I really like the taste of fudge and pecans together, so this recipe sounds delicious to me!
- 2 cups pecan pieces, toasted on a cookie sheet for 5 or 6 minutes at 350 degrees
- 16 ounces confectioners sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup chopped nuts, your choice (optional)
Mix sugar and cocoa. Place cream cheese in double boiler, stirring until melted but not bubbly. Do not let it cook! Remove from heat and stir in sugar/cocoa mixture. Add vanilla, toasted pecans and chopped nuts. Place in a greased pie plate or dish. Cool completely and then cut into bite-size pieces. Store tightly covered in fridge.
