This recipe is so easy to make. It's made with cream cheese and done in the microwave. Add some chopped pistachios for some added crunch!
I absolutely adore fudge. I'm super addicted to it. It's just one of those things you can't make enough of.
I love a good traditional fudge, the kind you need a candy thermometer and a ton of patience to pull off. However, sometimes I just do not have the time, nor the patience to make a good old fashioned, traditional fudge.
When that happens I make fudge in the microwave. It's quick, it's easy and you can nosh on it pretty soon after you make it. So if you like instant, or almost instant satisfaction this fudge is for you.
Microwave fudge tens to have a softer consistency than traditional fudges. Again, while I love that first bite into a crisp traditional fudge, there is also something so special about buttery, soft microwave fudge.
When I make this type of recipes I really love throwing in some crunch. This particular one has pistachios in it. But I've been known to toss in other nuts, or candy pieces to get that crunchy bite. The possibilities are endless.
If you've never made quick and easy microwave fudge you are really missing out. It's soft and creamy, plus the added bonus of how fast it comes together is priceless. I don't know about you but some days I only have a few minutes to spare for baking. This is perfect for days like that.

I think I need to join an addiction group after all of the fudge I consumed this year. 🙂

Wow this has got to be THE most creamy fudge in the world. I am not much of a fudge maker. Too many grainy products in the past. BUT I think I might be able to do this. I think the cream cheese will give me a head start.
Looks Lovely!! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!! All the Best! xo Ramona 🙂
