Cream cheese fudge

Cream Cheese Fudge

Yield: 3 dozen 1½ X 1½ inch pieces
~ A smooth, lightly chocolate fudge with the deliciousness of cream cheese ~
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 – 8 oz Neufchatel cream cheese (1/3 less fat)
1 Tbsp instant Espresso powder
¼ c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
¼ c chopped walnuts
Line an 8X8 dish with aluminum foil, buttered to allow release of candy; set aside. Melt chocolate chips either in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or in a double boiler on the stove. Mix the cream cheese, espresso powder and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add melted chocolate, vanilla and mix until well combined. Add nuts and incorporate. Spread in the prepared dish (I used a glass of warm water, dipped my spatula in the water and spread the mixture to an even thickness). Place in the refrigerator until can cut easily, length of time will depend on thickness of candy. Keep refrigerated in a closed container until ready to serve
