This recipe is really easy to make and the hardest part is waiting for them to cool off and set up. 聽Would you believe that these guys are made with pudding mix? 聽Yep you heard me pudding mix. 聽Just some pudding mix, milk, butter and lots of powdered sugar. 聽I used Almond Milk for that extra burst of sweetness and flavor.

Really what would cheesecake be without cherries? 聽I have to say that plain New York Style Cheesecake is my favorite. 聽I know that all the fun kinds like turtle or red velvet and all kinds of toppings are very yummy and popular. 聽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? 聽Well you wouldn’t!! So make sure you drain your cherries well on pop one on top of each luscious piece of fudge!

    Upset. I accidentally added 1 cup of milk instead of 1/4 and it’s slimy! Now I have to start over and fo grocery shopping during the Christmas week. 馃檨 was really looking forward to tasting it today.

    Dear P, this is a great recipe but I found it too sweet and somewhat grainy so here is what I changed the 2nd time around: I subbed a brick of cream cheese for 1 stick of butter and melted it with the milk and 1/2 stick butter. I put that into my mixer and added the powdered sugar, which I reduced to 3 cups, and pudding mixes and used my dough hook to knead the batter. It came out much more like cheesecake, was not too sweet and no graininess. Thank you for the recipe – I would never have thought of using the pudding mix.

    the flavor of this is really delicious. However, I found it to be gritty. I think next time I try it, after the butter is melted, I will stir in my milk and wait to add the powdered sugar until the milk mixture is hot enough to dissolve the powdered sugar. Overall, I really liked it. I used an 8×11 pan and barely had enough mixture to pour over the bottom and even so, it was as thin as a Hershey bar. I’ll do a double batch next time.
    Another thing I did was I reserved about a 1/4 of a cup of mixture when I was pouring it into the dish (maybe a little less than a 1/4c) and stirred in a little bit of strawberry jello into it. Then I poured that over the other mixture and used a butter knife to swirl it into the original mixture.. Strawberry cheesecake fudge. Yum! I’m sure there are endless possibilities to the options for this recipe.

      update…when I said I added strawberry jello,,,I meant just the powder of the jello in it’s dry form.. just wanted to clarify that.

    This looks great! I’d like to make some for Christmas. Can anyone tell me approx. how many pieces this recipe makes so I’ll know if I need to double it? Thanks!

      Hi Shelia! That is a great question. The recipe is made in a 9 x 13 pan. You control the size of each piece by how you cut them. So you can actually get as many as you want just cut accordingly. If you really need a ton of pieces and you want to double, I suggest making 2 separate batches. I hope this helps. Thank you so much for checking the blog out!

    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!

      Oh Thank you so much for pointing out my typo! I am so sorry that I did not catch this sooner. It should read 1/4 CUP plus 2 tbs Milk. I hope that helps and thank you for stopping by!
