Dairy State Fudge From Country
I grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, so it's only natural I have a lot of recipes that use dairy ingredients. Our farm also had a lot of hickory trees, so we always made this fudge with hickory nuts. I make this candy nearly every Christmas. You'll find it's hard to eat just one piece.
INGREDIENTS 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons butter (no substitutes)
2 pounds white almond bark, broken into small pieces
1 to 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans, walnuts or hickory nuts
