Chocolate fudge.

Kicking off 2019 with homemade chocolate fudge is the definition of delicious. It is simple and scrumptious—just the way we like it. From all of us at The Post, have a happy New Year!


3 ounces cream cheese

2 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar

2 1-ounce squares of unsweetened chocolate

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

dash salt (optional)

Sliver of butter to spread on a cookie sheet to keep the fudge from sticking


Melt chocolate on medium heat in a small saucepan

Remove from heat once both have completely melted

Cream cheese until soft and smooth (this can be done with a butter knife for a fantastic wrist workout)

Slowly mix in chocolate

Sift sugar into a separate bowl

Slowly mix in sugar

Mix in vanilla

Mix until well blended (add optional salt)

Grease cookie sheet with butter

Press mixture onto sheet

Place in fridge until firm (approximately 15 minutes)
