Oohh La La! Is there anything more tempting than a thick creamy piece of Cheesecake?  Well maybe just one thing.  Cheesecake Fudge!  Oh My are you going to thank me for this one!

I must say that this recipe comes with a warning:  One bite of this and you will  be hooked!  There is no escaping the addiction that this fudge will create in your life.

Seriously though I may need a Support Group to get me off my sugar addiction in whole.  But until that day I am going to keep popping these guys in my mouth!

These guys are really easy to make and the hardest part is waiting for them to cool off and set up.  Would you believe that these guys are made with pudding mix?  Yep you heard me pudding mix.  I wasn’t lying when I said these were easy.  No worrying about trying to get eggs and cream cheese to bake up perfectly.  Just some pudding mix, milk, butter and lots of powdered sugar.  I used Almond Milk for that extra burst of sweetness and flavor.

Really what would cheesecake be without cherries?  I have to say that plain New York Style Cheesecake is my favorite.  I know that all the fun kinds like turtle or red velvet and all kinds of toppings are very yummy and popular.  But there really is nothing like the classic creamy goodness of a rich cheese cake with cherries on top.

So why would you leave this yummy fudge without a cherry on top?  Well you wouldn’t!! So make sure you drain your cherries well on pop one on top of each luscious piece of fudge!

    Hm. It seems like everyone here who’s making it is running into the same problem I did: you can’t melt 4c powdered sugar completely into 1/2c liquid butter. I think the confusion comes when the directions say it’s supposed to be completely melted before you add the milk. I burned it trying to melt all that powdered sugar, but I tried adding the milk and it came together.

    Hi Lindsey,
    Thank you for reaching out to me. I am sorry that you are having trouble.
    Once you add the milk it will all smooth out. I had someone else ask me the same thing. I have made this a few times and have never had a problem. I may need to redress the recipe so it easier for all to understand. I am so sorry that you are having trouble with this!

    I haven’t been to the store yet to see what the options are about the pudding mix. What size are the boxes of pudding needed, and are they instant or cook-and-serve? Thanks! Can’t wait to make this!

    I made these today. I hate to say they didn’t come out very well :(( The powder sugar was hard to melt in the butter, I wasn’t sure if I should pour the dry pudding mix in at the same time as the sugar?? Or if I should have followed the direction on the box then pour pudding mix.. I will try and make another batch tomorrow, because they look so yummy!

    • Chandra@The Plaid and Paisley Kitchen says:

      Oh I am sorry! Yes pour the pudding in first let it melt then add the powdered sugar. Make sure that the butter is completely melted first. The directions on the box won’t really help, that will make pudding not fudge. I really hope that it works for you the second time! Thank you so much for stopping by.
