and quick dessert for the holidays.

Fudge with Velveeta

Microwave chocolate fudge is so easy to make. When you take a bite of this you will never guess there was anything odd inside, at all. If you recently made our Microwave Pumpkin Fudge and want to try other flavors this should be your next treat. (affiliate links present)

Microwave Velveeta Fudge

We have used a lot of crazy things to make this sweet. Cookie Mix Fudge was first on the list and not quite as surprising but still not what you would expect as an ingredient. With that you can use any flavor you like to make a bunch of different flavors. Use spiced for the Fall or white to add colorful sprinkles.

If you wanted to make our Microwave Peppermint Fudge we use a bag of chocolate chips to make that one. Somewhat predictable I think amongst the others. We like to crush candy canes on the top of that one and would be a nice touch with this one too for Christmas time.

Velveeta Fudge with Cocoa Powder

As for the toppings those are all over the place. I mentioned crushed candies above which is fun. Sprinkles work to add some flare and larger nuts adds a bit more texture. Another fun idea is to lay pretzels on top to add a savory sweet element to it. Makes it easy to slice too with 1 on the top of each piece.

This is How to Make Caramel with Condensed Milk too, which you could drizzle all over the top before hardening or after it has solidified in the fridge. I mean the two flavors go so well together right? During the holidays it is a don’t look at the calories time of year anyway. 😉 You’ll need;

  • Stick butter unsalted
  • 8 oz velveeta cubed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Powdered sugar
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 -1 cups chopped pecans or walnuts (and some whole on top) are optional.

Cheese Fudge

If you wanted to make this as White Chocolate Fudge in the Microwave you could without the cocoa but it wouldn’t be quite as successful. I’d follow the version above in the link for that style. Ok so get out a 8×8 square pan and line it with parchment paper so we can get started;

  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt processed cheese and butter together in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval, until they are completely melted and smooth.
  • This will take 1-2 minutes, depending on your microwave’s power. Be sure to stir well to combine the butter and cheese.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract to the melted butter and Velveeta mixture. In a separate bowl, sift together the confectioners sugar and cocoa powder to remove any lumps.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the melted cheese mixture, stirring continuously until everything is combined. The mixture will be thick and slightly crumbly at this stage.
  • If you’re using nuts, fold them into the fudge mixture until evenly distributed.
  • Transfer mixture to the prepared pan. Use a spatula or plastic wrap and your hands to press it evenly into the pan.
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until it’s firm and set. Once it has set, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift it out of the pan. Place it on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut it into small squares or rectangles.

Your chocolate Velveeta fudge made with cheese is ready to be served. Like our Grandma Old Fashioned Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe you should store any leftover fudge in an airtight container wrapped in plastic wrap individually too on the countertop for best results.

If you wanted to know How to Make Velveeta Cheese yourself you would need to do this the night before ideally to solidify. I have a link to buy it online below in the recipe card too, either way works.

What does chocolate cheese fudge taste like?

You would never guess that there was Velveeta in fudge if you include this ingredient, it tastes like chocolate instead. It is a surprising ingredient that helps to thicken the batter but not make it too savory, just enough. It is really delicious, you should try our Velveeta fudge recipe here.

Does cheese fudge need to be refrigerated?

It is best once hardened to wrap tightly with plastic wrap and then store in an airtight container. Both will keep it from drying out. Then store on the counter so it doesn’t dry out.

For another holiday yum we have another layered version with another favorite flavor too. You have to try our Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars but be careful as they are quite addictive.

Instructions

  • Line an 8×8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides. This will make it easier to remove the fudge later.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter and Velveeta cheese together in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until they are completely melted and smooth. This may take 1-2 minutes, depending on your microwave's power. Be sure to stir well to combine the butter and cheese.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract to the melted butter and Velveeta mixture. In a separate bowl, sift together the powdered sugar and cocoa powder to remove any lumps.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the melted cheese mixture, stirring continuously until everything is combined. The mixture will be thick and slightly crumbly at this stage.
  • If you're using nuts, fold them into the fudge mixture until evenly distributed. Transfer the fudge mixture to the prepared baking pan. Use a spatula or plastic wrap and your hands to press it evenly into the pan.
  • Refrigerate the fudge for 1 – 2 hours or until it's firm and set. Once the fudge has set, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift it out of the pan. Place it on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut it into small squares or rectangles.
  • Your cheese fudge is ready to be served. Store any leftover fudge in an airtight container wrapped in plastic wrap individually too on the countertop for best results.
