Ooh 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!

This recipe is 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!

Did you make a recipe from the blog?  Don’t forget to snap a photo of it and tag #PandPKitchenrecipes on Instagram and Twitter!  I’d love to see what you’re cooking! 

My tips for success: When you add the pudding and powdered sugar to the melted butter it will combine fast!  It will not become a liquid. Once it all becomes like a paste and the milk and butter are mixed in, immediately remove from heat and spread into the pan.

    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!
