Would these work for you TxGuy? Love Fort Worth area, by the way.

BEST EVER CHEESE FUDGE
(Guaranteed to be the creamiest fudge ever)
  • 2 cups butter
  • 1 pound processed cheese food, cubed
  • 4 (16 ounce) packages confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Melt together butter and cheese.
  2. Mix in confectioner's sugar and cocoa into the butter mixture. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Spread on two big cookie sheets. Cool. Cut. Store in refrigerator.
MARSHMALLOW CREAM FUDGE

Serving Size : 6 2

1/2 c Butter
2 c Sugar
1 cn (5 oz.) evaporated milk (2/3
-cup)
1 pk (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate
-morsels (I use Ghirardelli brand)
OR 2 cups milk chocolate
-morsels
1 Jar (7-10 oz) marshmallow
-cream
1 t Vanilla
1 c Nuts, chopped (optional)

Place butter in 9x9x2 inch dish. Heat in microwave on
full power for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until melted.

Blend in sugar and evaporated milk. Mix well.

Cook in microwave on Level 8 (medium-high) for 15-17
minutes or until soft ball (see note below) stage is
reached. Stir mixture frequently during cooking time.

Blend in chocolate morsels, marshmallw cream, vanilla
and nuts. Stir until smooth. Chill until firm. Cut
into 1-inch squares. Store in airtight container.

NOTE: the soft ball stage is when the candy syrup,
when dripped into very cold water, forms a firm ball
which does not flatten on removal from water.

Peanut Butter Fudge

1 tub white or chocolate frosting(I used coconut pecan with great success)
1~18 ounce jar peanut butter(with or without nuts your preference)

Put both into a saucepan and heat on low stirring constantly until blended. Pour into a 9x13 baking pan or 2 8x8 square baking pans that have been well buttered. Refigerate overnight.

You can add anything you like to the mix, pecan, walnuts, dried fruits, etc.

I have made this fudge from when I had to stand in a chair to reach the stove. It is the richest and creamiest fudge I have ever had. This fudge will turn out perfect every time if the directions are followed exactly. No thermometer, ball testing or other difficult cooking procedure other than a timer with a second hand is needed. A 4 quart cast iron Dutch oven or other heavy pot, a 9 x 13 inch baking dish, and a wooden spoon are all the tools needed.

#1 FUDGE
3, 6 ounce packages high quality chocolate chips
1 jar marshmallow fluff
2 cups chopped walnuts or other nuts
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
In a 4 quart heat proof bowl combine chocolate chips, marshmallow fluff, nuts, and vanilla and set aside.
In a 4 quart Dutch oven (preferably cast iron) combine sugar, evaporated milk, salt, and butter. Bring to a boil over medium high heat stirring constantly. Boil for EXACTLY seven minutes while still stirring.
Pour syrup over the chocolate chips and stir until chips are melted and marshmallow is dissolved.
Turn out into a lightly buttered nine by thirteen by two inch baking dish and allow to cool slightly then cut the fudge into one inch squares with a sharp knife.
Continue cooling for at least four hours or over night.
